This actually sounds like a very good idea - cheaper and more stable gas supplies plus cleaner energy. The only drawback would be the dangers of dependency on Russian gas, although Russian energy is usually negotiated on long term contracts so the risk is small.

Yeah I don't really see what the government should do if the house is just in 'disrepair'. I doubt there are that many houses where the owners can't be found.
Posted in: Even in cases where such houses are causing problems, it's hard to do anything about them without the owners' consent because they're personal property.

This isn't surprising at all. You have the oldest population on Earth, the vast majority not having a clue what digital music purchases are who also have all the disposable wealth in the country. On the other end, you'll hardly find any young people who aren't getting all their music digitally and free by torrents.

Ironically, the reason is because of Earthquakes. Above ground wiring is far easier and faster to fix than pipes underground.

Getting his wife up and taking a soft stance against him is Abe's plan. Everything she says is rhetorical and is very easily answered by Abe, which is exactly the role he wants for his wife. She's Abe's puppet and is actually very counterproductive to the plight of women in Japan.
