We Have Been Over and Seen the Future -- Via Google Maps

For a mind-blowing experience, get the Google maps version of the capital of North Korea -- Pyongyang. Click to get the satellite version, if it doesn’t come up automatically.

Now zoom in as far as it will let you -- just one step below the very highest magnification. Google will let you roam around the city, moving the image beneath the visible window.

What is spookily missing? Cars.

Welcome to the future -- as envisioned by Al Gore, the Sierra Club, Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats.

I much prefer the nighttime view of North Korea. http://tinyurl.com/m9suu5

Lights all around the capital, but the rest of the country is pitch-black.

Also a vision of environmentalists - no energy, except for the elite few they like.

The google maps pic you linked is roughly midday judging from the shadows. So its MIDDAY with no cars just for reference. Not early morning, or late evening etc...
