im sure there are many companies that would do very well if they were given a $10Billion gift. if GM manages to take #1 spot off Toyota itll be just an illusion, because without that "get out of jail free" card theyd be basically be nothing.

wont work, supply and demand will always win. just like opec the major gas suppliers can easily reduce production creating a shortage which causes prices to rise. in the middle of winter when theres not enough gas supplied youd be suprised how much people will pay to keep there homes warm and showers hot. LOL

@tinawatanabe, I don't mind not joinning TPP for the sake of J farmers.
its this mass brainwashing of the Japanese people that causes all the problems, youve got an industry thats less than 1% of the economy, worked by mostly senior citizens that rely on subsidies of $50billion 6-7% of the annual budget. which basically makes it a welfare industry. Its this small minority that is holding the rest of the economy to ransom. and Japanese still want to protect them even if that 50billion could be better used on hospitals, schools and helping increase the birthrate by helping families with children. wake the f up Japan!

yes Vettel is very talented but much of it comes from his car, just look at michael schumacher with Ferrari, had all those wins, but when he made a comeback in a inferior car he could win one race.

all you dreamers need to wake up solar will never supply the base load power required, not until solar cells have a much higher efficency rate, not fo many year yet. also you need large amounts of wide open spaces and plenty of intense sunlight. none of which Japan has. Japan has no choice but to keep using Npower until renewables become much more affordable and practical

love him or hate him, one thing is true, passive protesting like what greenpeace do doesnt produce any results whatsover, "it only the in your face" approach that SS do that produce results and saves marine wildlife, the 1000s of whales that havnt been killed over the years is proof of that. chanting "go home whalers, stop killing the whales" from the deck of a ship isnt going to stop the slaughter.

comon hunting has been around since the beginning af mankind, just as long as you only hunt in moderation and eat what you kill. nothing more natural than that. or you can have somebody else do the killing for you and buy that nice steak, pork or poultry at the supermarket

@papa "eco terrorist" well that term is incorrect also, as a terrorist normally tries to kill/exterminate another life, seems the whales are better fitting that title.
