Maybe they should never have studied so hard and worked their asses off to get into this position in the first place. Then they would never have been appointed, never made a miscalculation and never been convicted. Better off being lazy and never aspiring to anything.
An inspiration to all those enthusiastic young kids.
Of course, but dont worry, they wont go to jail...yet.
how is it clear?
maybe they were right and it was unlikely that an earthquake would happen.
Don't be an idiot! What they said was true. I live in an earthquake area and that's what our scientists say too-- many small tremors usually are a sign no big one is coming exactly because the energy gets out slowly.
This is nature, once in a while the things go a different way. To jail scientists for that?! Madness! I agree that this was done to divert attention from construction companies and local government that is obliged to control compliance of buildings to the safety standards.
Its clear in the sense that there should not be a commitee if predictions could be so unacurate, I mean, the defense should have shown at least 10 cases in the past of this commitee in which the commitee said that small tremors would make very unlikely to have a big tremor and then no tremor happened. It would be a good statistical data, like out of 10 of 11 times the scientists were right and that unfortunately the earthquake thah happened was a misfortune. Look, I am not trying to attack the scientists, just explaining that if a comittee of major tragedies is formed, this commitee should not underrate risks. And I dont b elieve its that obvious that small tremors will dissipate the energy, in fact, every time you have a big earthquake you have small tremors before, so I dont believe theres a rule yes.
