Would Trump and his ilk have risen so high if not for Twitter? I think not.

I wouldn't trust Grant Shapps or James Cleverly to hold a drinking party in a brewery.

Don't trust these slimy, self serving UK politicians Japan.

Posted in: Are EVs (electric vehicles) good for the environment? See in context

To make the batteries in a Toyota Prius for example; the nickel is mined in Canada, which causes huge amounts of pollution, sulphur, acid rain etc. It's then loaded onto huge cargo ships on which it's shipped to Europe where it's refined. Then to China where it's turned into a sort of foam, then to Japan where it's put into the batteries and into the cars.

Anyone who says EV's are environmentally friendly have literally no idea what they're talking about. I'm not suggesting petrol or diesel cars are better, but EV's are definitely not friendly to the environment. It would be more friendly to buy a second or third hand petrol or diesel car and drive it until it can't be driven any more.

If scientists can work out how to make it quicker and easier, Hydrogen is absolutely the future.

If only more countries shared Vietnam's forgive and forget attitude. They're an example to so many countries which hold historical grudges against former enemies

I'd rather have King Charles and the monarchy system than a politicised presidential system. Yes, the monarchy isn't perfect, but what system is?

Posted in: Rented electric scooters vanish from Paris streets See in context

It's not like the scooters are a viable transportation method. They're just for entertainment and for the these companies to make easy money. I'm fed up with these companies and products acting as if they're green and eco-friendly. If it has a battery it's not eco-friendly

Posted in: Do you think mega-sports events such as the Olympics and the FIFA World Cup are good for the host country's economy and infrastructure in the long run? See in context

I've always thought that the Olympics should only be in Greece, if they want it, or somewhere else in Europe every four years. The current model which is used for these global events is totally unsustainable. Football world cup should only be in Western Europe. Rugby World Cup in UK & Ireland. Winter Olympics only in Canada. It will also reduce corruption when bidding for the hosting rights within the governing bodies.

Posted in: Japan tells citizens in China to lie low after Fukushima water release See in context

The hypocrisy from China and South Korea is hilarious. Manipulative media in both countries should take a good hard look at their own governments for what they do to the oceans. Pot calling the kettle black comes to mind. The media has even scared the public to the point that people are trying to break into embassies. Utter madness. Keep the fish and sell it domestically.

Until the ability to make profit from arms manufacturing is ended we will never see countries give up their arsenals, or an end to conflict around the world. It's all about the $$$'s

Posted in: BBC reports on Japan's 'chikan' problem which now includes videos See in context

I think this kind of thing happens almost anywhere, but it is the frequency which it happens in Japan and the lack of action by people that see it happening. Girls should be given self defence classes in school.

Sri Lanka does not need this project - the country is crying out for a waste management and recycling system, education reform, healthcare funding - New trains are way way way down the list - It just shows that Japanese companies don't really care about actually making these countries better places but instead making private profits.
