Posted in: Japan given infamous 'fossil' award at climate change conference See in context

Overall fossil fuel financing remains dominated by four U.S. banks — JPMorgan Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America — who together account for one-quarter of all fossil fuel financing identified over the last six years.

60 largest banks in the world have invested $3.8 trillion in fossil fuels since the Paris Agreement.

There is a difference between financing and investing. I suggest an economics 101 course. By far the financing comes from the commodities markets, which ARE speculators in oil by the millions of barrels in futures contracts. Without oil you have no clothes, no plastics nor cars and no food you don't grow yourself. Just where do you think fertilizer comes from.

Luddites just don't have any idea how many would die if heir unicorn dream of "no fossil fuels" was to fly over the rainbow. If hippies really worried about CO2 they would stop heating with diesel and get some nuclear generation plants built today. That is currently the ONLY proven clean technology extant today. The solar and wind promoters have zero science education.

Looking up this rifdiculous "Climate Action Network it is clear that the members are Africans that are looking for the free money that the hippy movement promised them to pretend they were "green".

People that squat over a wood fire have no business pointing fingers, especially considering that Japan is extremely careful with fuel usage. As well they have to be, because unlike Kenya and the Congo they don't have huge oil deposits.

Posted in: Do you consider the A-bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be war crimes? See in context

It was the first time they had ever been used. Now that we know how destructive they are, they have not been used again. It's no more a "war crime' than attacking Pearl Harbor without declaring war, and on a quiet Sunday to boot. The world now knows not to attack a free people. They will fight. Same goes for China. They fail to realize that Taiwan is a free country.

Posted in: Kishida cautious about Japan acquiring nuclear-powered submarine See in context

It’s okay to have dozens of huge reactors generating electricity in cities but not a tiny one running a submarine? It is much cheaper than diesel in the long run. Especially with diesel at $6 a gallon. This is why politicians should not be making military decisions. EVER. The maoists are far more dangerous. They aren’t expanding their military to not use it. When they feel strong they will attack.

It is a shame that the accused are not innocent until the state proves them guilty, but guilty until they prove the committed no crime. That is a travesty of Nipponese justice.

Posted in: Japan overturns decision to cancel U.S. drone acquisition See in context

The defense of Nihon has nothing to do with leftist mental disorders, one would hope. Defense should not be political in free countries, where it is the number one job of government. The FACT is that China has become a serious belligerent in the current age, necessitating a more defensive posture. Leftists are only concerned with their own power, which eventually leads to the enslavement of the populace rather than it's protection.

The US has spent much more protecting the peace 7000 miles from it's continent than Nihon has and the whining looks weak.

Dumbest thing I ever heard. iphones are made in the worst polluting country on the planet. Cutting timber in the US isn't going to do anything to stop pollution in China, where Xi answers to no one. They are simply taking advantage of the fact that lumber prices have more than doubled over the last 3 months.

Leftists believe that the US uses polls to elect presidents. But that is not true, we have an electoral college, one vote for every member of congress in each of fifty separate states. There is no doubt who will be reelected.

Trump has done an admirable job.

Reason and Wisdom? America rebuilt Japan. It no longer has a television or motorcycle industry for that reason. Stop whining.

Richard Gallagher, you think Switzerland is threatened by China? Appeasers always end up the first to be swallowed, find a history book. Switzerland is only safe because of the alps and the land based armaments they built into those mountains to repel invaders. Also every Swiss must join the army two years and keep an automatic military rifle at home for the rest of his life. The Japanese citizen has been disarmed and is helpless.

Posted in: Japan calls Ghosn's escape 'unjustifiable' in first official comments See in context

Prosecutors should never have that level of power that they can imprison a man indefinitely until he is forced to confess. In the US a trial must be held within 45 days or the accused set free. One also has the right to face his accuser in front of a jury of his peers. It is juvenile to make accusations to the public without letting the accused answer. This prosecutor should be fired for incompetence.

I don't blame him. It's ridiculous to keep a man in jail for years without a fair trial just to squeeze some cash out of him. This is about money, not crime. If the board didn't like the job he was doing it was up to them to fire him.

The media exists to stoke paranoia among the ignorant.

The comments here illustrate that reality only too well. Kyushu Electric wouldn’t waste the money starting the reactors if the power wasn’t needed.

There is no reasonable alternative.
