Global Warming ? No its Grand Solar Minimum and the loss of food growing season time means less food globally.

Don't bother to see a dolphin show at USA aquariums cause they are not allowed to train dolphins to do any ticks as inhumane. So when visiting Baltimore MD aquarium now they just explain howe they ued to train them then lecture you on plastics use and how you are destroying the oceans . Even if they paid me to go back I would not go at 5x what they charged me to lecture me about a problem mostly caused buy other countries.

HOW MANY ANGRY TRUMP CALLS THIS VIRUS "THE CHINESE VIRUS"

Once Amazon started free shipping small business and private citizens rates went sky high to subsidize Amazons low rates. When they give something away it's just that someone else pays it. Amazon ships a box for $3. while private person may pay $12 to ship same. IN USA much has been twisted this way. When u pay full price for you child to go to college your also paying for that scholarship or minority person paying nothing

won't help at all unless you wear Goggles that will not allow air to pass your eyes. Look for N95 or better and they will help but not totally prevent as virus particles will get through. But know the virus usually rides on water or dust droplets so will help.

Once Amazon started giving free shipping small business and individual shipping rates skyrocketed to subsidize Amazon. No I have to pay $12. to ship same box as Amazon pays $3. When postal gives a discount one place they replace the profit paid by another.

Posted in: Costs for managing Japan's nuclear plants to total ¥13 trillion See in context

Nuclear electric has always run at a loss. They make it look good with heavy govt or should I say Taxpayer subsidizing hidden into cost per KWhr. It's no where as near safe as they origionally reported when building these plants and they ignored earthquacks and other natural events that is very obvious now. Beware false claims up to 50% power generation using wind and solar as wind does not always blow and it gets dark at night :)

Not developing cleanest cheapest power HYDROELECTRIC was Obamas big fail as most green sprouts went bankrupt but media hid this fact.

Tooo bad about Germany as they are down wind of the highest amount of N power plants in France.

Remember you did not want USA or airbases there anyway. So just ask them to leave as now I'm sure they will oblige you. were heading into a new world of competition and every country for itself. The grand giveaway all over the world with nothing in return but a top 1% gleaning all those funds out for themselves can no longer be afforded by ageing populations .

Posted in: Gov't proposes Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant water release into sea or air See in context

A DAY IN INFAMY !!!

This would pollute the entire ocean and those radio active isotpes would concentrate in sea life and edible fish right across to USA.

The small fish eats the radio active plankton, then is eaten by another small fish and so on till the poison gets higher concentration in Tuna, Whales and other food fishes much like Mercury from coal plants contaminate Tuna.

This will be a 1,000 reminder of what Japan did. Greta should be there to watch this in her future :) :)

It's all about keeping the faith :)

MMT is an experiment and Japan is most heavily MMT country. The Canary in the coal mine.

What happens in Japan will go viral in world.

I expect Trump to devalue the USD $ While Christine Legard will reset or bankrupt or whatever they call it out of debt issues. The next 2 years may be very wild.

The best any country can do is protect their ideas and businesses and take back those that migrated to maintain as much employment as possible.Japan is still the best quality maker in world but you let too much go to China and Korea.

Posted in: In Trump era, Europeans want a very different foreign policy See in context

USA should pull out of NATO and UN and let EU determine own fate and culture. Beside3s there may not be enough $ for all this in future what has become a great corrupt sharing of money supplied by US taxpayers. Every nation should assess what they can do for themselves as the globalist agenda is failing due to self centered agenda. Receding births and growth of GNP Japan is first to see these effects and is the Canary in the economic coalmine. Has MMT worked ?

Posted in: Japan's retail sales post sharpest fall since 2015 as tax hike hits demand See in context

So how many are shocked ? Of course and I think they will lose more taxes as higher tax with alot less buyers. We had same earlt 90s congress passed a luxury tax on highline autos, boats and other items. Americans stopped buying them, Many went out of business of overseas to manufacture lower costs so they got no income tax from workers loss too. Americans as they age are fleeing high tax states like NY, IL, CA and most of NE and West coast. Some states like New Jersey have exit taxes :) and they have almost non funded pensions taxpayers will bear soon. https://fee.org/articles/americans-are-leaving-states-with-high-tax-rates-data-show/

Posted in: Gov't says it is safe to release contaminated Fukushima water into ocean See in context

I'm still worrying about C02 :) to worry about this. So does this mean when I eat fish I will now along with all the mercury have to eat Radioactive Calcium, Iodine and Iron that will be absorbed by my body and stay in there for my life ? So whats to worry about they did not tell you about that cloud after Fukushima had what they called a hydrogen explosion with no mention of core meltdown causing water molecules to split and make hydrogen that went over Tokyo cause they thought OK too. They won't tell you that those isotopes like cesium strontium and others get absorbed into your body. Watch for big increases in thyroid cancer in next 10 years and remember why.

Posted in: Plastic bottles vs aluminum cans: Who'll win the global water fight? See in context

its kind of strange non can show me on any satellite map that giant plastic floating island 2-3x the size of Texas ?? Then they spend $$millions to send boats out to clean it up and none have heard a peep from them cause they can't find it either? I think its all a hoax and they often use photos in harbors of undeveloped nations where trash blew up. Besides most of Asia I see use plastic bags to hold fountain sodas.

Japan and America are quite clean nations and trash is well managed. So why do they keep pushing this on us instead of those nations that do pollute massively ?

If you want more inflation then put money in peoples pockets. Supply vs demand !

don't be surprised if deflation arises in near future especially raising sales taxes that will discourage purchases. https://youtu.be/h5-L2hoGkIc?t=3
