Are there climate change deniers in Japan like in the US?

Sometimes, I think our US conservatives are the only ones on Earth who still deny the science.

Hold on. folks, because climate change is just beginning. Those of us who studied this have known it was coming but were ridiculed by those without significant education.

I do not hear much climate change-denying this summer in the US. But the damage has been done.

Is the US the only nation with climate deniers?

Any in Japan?

Now, if conservatives could only find a way to have every American baby born with a sidearm, and come out shooting, will they be happy.

Conservatives care nothing for human life, they only care about control of others.

Posted in: U.S. nuclear industry hopes to expand output with new reactors See in context

I just read the US analyses of these technologies from past endeavors, and it does not look good: The cost savings from "modular" construction is turning out to be illusory. The smaller diameter cores mean lower burnup rates, and more complex and long-lasting nuclear waste. Using 3,000,000 F degree neutrons to boil water is nonsense. Boiling water to steam this way is not practical, with very high costs and dangers.

Having earned a Master of Science in Environmental Management in 1982 and watching our progress in sending ourselves to extinction, I confidently predict very few humans will be alive in one hundred years.

China will risk a world-wide nuclear war to get Taiwan.

If Xi does nothing else, he will take Taiwan to cover his other failures.

I was part of a team in 1979 which tested BWRs and their safety systems.

They are dangerous. Do not restart them.

Having worked alongside test pilots and astronauts at the Air Force Flight Test Center back when we flew X-15s, all three variants of Blackbirds and both XB-70s, I can say this silly film is just adolescence in afterburner. The real professionals are nowhere near as juvenile as Cruse.

Nuclear waste should be divided up and sent home with the major decision-makers in utilities which inflicted this on us.

Posted in: Swiss seek to bury radioactive waste in clay See in context

We are now seeing the tip of the iceberg which is world-wide contamination from our Faustian bargain with things nuclear. Following generations, if any, will curse us and ask why we could be so short-sighted and stupid.

Posted in: U.N. warns Earth 'firmly on track toward an unlivable world' See in context

Our injection of additional CO2 into the atmosphere and marine environments has destabilized the Stable State of the Climate, which is the resultant of interactions between complex systems. Conditions will start to change, to oscillate between extremes greater and greater until it finds a new Stable State, usually at one of the extremes, where it gets stuck. It may not be conducive to Human habitat.

Posted in: How fast can we stop Earth from warming? See in context

The permafrost is already thawing, and there is no way to stop it now. It will be the end of us, with methane tens of times more harmful as a greenhouse gas as carbon dioxide.

There are huge methane blowouts in Siberia, and even methane seeps now in Antarctica! But go on making fun of scientists, and keep listening to politicians instead of taking action NOW.

Posted in: Do you agree with the decision by many global companies to sever their business ties with Russia because of its invasion of Ukraine? See in context

The change will have to come from within Russia itself. I at first suspected the oligarchs would put pressure, but they have little. Then, I heard his daughters were worried about being Putins, scorned everywhere. But it will have to come from the Siloviki, the former KGB and other nasty folk now in government and in the ear of Putin. They are the ones who did the poisonings for Putin, and can see what Putin is doing to their nation now.

It will get worse. The permafrost is thawing, releasing massive amounts of Methane a greenhouse gas about 80 times the potency of CO2. We cannot stop it now, having Methane seeps in Antarctica already.
