I truly wish that this type of voting existed in America. Think of how many problems it would solve…the “first past the post system” is fundamentally flawed.

This is a message most people don’t want to hear, but it’s true. Our biggest environmental problem is there are too many fucking people on this here planet. Adding one additional person to the population is an order of magnitude more environmentally damaging than the combined efforts of every other “green”/”eco-friendly” thing you will do in your lifetime.

In light of the tragedy in Japan, there have been hundreds of videos posted online — mostly of tidal waves, mass-devastation, dead bodies, and other sad things. But now, a few days later, the most unique culture in the entire world is already putting itself back together. For instance, unlike in any other country in the world after this sort of disaster, there is no looting. People are helping each other and already rebuilding, despite warnings of more earthquakes to come over the next month. Amidst power blackouts, searches for missing people and the on-going concerns over nuclear meltdowns, Japan is united — a thousand fold more so than the U.S. was after Katrina — and is already well on the road to recovery.
Anyway, here are a few recent Japan videos that stuck out to me:
Time-Lapse Animation Shows Japan’s Earthquakes
The 9.0 magnitude earthquake that struck off of Japan’s shore on Friday did not strike in isolation. This animation shows the true scale of this natural disaster.
After the tidal wave, the floods began…which pushed boats and cars around like toys. The power of nature is astounding.
Tokyo, 3 days after the disaster
“I am reporting what is happening in Tokyo Japan 3 days after the M9.0 earthquake. There are no mobile lights, radio players, food, gasoline in stores… people are in a little panic.” Granted this is relatively far from the epicenter, but I was amazed at how orderly society is still functioning.

Some kids who survived the Haitian Earthquake watch footage from Japan, with a perspective that only people who have been through a disaster can have.

And only a total of 23 animal control officers. This is not some third world country, this is the U.S.A.

I think this is part of the reason why the civil war in Somalia has lasted so long. Also, these guys are some pretty ballsy journalists.
