Earthquakes: Joy for the Community

Excellent points here. I think the lack of good sense on the part of individual and corporate building owners is due in part to the general societal mindset that we have overcome nature. We can cool and heat our homes, offices, and vehicles, and then stay indoors any day the climate doesn't suit us.

It will take a general sensitizing of the population to designing with nature to realize much of a change in this situation. Having said that, I think the current green movement offers a slight window of opportunity in this direction.

Here's hoping that the author and other readers will keep talking in this vein until we start building in a way that will mitigate the damage that disasters cause.
