    Japan? Is that anywhere near Norway? Since it’s NIMBY, I’m not going to pay it much attention—-it’s college football day anyway, and like all good ‘Muricans, one must pay attention to what’s really important. (Or go shopping).

    • Brent Jensen-Schmidt Says:

      Shopping IS important! It keeps the developed world economy strong. Geez, Where are your priorities, SHTF will not happen today.

      • Keith Omelvena Says:

        Shame the planet has to be strip mined, to supply all that useless junk the shopper cult have been trained to believe they “must have”, as part of its’ journey to the landfill. But I guess extinction is just the price of a strong economy?

    The most important story is…Hong Kong’s desperate fight for democracy…no, Brexit…no, Tokyo typhoon…, no, abandonment of Kurds to slaughter by Turks…no, London climate protests… no, impeachment investigation… no, caging of immigrant children… no, oil war between Saudi Arabia and Iran… no, LA wildfire… no, Iraqi protests…

    Time for a drink.

    I remember following the awesome story of Tokyo flood prevention, with Cathedral like chambers below. Just wonder how that’s working out in these hours of severe testing.

    “An intricate system of dams, levees and tunnels defends the Japan’s capital. Will it be able to cope with climate change?”

    Purple skies, sounds like a rock song title – but apparently they occur from nature, during fierce storms….

    As hundreds of thousands of people were ordered to evacuate, residents posted images of the bright purple and pink sky on social media.
