Blind and tone deaf, just like last year. They were heading off a cliff last year too until the athletes pulled the plug. Looks Like this will have to happen again. Unless The athletes have turned blind in a year too. Wh

See? The tests are dropping even further. Why even bother. And they want to base the Olympics off these numbers???

not really a blow as you don't want to have vaccines that kill you for some other reason. This is how science works you try and keep trying. It was already disallowed in Australia others will follow.

So much opportunity when Japan ditches the chains holding it back.

Japan already has pumped water storage and can use that more as that's not a new technology.

Canada's Enwave hydrothermal tubes in Toronto prevented us from needing a gas fired plant right in the downtown and provides air conditioning for the entire downtown instead. I think of Japan with all those coastal cities and salt water retains more energy than fresh water so it would be even more effective.

Australia has Tesla crying all the way to the bank with their battery storage and has made a significant impact. They're now working on Hawaii and will be Tesla's next success.

Spain solar thermal Andasol Solar Power Station uses molten salt storage to generate electricity 7.5 hours after sunset.

It's not just one country. It's not just one technology. Everyone is looking to themselves about what they have around them and what they can do. And they don't need oil and fossil gas.

And to top it off all of these are non lethal and during an earthquake would either be resilient or wouldn't cause a radiation leek that will last 35,000 years

Japan would be a natural for wave technology offshore and would be another fantastic opportunity and doesn't require sunlight.

Until then you'll see fossil gas execs trying to weasel their way into renewables like they tried to with electric cars and hydrogen to try to extend their influence. Truth is they're not needed. Why be held back?

Wind is still limited due to the towers, but If it's solar that ruins them because then no one would need them. Energy is no longer a limited resource held back by committees but suddenly within the capability of thousands of towns and homes.

Net-zero even net-negative homes are present today. Let's make them the norm

"We aim to lead the growth of renewable energy, which will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society," Tokyo Gas President Takashi Uchida said in a press release.

Uchida said his company is committed to a stable power supply by balancing output fluctuation in power generated by renewable energy with gas-fired power generation, its core business.

So he lied then, fossil gas is not a part of a sustainable society.

Posted in: Japanese hospital worker infected with coronavirus after 2 vaccine shots See in context

Find a media report about the 10’s of people who have died in Michigan from the virus.

Are you seriously comparing the relative health of super obese Americans to normal weight non-Americans on the rest of the planet? Because if so there are millions of science articles about that. Vaccines will help but if the underlying conditions are too far gone no vaccine is a miracle.

Also which variant were they infected with? The new ones with their faster infection rate usually crowd out the original one. Has E484K increased in the reports?

Yeah the body needs 4 weeks after last injection, but the body will have at least a head start and this will help them reduce the possibility of ICU or serious disability. Wish them well

The vaccination rate in Japan, which depends on imports of coronavirus vaccines, is far behind Britain and the United States, and lower than the global average of 5 percent.

Ok, but what is the vaccination rate in Japan??

I hope there is consideration to break up the prefecture in half, rename the other half that has nothing to do with the disaster to something else so at least some good can come out of a bad situation.

with the ongoing relentless release of contaminated waters over and over for the next 40? 50? 100? years, the words Fukushima and Japan will be forever synonymous with radioactive wastes for generations to come far beyond Chernobyl. The stain will never leave

also please note this will be ongoing for the next 40 years or more, as the leaking hasn't stopped.

They have no choice but to dump it. The notion that the water has been adequately treated is a canard in classic oyaji fashion. It had already been indicated earlier and it will be revealed later again the level of ongoing isotopes released. They will do their best to spin it though

Nuclear power should be stopped in Japan. There are many renewable resources to go for. Japan needs leaders who will forego the brown envelopes

The IAEA has backed the Japanese government's plan to dispose of the water, saying releasing it into the sea meets global standards of practice in the nuclear industry.
