dams in earthquake country? - um... no thanks

Great blog I've been recommended - Clean Green New Zealand - really?

The latest post considers previous earthquakes of Murchison 7.8 1929 and Inangahua Junction 7.1 1968 and the proposed dam on the Mokihinui - and asks
"Is it really a good idea to build a dam that will create a lake 14km long, above a (small) town, locate it in "Earthquake Country", and over a fault line that leading scientists claim is long overdue to move?"
That is a pretty good question and offers another reason to oppose this damn dam.
