Tsunami/earthquake debris from Japan

The debris are still out in the ocean and articles from Japan are reaching our shores.

Even disasters have been globalized.

I remember as a relatively young child walking the beach at Long Beach (now Pacific Rim National Park) and finding glass floats that (I was told) had broken free from fishing nets near Japan and drifted across the Pacific. The recent events should be a reminder of how interconnected we all really are on this planet, and that some disasters have no borders. We are joined by the water, by the land, and by the air, to everyone else.
