Chinese earthquake may have been man-made, say scientists


www.telegraph.co.uk[/u rl]

The 511ft-high Zipingpu dam holds 315 million tonnes of water and lies just 550 yards from the fault line, and three miles from the epicentre, of the Sichuan earthquake.

Now scientists in China and the United States believe the weight of water, and the effect of it penetrating into the rock, could have affected the pressure on the fault line underneath, possibly unleashing a chain of ruptures that led to the quake.

Interesting stuff saw a few threads on here about possible theories of it being man made (see other links) i think this is kind of shady considering they somehow see the problems now and didn't forsee it when they built the dam ... i mean if i was building something that close to a fault line i would do a lot of research in order to prevent these kind of things happening ... i don't know what to think ... what do you think?

tectonics is very complex, they probably had no idea this could happen -we're only just starting to learn that we can't do as we please with the earth, expect more lessons to come - i predict creating mass empty holes under the ground where we suck out all the oil is probably a bad idea, like how an engine needs some oil in maybe the earth does too?
