[quote=JIMMYB,294627]Last weekend, I watched a TV programme which was about the earthquakes. In the programme, two seismologists have been invited. One insists that the earthquakes can't be predicted but the other hold the converse opinion---the earthquake can be predicted. Haicheng earthquake is an good example. On February 4th in 1975, 7.3 magnitude earthquake happened in Haicheng. Due to the precise prediction, only about 1000 people died. If it was not predicted, at least 100000 poeple would have died. However, the Tangshan earthquake in 1976 wasn't predicted. As a result, more than 240000 people died. This time, Wenchuan earthquake killed about 70000 people. How do you view this issue? Can humans predict the earthquake?[/quote]
