Japan Continues Their Leadership In Rejecting Junk Science

(Japan) has more than 90 coal plants and plans to operate 22 additional new plants. It relies on coal for more than a third of its power generation needs, resulting in an upward increase in carbon emissions.

 

Japan’s woeful climate plan amounts to science denial

    Orientals are very different from Europeans and more likely to go their own way.

    “. . . the goals of Paris Agreement more turbid.

    Goals?
    Perhaps there is an English as a 2nd language issue here.
    Turbid and more as used only confuse the reader.
    The notion they are reaching for is turgid. That is the Paris goals are turgid. Japan rightfully ignores them.
    The USA is refusing to pay indulgences.
    What does this have to do with a virus?

    LOL!

    ” … … have made the goals of Paris Agreement more turbid.”

    I’d say “turbid” goals (cloudy, opaque) were always a feature of the so-called PA, not a bug.

    Perhaps they actually meant “turgid”, which in language means ” tediously pompous or bombastic”

    There, fixed that for ’em.

    Pretty funny coming from two Indian nationals, one of whom is studying in Hong Kong.
    These fellows are aghast that Japan’s Nationally Determined Contribution, or NDC (to “saving” the global temperature anomaly) “lacks ambition”.

    Give us a break. In their own article, they mention in passing that China and India are actually in first place and third place respectively, in terms of national CO2 output.

    As Japan is a major manufacturer, it depends on access to affordable & reliable energy. This will come primarily from fossil fuels (particularly given the current depressed prices on global markets) for some time to come. The situation is no different for China, the USA, India and Russia. Anyone claiming otherwise is in denial of reality.

    Singing praise of solar- and wind-generated electricity is apparently a “must” in the field of Climate Alarmism. The corollary is apparently calling anyone who disagrees with your claims “anti-science”. LoL. The loudest protagonists of Climate Alarmism left the scientific method decades ago.

    If the atmosphere-ocean system were in fact warming due to human activities (ostensibly caused by the increase in atmospheric GHG concentration), the global mean sea level would by definition manifest a sustained, long-term acceleration signal. Instead, the long-term sea level rise rate is linear. Thus, there is no human-caused global warming signature, despite exhortations by Jim Hansen, Michael Mann and the United Nations.

    So-called “climate goals” are pseudo-targets conjured up by activists and eagerly supported by UN bureaucrats, anxious to replenish their open palms with others’ money. In a post-Coronavirus economy, funding for pseudo-problems will dry up in a heartbeat.

    Climate Alarmism has peaked. It’s definitely in bear market territory now, despite the Greta phenomenon of 2019. Capable individuals will begin to find employment elsewhere. The remaining doomsday-mongers can beat their drums and publish their articles, but the rest of us have real-world problems to address. No offense, but you people are a waste of time, space and money. Get a real job. We’re tired of your neo-malthusian whining. Enough already.

    P.S. The proof-readers at Climate Home News should learn how to spell (see the title). Firth isn’t an ordinal number, it’s Scottish for Fjord.

    Japan just needs to declare herself India or China
    and Indian “journalists” wouldn’t have a single problem with a thousand new coal plants.
    The typical double standards and selectiv outrage.

    All those “science deniers” in Japan. JAXA? Hayabusa Program? Shin’ichirō Tomonaga? Yoichiro Nambu? To name but a few . . .

  7. patrick healy says:

    Being a bit of a poet (like Willie Shakespeare) I like making up new words. So can I borrow ‘Firth’ largest emitter for my next poom?

  8. Joe Mills says:

    It says in the article in climate news that Japan lacks ambition, really, perhaps those that wrote the article should look at themselves first, review all the climate science or perhaps they could give up their cushy oil dependant life, set the example, yeah right.

    Keep up the great work Tony.

    If the West falls, it’s because of those rats who can’t swim after setting the ship alight. To that, I say good riddance as Africa and Asia (including Russia) become the new superpower as they maintain the tradition of reason the West once prized. I’m still unsure about Latin America.

    Thanks very much for this info. This is fantastic. Lets face it the Globalists / Eugenist like Bill Gates don’t want “Yellow skin ” people to survive anyway!!!

    Thanks for doing such a good, precise, and with sources, informative work.

    Science denial? What’s that? If the science of MannMade Climate change is so solid, let’s hear the public debate before we level criticism.

  13. Joel says:

    I notice it’s from Climate Ho.com. Don’t trust those Climate Hos.

    Isaac Asimov died OTD in 1992. This quotation from 1980 holds up:

    “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States…. [It is] nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’”

    • Disillusioned says:

      “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”

      ― Ronald Reagan

  15. Gamecock says:

    I will now end all my arguments with ‘especially as Covid-19 engulfs the planet.’
