So many great tasty Japanese craft beers at great prices, no need to drink bland beer from Sapporo, Kirin, suntory and Asahi.

Okay... It's not actually a Google news story, just some home loan website. Totally wrong search methodology. Come on Japan Today! "Google Search analysis"? It should be "Google Search analysis by some idiots who have no idea about data".

It's an economically prosperous nation with a quality comfort of life.

Re: China. It's ranked at no.77 for quality of life by Numbeo, so maybe before you judge others yourself, you might want to check a few facts?

Something not right here. China at no.4? really? Yeah right I really want to move somewhere with an oppressive government and human rights violations! Not to mention labs leaks and sloppy hygiene...

Posted in: Is setting targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions an effective way to reduce the adverse effects of climate change? See in context

Temperature increase of 1 degree from 150 years ago TO DATE is not unusual or an amount of concern, and in fact has largely been beneficial to humans.

Temperature FUTURE predictions are unscientific and will almost all be proven wrong, as are almost all predictions humans make about the future.

Will never ever buy another Nissan. After what they did to Ghosn.

Posted in: Nissan CEO tells Tokyo court Ghosn had too much power See in context

And now the truth is out. As I suspected, this all happened because Ghosn broke Power Law no. 1.

"Law 1: Never outshine the master. Make your masters appear more brilliant than they are and you will attain the heights of power. When it comes to power, outshining the master is perhaps the worst mistake of all. Never take your position for granted and never let any favors you receive go to your head."

Makoto Uchida and the powers at Nissan could not take it. (Ghosn Versailles party etc). So he had to go, and be disgraced at the same time.

@dan

more like how wrong you are ! dear oh dear

Care to give an example? Once asked someone to give me some evidence about climate change, he sent me a link to a YouTube video with Alanis Morrisette talking about Polar Bears. So please don't do that.

Why do people so passionately believe in Climate Change despite the total lack of evidence?

This book explains it : The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements, a 1951 non-fiction book authored by American philosopher Eric Hoffer.

So your prediction about the future is that all predictions about the future are wrong. Except of course your own prediction about the future which is right because everything you say is by definition right. Am I understanding the logic of your position correctly here?

@rainyday

Correct, almost all predictions all humans (myself inc.) make about the future are wrong. For the theory and reasons, read Nicholas Nassim Taleb books, Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness.

Also read about Chaos Theory, Sensitive Dependence of Initial Conditions etc. as to why we can never make an accurate prediction for deterministic nonlinear systems (eg the climate).

My statement was not a prediction of the future, just an observation of the people who make predictions.

Do you have an example of a 10 year climate prediction that proved accurate? I'd be interested.

Finally some common sense on the Climate. Well done MUFJ!

To date, Temperature increase of 1 degree from 150 years ago, is not unusual or an amount of concern, and in fact has largely been beneficial to most humans.

Temperature FUTURE predictions are unscientific and will almost all be proven wrong, as are almost all predictions humans make about the future. (eg Al Gore on Kilimanjaro, how wrong can you be...)

Read Freeman Dyson on the climate, one of the worlds greatest scientists and thinkers.
