Quotes

"Fukushima is not under control, and I don’t see logic in Japan exporting nuclear plants to Turkey or India. Who is going to take the responsibility when an accident occur in these countries" a Japanese citizen said
"The food the evacuees eat and the clothes they wear are different," said Hiroshi Watahiki, 56, a chiropractor in Iwaki. "They can afford it from their compensation funds. They have time and money to go gambling since they're not working."
Obama Draws Fire —by ClimateDenierRoundup : "A New York Times story describes President Obama's efforts to make meaningful international progress on climate change despite a contrarian Congress. The article explains how Obama's climate negotiators are trying to build off the 1992 UNFCCC to craft a hybrid agreement that is 'politically' rather than 'legally binding' so as to avoid the requirement that a legally binding treaty be ratified by Congress. Deniers, predictably, are upset about this. Breitbart has a piece calling Obama the 'Al Capone of climate change' who is launching an 'assault on democracy, the Constitution and the US Economy,' meanwhile others are trotting out the usual myths saying climate change is a job killing communist hoax. Again, this is in reference to a potential agreement where the primary enforcement method would be embarrassment; hardly mutually assured destruction. The administration has also clarified that it's premature to speculate on what type of agreement might arise, and that it would consult with Congress regardless of the outcome."
