There are reports that animals avoided the tsunamis, either confirming their sixth sense or that their five senses are much more sensitive than ours.

Notwithstanding the animals ability to sense subtle changes in their environment, here is another reason why mankind is running the joint:
Here's what this is all about.
Nanoscale polymer capsules could one day be used to deliver chemotherapy direct to tumours, leaving adjacent tissue unscathed. The capsules would be designed to rupture when heated by a low-energy laser pulse, delivering their payload right where it is needed.
