the earthquake in japan,and rainstorm in china and the plane accident in brazil which i think they have a certain connection.

our nature gave the punishment to the humman,this year we have a lot of sad stories,and i do not want any more,it's enough!

and may be more of us should pay to the environment-protecting!

The only connection is that they were all on the news.

Earthquakes in Japan is like ice in Alaska: you're going to encounter it eventually. This last one was small compared to an even BIGGER quake in Kobe 12 years ago.

And not to sound course, but massive flooding in China is a regular occurance. You're lucky to have a year when hundreds of people are NOT killed by floodwaters.

And the plane crash appears to be a civil engineering design failure on the part of the runway. Rainwater, instead of draining away, collected into large slippery puddles.

oh,you are right,Bob i just want to look for some excuses that help me to point out the enviromental problems.

someday if it the enviroment was broken deeply,then a rainstorm may not just kill hundred men,

and in centain respect,if people have not invented plane,then there would not be any accidents at all.and i know which i said just make nonsence.
^^
and from a book i have just read,the author said that people just try to create many ways to live a convinient life,but the result is alway unexpexted,which make life more confused.
