"This video captures some amazing footage of the 2011 tsunami in Japan."
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
This shocking video makes me so glad I live where I live, granted we have blizzards but I would definitely take the snow any day over a tsunami or a hurricane. In this video it was like a bad car accident I waanted to stare at the horrific site oof mother nature taking her course but that was just it it was too scary! Can't believe this is normal for some people in the regions that they choose to live in.
Most people do not realize the sheer power of a tsunami. It has the force of the entire ocean depth behind each wave. It also pours onto land for hours until it stops then pours back into the ocean for another hour or so. Most people killed are killed by objects such as cars and buildings crushing them. Seeing videos such as these can help people get a better idea of the forces actually involved and maybe save lives.
I hope something like this never happens again. Tsunamis are unreal. They are literally horrifying and to see something like this captured on camera is actually really scary. Damn plate tectonics and people living on the water front.
Stratfor examines Japan's primary geographic challenge of sustaining its large population with little arable land and few natural resources. For more analysi...
It would make sense to me that for a place like Japan to sustain itself successfully, it would have to have some help from other areas with more resources. Again with the concept- people don't choose to be born, or where they are born... To be born in Japan is as unchosen by that person as it would be in any other country. I don't think people should have to pay for resources that they do not have available, especially because they are on an island/island chain that simply doesn't have what they need. I am really repulsed by the bartering system because of absolute indication of beyond excessive surplus and profit and greed and all that garbage that humanity reeks of. Yeah some people are happy, but we could be completely unburdened of all negativity if we banded together to rid the world of negativity itself. I know that Japan would be happy to receive everything that they need for no cost, but I also know that many people would be willing to work, and more willing to work, if they didn't have expenses to pay for... it would really be serving their life's purpose as a component of humankind if they worked to help others, rather than to pay their monthly rent. I don't have a clue how I would go about organizing a movement to transform this idea into a reality, but I'll work on that. In the mean time, I would advise supranationalism for Japan, and hope that with the alliance of other countries, they can band together and make deals that work for the greater good of their country, population, and the world.
This short video did a great job in explaining why Japan became expansionist in the decades leading up to WW II. The mountainous nature of the islands and lack of arable land challenges Japan to provide food for its people. To understand Japan you must understand her geography, this helps to understand why a country acted the way it did in the past and can be a predictor of future actions.
Wow... nothing yu read or study can inform like the real footage.
