gadgets in the American home is the least of our problems- it’s trucks and cars - most of which are Toyota !

Until we reduce carbon extraction and oxidation green house effects will multiply!

Sure the Prius was a start, but wildly expensive for what it is!

We are now at 417ppm CO2, and the surface temperature of the sea is rising, which means the land doesn’t cool down as much, particularly on crowded little islands like JAPAN !

We’re going to see more of these vehicle deaths, both kids and animals, with Global warming, the rescue time gets less, wish you guys would get back onto Nuclear, instead of importing so much Australian coal

lot of techno fixes, too funny you don’t even mention planning dropping human plague numbers, these little island nations like Java with 179 million and you 126 million ! That’s an ecological disaster right there! And Gov says you need to avoid population reduction, wasn’t it in 2019 they proposed more migrant intake, yes economically but ecologically and climatically a disaster ! Same all over the World !

Posted in: Heavy rain hits Sea of Japan coast; flood warning issued See in context

My post was on topic, it was the over use of coal which has led to climate change, and subsequent weather events like this and more to follow.

It is indeed true our burgeoning population, as a result of abundant energy, has significantly changed this Planets weather patterns, with droughts and flooding rains, fires and polar vortex.

More rain in the same region as lives were lost is indeed tragic, are the mudslides also due to tree loss for solar plant ?

like doing something about a population after it’s born is much harder than birth control, same say no to planning permission easier than moving house, but this is different Government on purpose made it worse;vanityofvanitiesToday  06:31 pm JST

BBC reporter suggested cutting trees of the upper mountain of the area to build solar panels might have contributed to the disaster.

Yes it did !

Well the con-census by the expats on here is that it’s a GOOD THING, so maybe it’s the politicians that are out of touch, it certainly helped CHINA to have 500,000 less , look at them now !

First GBR48 time to do your research; if you think that is the answer suggest to your Government they partner with Chinese firm #NIO and two; try supporting Japan by recommendation for electrifying all vehicle by 2025 by HYBRIDOLOGY using only 2kwh NiMH per car, while lasting long long time and going 60mpg, that’s the best way forward; follow the lead of PRIUS.

Well virusrex vehicles, especially their ventilation system were not made to be cleaned this way, in fact same with cars and buildings, we maybe have to rethink and redesign air-conditioning ducting, completely, not just now but for ever

Do a Toyota Hybrid Camry sales pitch, especially for ride share, like Taxi and DiDi, also Tokyo could replace all those stupid old crowns with door opening white Camry for Olympics, that would boost sales, if you care !?!

Seems like quarantine not going to work, healthy people not going to die, so. . .

Remove all masks, let all people travel, make them healthy, no more eating bats and for their lungs no more smoking, give the people fresh air, reduce population and reduce pollution, fewer cars and coal burning and plastics burning.

Already most people live.

It seemed to get frightened just before a thousand, but Amazon and others have two thousand american dollar shares so the next rally I predict it will go over to $1500.

Posted in: British airports to introduce 3D screening for carry-on bags See in context

Actually I do feel this is a good idea for all airlines but wish they would enforce the size weight limit more.

Passengers in my opinion are still travelling with too much weight.

It is nice to buy local when you arrive and leave behind maybe for your guests or others, like in Op Shops when you leave.

I do that with all jumpers and coats, when I go to the UK, and carry-on much less.
