    Yep, great. We can’t predict earthquakes but of course we can harness the energy of earthquakes

    One way to harness earthquake energy: Suppose Japan had built a giant “wall” equipped with hydroelectric turbines along the coast, but this wall was buried underground and spring-loaded. Once the tsunami crossed the wall, they could release the springs and the wall/dam would pop up, trapping the water inland and generating electricity as it flowed back to sea through the turbines.

    Obviously impractical, but maybe a more realistic design could use a similar concept.
