The government’s carbon reduction targets will never be met. Renewable sources of energy are a poor substitute for conventional means of power generation. Trees and plants take in carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen in the process of photosynthesis. Cutting down forests to install solar panels will only increase CO2 in the atmosphere.

In Japan all men and women are equal under the law. Kelly is going through what other Japanese criminal suspects are going through. And if “American executives will start thinking twice about doing business in Japan ,” that’s just as well. Good riddance for vultures.

If Kishida really believes “spending will bring economic growth”, then he should abolish or at least lower the rate of the consumption tax, a penalty on spending,

Let’s have a joint naval exercise in the international waters just off Vladivostok.

A step towards a fascist state where people have a severely limited freedom of movement. The governments are ignoring the obvious fact that the vaccines aren’t 100% effective in preventing infection.

It’s amazing that the engaged couple haven’t seen each other for a full three years.

The case would have been sent to a family court if the victim hadn’t been a sex worker. It’s completely irrelevant. Psychos like this are too dangerous to walk the streets again. They should be kept away from society for life.

The Australian troops have always had problems with discipline. I hope they won’t think the new pact will give them a license to kill.

The pharmaceutical companies won’t be able to catch up with and develop truly effective vaccines against ever-mutating strains of the virus. And no one seems to know or care how much the government is paying those big pharmas to secure vaccines.

Don’t worry. The new PM’s. large-scale economic package will be all financed by issuing government bonds. Not a bit of your tax money will be used.

Bad idea. More and more fully vaccinated people are getting infected throughout the world. The new app will only encourage infected vaccine recipients to move around and infect healthy unvaccinated people.

The people at the Athletics Federation must be all muscles no brain types. After wasting billions of yen for the Olympics, they are hoping to host another international sports event. Doesn’t anyone ever learn?

Japan’s policy of cutting down broadleaf forests and replacing them with fast-growing softwoods like cedar and cypress is partly to blame for the increasing number of bear attacks. Since bears can’t live in softwood forests, they come down to towns in search of food.

The fact that rank and file LDP members supported Kono, as well as his popularity in opinion polls, shows how easily people can be manipulated by media propaganda. Proof that a country’s leader should never be chosen by direct vote.

The poster doesn’t know how parliamentary democracy works. If he did, he wouldn’t have made such a ludicrous comment.

I’d been hoping that the Koreans would one day come to their senses but they didn’t. Now it’s time for Japan to retaliate by seizing Korean assets here.

There’s no point in easing the quarantine rules when the fully vaccinated are getting infected and are in need of booster shots.

The recent surge and subsequent sharp decline in infection only means that the virus has become no more dangerous than a common flu, it’s about time they stopped jabbing healthy people.

Agriculture doesn’t need to look to the world. Instead, the government should increase the food self- sufficiency rate. In the event of drastic climate change and global crop failures, the first priority of any country would be feeding its people and not exporting food to other countries.

It’s appalling that 40% of the foreign students studying in Japan are from China, the country that constantly violates Japanese waters and airspace. Japan hasn’t paid much attention to national security since 1945. The country’s insular mentality is partly to blame for this.
