Learning from Sichuan Earthquake?
A year ago, Sichuan had the 8.0 magnitude earthquake, killing near 70,000 people and destroying a number of schools. People thought the Chinese would learn less from the “Tofu” construction of schools in Sichuan. On 27 June 2009, one year later of tragedy from Sichuan, a building collapsed in Shanghai, where will held the 2010 World Expo. The photo (Xinhua News) of the collapsed buildings has been shown globally in the net. Sadly enough, the Chinese have not learned the lesson from the “Tofu” construction in Sichuan.
