Posted in: Shimizu begins construction of 1.9MW biomass power plant in Nagano See in context

There are also other forms of biomass which can also be used to create fuel for energy, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biomass

Additionally, I remember when I was younger living in Japan, there was a policy of disposing of household grease by wiping cooking pans with newspaper -- this sounded dangerous and a fire hazard -- instead, it is better to save used cooking oil in a screw top jar, all the used oil can then be recycled as fuel for energy . . . .

Posted in: 42 people injured after suspected gas explosion destroys buildings in Sapporo See in context

Where people gather in large groups, may also cause accretion of methane gas . . . so it is very important to have well ventilated buildings with mechanical ventilation and/or operable windows/ skylights to allow gas to escape and fresh air in.

Posted in: Thousands of Australian students skip school for mass climate protest See in context

Australians should contact organizations such as the U. S. Green Building Council, and the Leadership in Energy Efficient Design to see what the U. S. is doing to combat climate change.  Recycling and conservation are two important measures.  https://new.usgbc.org/education

Second hand smoke for non-smokers poses a health risk.  I hope they know to segregate smokers from non-smokers.

Posted in: Abe visits Japan Coast Guard vessel, shrine for dead submariners in Darwin See in context

It seems strange that Abe has taken the view of Western countries, i.e. Australia, when there are many disputed military actions against Japan prior to WWII, tensions between U. S. and Japan in Tokyo Bay (much of this history seems to be hushed up?)  . . . in fact, the European (white) countries had colonized many parts of Asia in the Pacific, and these countries did not gain independence until after WWII.  Similarly, In the 1950s the disputed territories in the North of Japan there were reported conflicts (~1977) as reported in a Newsweek article, where Japanese may have been/ were killed by Russia -- perhaps this action was reflected in a Japanese movie, "Toshokan War" or "library wars" where civilians and university guards are killed by an outsider military who does not want the indigenous offspring to study a comic book, (perhaps representing the traditional Japanese language, and Kanji).

It's very sad to hear of bicycle and pedestrian accidents . . . . It's important to have bicycle lanes on roadways, as well as side walks for pedestrians. Bicycle riders need to wear helmets and reflectorized clothing, pedestrians also need to be warned to wear reflectorized clothing while traveling when it is dark.

I know that in other countries "light pollution" is a concern -- as too much light may affect wildlife, such as nocturnal birds.  Perhaps Japan this should also be a concern in Japan.

Posted in: Japan OKs ambitious nuclear energy target, plutonium reuse plan See in context

Enough material for 6,000 atomic bombs sounds much too dangerous . . . why not spend more effort on developing solar voltaic, wind mill, and other environmentally more friendly methods of producing energy . . . Japan suffered from 2 atomic bombs in WWII . . . . .
