Posted in: Have you had a long-term friendship, work or family relationship break down over COVID issues? See in context

Yup, a friend of 55 years moved to another state and got converted to extremist nonsense, and refuses to get the vaccine, screaming about his "freedoms". I reminded him he was also free to jump off tall buildings.

Xi is terrified of his own citizens.

The need for such control is a bad sign for all concerned.

In 1979 I was part of a team which tested the safety systems of the Mark I BWR's, like those in Fukushima.

No nuclear powerplant is safe.

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

Setting targtets is not enough, we all have to take responsibility for our choices and actions.

Power from new PV panels is down to 1.5 cents/kWh now, beating every other source by huge margins.

These changes must happen now.

I am an American who knows Japan can do it, using all sources.

Good luck.

Posted in: Fossil fuel power demand has 'peaked worldwide': analysis See in context

We now have studies which show we can close 74% of coal plants in the US, replacing them with renewables plus battery storage, and still save money, instead of letting the coal plants age out.

My own household and two electric cars is primarily powered by the grid-connected PV system on our roof.

Posted in: Fossil fuel power demand has 'peaked worldwide': analysis See in context

Two years ago Los Angeles Department of Water and Power signed a contract for utility-scale PV plus battery storage the cost of which is untouchable by fossil or nuclear power.

"The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is preparing a potentially world record-setting power purchase agreement (PPA) for solar + storage at 1.997 cents and 1.3 cents per kWh, respectively.

LADWP presented the 400 MW solar, 800 MWh storage project to the city's Board of Power and Water Commissioners on June 18, previewing its planned July 23 submission for approval. The solar + storage contract would beat out the previous U.S. record, a 2.376 cents per kWh solar project proposed by NV Energy in June 2018, with both the Nevada and California projects under developer 8Minute Energy."

They are not going into space, they are going up high then floating back down.

It's an "I did it!" brag for the rich crowd.

Posted in: American arrested on suspicion of smuggling cannabis oil See in context

Emplaced social strictures are hard to change, but will eventually. The Japanese People will at some time appreciate their ability to enjoy the benefits of cannabis in all its forms. I use it for my arthritis, and have several plants growing outside now. My PTSD requires it to get through the night.

Change takes time.

Posted in: Japanese youth are less involved in politics than their counterparts in the U.S. and Europe, as they feel disenchanted with the status quo and don't bother voting, while those who do tend to lean right. See in context

"But all those manga and anime characters and games are so much more kawaii and interesting than politics."

Yes, and they should be used to spread the right messages to the youth about their futures.

Perhaps the new awakening of youth in other parts of the world can catch on there, too.

Surely, Climate Change is a threat.

We beat back the crooked Trump Administration when the Decent Folk got aroused.

You can do it, too.

Yes, good work by an astute driver.

But will this lead to a flurry of calls by taxi drivers to the point of nuisance?

Posted in: Blinken slams North Korea's human rights condition See in context

I read three sources of information regarding North Korea daily. The sanctions are hurting even the coddled class in Pyongang, and the country keeps on trying to find ways to take more from the citizens with mandatory insurance schemes and other inventions.

Authoritarianism gets severe when hit with feelings of insecurity, and the Kim regime is worried.

Posted in: Trump's acquittal is a sign of ‘constitutional rot’ See in context

Republican senators swore an oath to their god, then lied and betrayed their oath and their nation.

It was not the constitution which failed, it was the character of the Republicans.

Deadbetles shouldn look up Baku and the other ruined areas of petroleum extraction, then look into the smoggy sky and ask what the hell are we doing?

My entire household and both electric cars run on the power from the PV system on our roof. It paid back in three years in gasoline replacement alone, and now gives us free power for household and both cars.

Trump is headed to prison. Having served for 70 sessions in 24 months on a federal criminal grand jury, I assure you there is sufficient evidence for indictment, prosecution, and imprisonment of Donald Trump.
