The last crucial words:

Naruhito noted hearing from his parents, Emperor Emeritus Akihito and his wife Michiko, about their experiences during the war and expressed his determination to continue their dedication to peace and to efforts to atone for the pain of those who suffered during the war.

While the truly weapons crazy LDP is at it, the Emperor and his family are striving for peace.

And in the spirit of George Orwell I am a left-wing monarchist.

Sky is the limit for people privileged to be born and serving in the developing world. Nature provides them opportunities and energy to work for the betterment of Planet Earth and its citizens.

Emperor says ties with developing nations key to tackling global challenges.

Developing countries are only a source of valuable raw materials. Outside that they are irrelevant.

Careful Mr Kipling,

Yes, China is far more benevolent to the developing world than the western powers. That is why they have been so successful.

I'm sure the LDP fossils are hanging on his every word. But good to see the IHA let his leash slack a bit.

There is talk about the possibility of third world countries "leap-frogging" in regards to their power infrastructure. That is to say, perhaps they could skip the whole burning coal route, and go straight to clean energy. One can hope.

In the meantime, it is the major countries, like the USA, China, India, and the EU, who continue to be the major polluters.
