So if you lift a fish out of the water by its lips or tongue or cheek by the hook does that hurt or are we only talking mamamls like Dolphins or should we ban line fishing, entirely.

It just happens to be a bad time for the French Government and a bad time for the vehicle manufacturers, so the time of excess pay for Ghosn and many CEOs is over, but I still don't like to see him in jail over this.

And in the fullness of time, after the blossoms and bees, presumably you get the fruit, cherries galore one would assume, so are there not many many products made of the cherries filling the shelves and exported around the World ?

At 280ppm, CO2 has kept the average earth temperature at about 14 degrees C for at least the past 10 000 years. Now the level of CO2 in the atmosphere is 410 ppm, the highest level in at least the past 24m years (Eggleton, p177).

You think it has no effect if we keep adding to the level of CO2 in the atmosphere?

You see Ghosn wasn't just about saving Nissan twenty years ago he was about introducing LEAF ten years ago, and here you are squabbling about using the Palace of Versailles to celebrate Renaults sixty years as a car company, which cost sixty thousand, the price of ONE car !

mortality dropped by 20 percent, from 240 to 192 deaths per 100,000 people, due in part to reduced tobacco use.

I didn't see any advice from the Government to reduce smoking on health grounds in Japan !

Here its everywhere, and they give out free Nicotine Replacement Therapy. (Australia).

You should do it, cancer is a terrible burden.

activated carbon adsorption equipment, which collects some sulfur oxides in the exhaust gas, 

Its not "carbon absorption equipment", there is no such thing, and no where to put it, just in case anyone was confused.

Yes Rubbish Dumps did indeed produce methane, as do rice fields, a much worse green house gas than carbon dioxide.

In Australia, and probably Japan, organics are now composted rather than rotted (anaerobic), and returned to the farmers, but as with all waste streams, reduction is best.

We even tried worm farms but it got too hot for the worms.

Your best bet is to return to Nuclear, just no more mistakes, eh !

I think about time !

Its always a grey area, philanthropy business image property near work sites, gosh even the Queen walks a fine line.

Prosecutors work on prosecuting, they were the wrong Department from the start, it should have been retirement negotiation, and succession management, and could still be, depends on a suitable Chairman, and a supported CEO.

To burn or not to burn that is the question, (Shakespeare)

Closing coal, yet burning rubbish in incinerators and bio mass at Nagano, hmmm

Here in New Zealand and Australia we just burn at source (forests), saves all that building of power plants.

@pukey2

REDUCING is a LOT better than recycling, especially plastic. Recycling still requires energy and time.

Reuse, like we all did with glass milk bottles at school and home, was best, till we realised it led to obesity.

Ha ha snow clearing Japanese style, brushing away one flake at a time, but on a more serious note, I think we may look back on this era of profligate airplane usage as contributory emissions, causing weather pattern changes.

 I believe the modern factory farming practices of keeping 1,000s upon 1,000s of animals in unnatural extremely confined spaces,

I agree so is keeping them in a flood prone valley, we've just killed 300,000 cows in Queensland !

I think the world is starting to lose faith in Japanese cars again

Um, someone didn't read the article:

despite relatively solid sales

If your premise were true, the loss of profits would be seen as a result in a drop of sales.

@strangerland, if your rebuttal were true, loss of profit due to loss of sales, actually if you look back to what happened to Nissan, loss of profit was due to discounting, especially in North America, I can't go back because JT deny access to old issues, but at exactly the time this was coming to light, Ghosn was thrown in jail by the coupe.

Its across the board, and not because we're losing faith, quite the contrary, they are so well made, even a twelve year old Prius is as good as a new one, same with Honda, quality of Japanese cars is amazing, yet there is no very obvious technological upgrade direction to justify a new one, not just yet, petrol is cheap, and self driving has stalled, most people could go another three years with their existing car, and that's a good thing for the environment, not quite so good for the big manufactures.

Re;Swine Fever

@jenishiebel

 Eating mammals does not damage the environment. Human beings have been eating meat ever since there have been human beings. The earth and the environment are still here.

Extraordinarily wrong statement, pastoralists have prevented reforestation, and are currently clearing Amazon for more beef grazing, it is lack of tree cover that has contributed to flooding and other weather pattern changes.

This pig issue is about battery farming, it also causes issues in poultry where animal densities are even higher, humanity's greed for meat, animal products, like eggs and milk, not to mention fish and Whales is insatiable, because we are measured in the billions, even your little island has 120000000

Its probably because of the problem with apple and Fb not opening the phones and helping in criminal investigations, that they suddenly realised it was different in other countries and panicked, but in reality no one bothers there's just too much out there already, so its a non issue and Merkle is being more sensible than the paranoid "five eyes", scapegoating Huawei in particular.

I'll just keep using cash (accepted everywhere!) and my Suica card.

I'm with you on that one, put all my coin through the local Food Mart till, and Pasmo, for vending,trains and ebikes, and topped up at stations, but as you say if you let the market decide, it proliferates to the point of silliness.
