Indigenous populations in all parts of the world have been taken advantage of forever. If they do not want an oil pipeline to come across their land then it is right for them to stand up for their rights and for what is right? The fossil fuel industry has run over indigenous communities across the globe for years all with very negative outcomes for indigenous communities.

Based on the information that has been associated with the spread of this virus, I agree with Yubaru that the ship became, essentially, an incubator due partially to the re-circulation air system on the ship. It seems like having an air filtration system on the ships that kills bacteria and pathogens by design would be a good idea. Same with aircraft. I am thinking ultraviolet light systems or others that would, at least, knock down some or all of these bacteria before actively spreading the air around the ship or plane. Maybe that already happens, if not, seems like a good, not too expensive proactive move to make.

Republicans ALL know that what Trump did was an impeachable offense and was caught. In addition, they all know what they would have done if Barack Obama had done the same. What Pelosi and the Democrats did was 100% according to what the founders laid out in the Constitution. Their efforts were obstructed by the President all along the way in unprecedented fashion. Again, the Republicans know full well what they would have done if Barack Obama has done the same.
In addition, Pelosi and the House of Representatives have now delivered over 400 pieces of legislation to the Senate where the self described "Grim Reaper" Senator McConnel has chosen to table them and not allow consideration and votes. How does this help the American citizens?
What has happened to the Republican party?

I agree with "Do the hustle". There are proven ways to remove Tritium.
The truth is that scientists know how to create energy via Fusion. Am much safer and less expensive option. Regretfully, these scientists have been pushed to the side and ostracized. Why? In the meantime the world will need to continue to deal with these ugly situations and the fact that without Fusion technology there is no way to deal with the nuclear wastes.
Here is an idea: https://spectrum.ieee.org/energy/nuclear/could-fusion-clean-up-nuclear-waste

I am a 65 year old man. I have been involved in a natural resource industry for 45 of those years. I can tell you, straight up, that climate change has had and continues to have a direct negative effect on the products that my industry produces and I am sure all of you eat. I figure that, if I am lucky, I have approx 20 more years on this Earth before I move on. My children and grandchildren will live in a ever degrading world due to the burning of fossil fuels. Any critical thinker knows this to be true due to the mountain of research that we all have access to. It may be too late but we all have an obligation to do ALL that we can NOW to wean ourselves from polluting and destructive fossil fuels and support and implement non-polluting and sustainable sources of energy . Sure, it will require various levels of sacrifice from all of us but to do nothing is incredibly selfish and hateful.

The ability for energy to be produced sustainably and without creating pollutants that damage our environment has been with us for many decades. Fossil fuel producers know very well what burning fossil fuels do to the environment. This has been proven by documents found through the Freedom of Information Act. The Fossil Fuel industry has had a stranglehold on energy production for many years and have actively suppressed the development and use of sustainable / no polluting energy sources. What has this brought the world??? A real question that we all need to ask ourselves.

I've got to believe that there is zero need to make beer with waste water. The mash and resulting liquid that comes from traditional beer making can all be used in equality "Eco-Friendly" ways that don't risk adulterating the ancient beverage.

"Research"????? Pretty disingenuous to have ever claimed that. No one believe that anymore. The sad fact is also that Whales have a very high Mercury content due to the continued burning of coal for energy and the Mercury that is absorbed in our oceans, so the result is that folks that eat whale are slowly, but surely, poisoning themselves.

Bernie is a good man and has stood up for the common man and woman his entire life. I honestly think that he should take care of himself so he can continue to fight the good fight in the Senate and throw his support behind Elisabeth Warren.

This Perdue guy is out of his league and woefully unqualified to be in the position that he is in. Reference statements like this: Rice is "a sort of a cultural issue in Japan" . Just pathetic!! :(

Posted in: On Japanese TV debate programs, men discuss difficult subjects while female announcers are on the set like ornaments. On TV dramas, too, you might see men holding a business meeting and women serving them tea.
