Japanese translation

 Japanese Cover Skeptics Handbook Image

Yet another victory for grassroots action. Here is the first Asian language translation of The Skeptics Handbook.

Email it to all your Japanese friends!

The Japanese translation has been provided by the International Access Corporation (IAC), a research and consulting company specializing in energy sector issues and headed by nuclear engineer, Tomohiro Yuki.  As a long term skeptic of the man-made climate change theory, Mr. Yuki believes that this publication will be welcomed by the people and policymakers in Japan who are increasingly demanding a more balanced debate about climate change.

I hear that Mr Yuki is very well connected in science, government, business and media circles in Japan.  He has been an active global-warming skeptic over the last 2-3 years and has amassed a large audience for his emails.

I also hear that,  in spite of Japan’s public commitment to climate change regulation,  in private conversations with policy makers, apparently real doubts are starting to be expressed. (That was even before the ClimateGate revelations.)

With Copenhagen a few days away this is the perfect time to spread copies of the Japanese translation especially for the bureaucrats sitting on the fence.

    I also hear that, in spite of Japan’s public commitment to climate change regulation, in private conversations with policy makers, apparently real doubts are starting to be expressed. (That was even before the ClimateGate revelations.)

    This is entirely understandable. Japan does possess any of its own fossil fuel sources and must import all of it for domestic consumption. If cap-and-trade is implemented on a global scale, Japan might as well slap a price increase on everything in the country. I wonder why Lefties everywhere feel they need to jump off a cliff because the Lefties in the West says jump along with them.

    It’s funny how the right loves to call climate change believers alarmists, etc but they still would have us believe all muslims want to kill us. Or all socialists want to make us poor. Double standards no? I think a cleaner planet for our children is a good thing. To write a blog such as this is at best misleading and at worse dangerous.

    Put it this way, would rather live in a sustainable, clean, tidy and pleasant house or a rancid, disintegrating, messy and smelly one? Taking climate change denying to this extreme is just contrarism and nimby-ism on a worldwide scale. And it’s notable it’s older people like Joanna with nothing to lose but their comfortable retirements who shout against it the loudest.

    “To write a blog such as this is at best misleading and at worse dangerous.”

    If I’m scaring people who can’t reason, I know I’m achieving something. Thanks! High praise indeed.

    Is it possible to be a global-nimby? Would that be a nomp – “not on my planet”? Could it make sense in any context?

    “… older people like Joanna [sic]…” My goodness, how young would you have to be to think of Joanne as an older person close to retirement?

    Obviously young enough to confuse climate change with pollution, and naive inexperienced enough to think that the planet is “rancid, disintegrating, messy and smelly”.

    Been out of the CBD at all, jo?

    I would be happy to translate the handbook into Chinese (both simplified and traditional characters) in exchange for tips on how to best distribute it. Reply here, pls.

    A magnificent job!. A spanish translation needed of this global scam. In south american countries global warming/climate change is currently being promoted bu the Scotia Bank (Golman Sachs group).
    There are other areas of science being anatemized, like Hans Alfven´s Plasma Universe; see:
