Posted in: King coal rules for power utilities in Japan See in context

People want to eat their cake and have it too. Japan needs energy. If you live in Japan your going to have to settle for coal or nuclear. It's just the way it is until green energies (if ever) become more viable.

Also the government is changing the law for the solar panel energy mandatory buying for electric companies because it's forcing the electric companies to raise prices on people who can't afford the panels. So these schemes to make people go green usually end up hurting the people financially. And people will need the money especially with the sales tax increase.

Coal is the reasonable answer for Japan atm and their coal power plants are much more cleaner than China or India. Maybe people should demand those countries add scrubbers to their coal power plants rather than obsessing on co2. We can prove the pollution coming from those plants are cancer causing and unhealthy at least.

I believe the debate was whether or not to raise it to 10 percent in October. Not about 10 years.

Japanese politicians trying to change the debate. Funny thing is, it usually works.

Posted in: TOEIC drops out of Japan's new university entrance exam See in context

This is the result of Japanese bureaucracy love for paperwork and long drawn out application procedures. Good on TOEIC for not standing for it.

I teach University professors to doctors and they all say the same thing. The government paperwork increases and changes all the time and it becomes half of their job to satisfy the system.

PTownsend. Interesting concept of culture DNA. Mao killed over 60 million people who would rejected the communist dictatorial rule. Maybe he was able to alter Chinese dna by the mass death. Not only the the Chinese people been under rule of some faction for thousands of years.

This is not really a key issue, as the media would like everyone to think it is. As an American I just want to see peace an prosperity between the two nations, but the Democrat media keeps this narrative going and as it continues the IQ of the nation goes down.

Your either for free speech or against free speech. I watched the video. I did not think it was awesome. By the logic the nz courts the video of the JFK assassination should be banned. If someone said that video was awesome should they be jailed? Free speech is not sometimes yes but sometimes no.

I guess American ideas are not for everyone.

Im pretty sure Jacki Chan wouldn't be able to step foot in China if he was out spoken against the Chinese government. Anyway he's just and actor, their opinions should be held with a grain of salt.

Posted in: G20 to tackle ocean plastic waste as petrochemical producers expand in Asia See in context

Tackling plastic pollution became more of a global priority after China, which had been accepting a hefty chunk of the world's waste, banned imports at the start of 2018.

For once China does the right thing.

Posted in: G20 to tackle ocean plastic waste as petrochemical producers expand in Asia See in context

Japan definitely uses way too much plastic in their packaging. It's a bit of a racket and half the time I feel like I'm paying more for the plastic than the product. Every snack here is wrapped in plastic placed on a plastic tray and wrapped and plastic again. Even the fruit is wrapped in it. It's over the top.

And I also have a suspicion that it's causing the stomach cancer to rise in this country. Everyone eats out of plastic bentous plastic bottles plastic snack packs, plastic is used to keep things organized; Good luck finding a glass pitcher in this country.

I could do with less of it.

Posted in: Japan to ban free plastic bags at stores to fight marine pollution See in context

This is dumb because it's not even Japan dumping plastic in the ocean. It's other countries


Its the same thing with reducing carbon admissions for "climate change". China spews dirty coal into the air; we get all this pm2.5 cancer causing pollution but no one talks about it.

Instead of banning bags Japan needs to point the finger at China more. And start doing some diplomacy to get China to put some regulations on the pollution. It's not fair.

Terrible. His own son.

This man's generation created this hikikomori types by being too over protecting. Now Japan has a generation of selfish self centered mentally unstable adult children.

Dont let your kids be a lazy parasite. Kick them out of the house. And why put up with an abusive son who leeches off you.

Its called tough love.

I wish they would stop blaming it on the USA and China. Japans economy has been on halt since the 90s and has never changed. It ridiculous. Plus they probably did it to themselves when they first implemented the sales tax for the first time. If they never added a sales tax maybe the economy would of been number 1.
