Contrasts

Japan magnitude 9 earthquake of 2011, 10s of thousands dead.
Haiti magnitude 7 earthquake of 2010, hundreds of thousands dead.

All the facts aren't in yet, but I believe that most of those killed in Japan will be from the tsunami.
Haiti did not appear to be affected by a tsunami.

Japan rich
Haiti poor

This is analogous to how climate change will impact people based on their economic status.
