Nice to see Japan hasn't given up on nuclear, unlike Germany.

Well, we have one more argument, so far overlooked: CO2 IS NOT A GREENHOUSE GAS !! Because it is almost twice as heavy as air and quickly sinks to the ground, where it is consumed by plants .. https://youtu.be/vPhZzsAgc7Q?t=50

Sigh. The atmosphere of the earth is not like a closed vessel kept for a long time at a constant temperature where gasses might stratify based on different molecular weights. The Earth's atmosphere is highly dynamic, temperatures change constantly, with heating (convection) and storms creating updrafts, winds pushing air with CO2 strikes mountains and is deflected upwards (orographic lift), you have mountain waves on the opposite side of the mountains creating those spectacular lenticular clouds as air is compressed causing water vapor to condense, etc. These dynamics keeps CO2 in the atmosphere thoroughly mixed up to a good 130 kilometers above the surface.
