Please don't repeat this hyperalarmist nonsense.

The natural world, the physical world, is not dictated by your wishes, by what is convenient to you, and by your desire to deny and ignore the alarm.

even if we stop all greenhouse gas emissions immediately and force 80% of humans to starve because they can't work and earn a living.

There are excellent ways to earn a living without burning petroleum.

I would like to say that this heat wave is a manifestation of a malignant climate crisis which must be tackled urgently.

Please elaborate. How easy is it?

Solar electricity is now cheaper than electricity produced from carbon. EVs are much more worthwhile than petroleum weagons.

Instead of bowing all the time, why not start manufacturing EVs? This would be beneficial for Japan and for the world.

Your prediction isn't.

When my prediction materializes, no one will be there to see and acknowledge it.

Noone theorizes about boiling oceans, noone forecasts Earth's oceans turning to steam.

I am not the only one who understands the grave consequences of the continuation of the greenhouse process. But other people are intimidated, and do not say their mind, because the denial of the climate crisis is very fierce and dominant.

You should at least remove this unbridled nonsense from your copy&paste essay.

I do not think that my opinion is nonsense. But even if it were, the freedom of expression allows to express various opinion, correct or not, nonsense or not. You are entitled to state your own opinion, and I should be entitled to state mine. I will continue to warn against the climate crisis as long as this crisis is being ignored and deinied, and is not being addressed.

Another recent article in JT, related to the pertinent general subject, reported about a runaway melting of Antarctic ice sheets. It cannot be denied that the bleaching of the corals is caused by the rapid warming up of the oceans.

The denial of the climate crisis is stupid and suicidal. Our knowledge of physics and system theory tells us that in the wake of the inputs inserted by humans the climate system has become nonlinear and unstable. This system is full of malignant positive feedback loops that push it away from equilibrium. There are no stabilizing mechanisms whatsoever that can keep the climate system in equilibrium. But there is no need to be an expert: The rapid rise in temperature and humidity is visible to the naked eye. The catastrophic loss of our planet and the ultimate extermination of humanity are very near. But there still exists a remedy: Moving away from energizing ourselves from petroleum and carbon, and moving on to a new era of energizing ourselves from the sun's radiation and from heavy nuclei. That is easy to do, and should have been done a long time ago. However, there are powerful social forces that fight vehemently against this simple and obvious cure and against the attempt to salvage the planet and the human race. These enemies of the planet claim that moving to modern transportation based on electricity will ruin our society. But these petroleum lords and advocates do not explain how can the usage of efficient, economical, high performance and enjoyable electric cars ruin our society. What society will remain when the temperature rises to hundreds of degrees Celsius and the oceans boil and become steam?

It is time to establish peace in East Asia. That region of the world has known enough in the second half of the 19th century and in the first half of the 20th century. Japan has suffered enough, and does not need another war related to Korea.

When the vegetation of the Pantanal is burning down, it means that it is converted into CO2 and rises up to the atmosphere.

The political system of Korea and the relations between the two parts of Korea are the business of Korea. Japan should mind its own business.

three aggressive expansionist states flexing their muscles.

Korea has never exerted any expansionism throughout its history. (Unfortunately, Japan did, against its own interest.) Korea only wants to manage its life according to its own style. Japan should let Korea alone, and concentrate in solving its own problems.

All other members have applied and (eventually in some cases) been approved. This will happen when there’s an expansionist dictatorship on the doorstep.

Japan is pressured to join a NATO-like framework in East Asia. This is not the interest of the Japanese people. Japan used to live in peace with Korea during the Tokugawa period, and should live in peace with Korea now. Japan should not interfere militarily in Korea, and Korea should not interfere militarily in Japan.

Posted in: World not ready for climate change-fueled wildfires: experts See in context

Wildfires are one of the positive feedback loops that accelerate the malignant greenhouse process: The burnt organic materials rise to the atmosphere in the form of CO2. The enormous amounts of added CO2 cause a further rise of the temperature and this, in turn, causes more wildfires.

They do, it is just that they are 10 years behind the Chinese in terms of technology and refinement.

Japan is a great nation, with great talents and with enormous human resources. They could have done much better. The problem is that the conservative mentality of the ruling circles wants to adhere to the past.

or believe different scientists

It may appear that there are two scientific camps with equal standing, and anyone can choose to which scientists to believe. However, there are various types of scientific arguments. The strongest scientific arguments are those that are tightly connected to experimental evidence. The amount of ice at the poles and high summits is being monitored. The temperature around the globe is being measured. time profile of the temperature for the recent period, as well as for a very long time in the past, is known – Watch the video with the title "This Will Be My Most Disliked Video On YouTube | Climate Change" at the ASTRUM YouTube channel. The author of the video wants us to survive, but he is to shy or intimidated to say that explicitly.

The entire humanity wants to be salvaged from the stupid and redundant climate calamity, and survive. Governments must act. However, it is mainly up to the people. Those with entrepreneurial spirit – invest in solar energy projects: It saves the Earth, and brings good money. Car owners – replace your retarded petroleum wagons into EVs: It saves the Earth, saves money and brings comfort and performance.
