Anti-establishment protesters will most definitely be arrested. I think that is the whole point. The Iron Heel is upon us. Yubaru. You are correct. This is just the beginning.

ares7. By implementing a very serious and far reaching energy saving campaign. Put people on the streets forcing shops and companies to turn off their outdoor lights during the day. Encourage people to use public transport. Enforce a no idling policy for people who are reading a magazine inside 7-11. The average heated toilet seat uses about 40W. Times that by about 50 million toilets. That is a lot of energy. Encourage people and companies to use their brains.

Barry Callebaut’s investment decision predates Abe’s election win last December. So why the heck is Abe mentioned continuously throughout the article? Biased media at work again.

I love this "income is improving" statement I have been hearing lately. Whose income? Has minimum wage been increased? No! Any companies that rely on imports to produce domestically sold products are looking at scaling back wages or downsizing.

Cleo. Believe it or not, a lot of hunters eat what they shoot. These hunters are often the greatest stewards of the forests. They enjoy being out in nature (and hunting) and do not want to see the places they love disappear. As InakaRob said, of course there are idiot hunters, but as a group hunters are generally a very responsible lot.
OnniyamaNov. 14, 2013 - 11:14AM JST
TonyAlderman. I am very surprised that you are able to hunt here in Japan. How hard was it to get certified to own a weapon and obtain a hunting license? Also, how costly? I used to hunt a bit when I was young in Canada. I loved being out in the bush with a rifle or shotgun.
OnniyamaNov. 12, 2013 - 08:59AM JST
CraigHicks. I think you hit on the key issue. There is no way humanity can continue at its present energy consumption. We must cut back. I still see outdoor lights blazing away everywhere during sunlight hours on a daily basis. People have learned nothing.
