In South Osaka yesterday, I noticed the hazy air due to the mild temperatures and lack of wind.

Pollution as per usual, just more visible than usual.

yeah, right. Here's the New York Times one year ago:

"Japan now plans to build as many as 22 new coal-burning power plants — one of the dirtiest sources of electricity — at 17 different sites in the next five years, just at a time when the world needs to slash carbon dioxide emissions to fight global warming."

Itochu Corp. is selling its 20 percent stake in a coal mine in Colombia to Drummond Company Inc, a U.S. coal producer that owns the remaining 80 percent, as part of efforts to promote decarbonization.

Unless it's persuading Drummond to divest from coal, this ain't promoting decarbonisation.

For consumers, recycling PET bottles can be one way to do their part in protecting the environment

Oh yeah, rely on the poorest sibling of Reduce - Reuse - Recycle to save the planet.

What are the energy sources for the recycling, and why can't drinks brands offer powders and syrups for consumers to dilute themselves? I remember - lazy profits.

2/10 for this greenwash.

> Carbon dioxide does not cause smog. Japan has good quality air.
