1. My Most Favorite Story
As introduced, it is the story of Jonah in the King James Version of the Bible:
Jon 1:1 - Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
Jon 1:2 - Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.
Jon 1:3 - But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
Jon 1:4 - But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
Jon 1:5 - Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.
Jon 1:6 - So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not.
Jon 1:7 - And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.
Jon 1:8 - Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and whence comest thou? what is thy country? and of what people art thou?
Jon 1:9 - And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land.
Jon 1:10 - Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him. Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them.
Jon 1:11 - Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto thee, that the sea may be calm unto us? for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous.
Jon 1:12 - And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you.
Jon 1:13 - Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.
Jon 1:14 - Wherefore they cried unto the LORD, and said, We beseech thee, O LORD, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O LORD, hast done as it pleased thee.
Jon 1:15 - So they look up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.
Jon 1:16 - Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows.
Jon 1:17 - Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights...
2. My Favorite Song
I have to confess that I once heard somebody saying that Mr. Charles Aznavour was a nice singer.
So, I secretly bought a music album with his songs in to find his way of singing very rich and deep in romantic emotion of a middle-aged French man.
3. My Favorite Country
I really think I am very lucky to be born in Japan.
I must not have been born in sinful Europe or North America; I must not have been born in terrible Africa and South Asia; I must not have been born in the Islamic world so demanding; and I must not have been born in China and other regions once fully or halfway colonized by Europeans.
Yes, I must have been and was surely born in Japan, the nation of Mt. Fuji and cherry blossoms and with a potential to honor and lead Asia and mankind.
4. My Favorite Party in Japan
Japanese politics has been dominated so far virtually by the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), a tested and tried friend of the US Government.
Generally speaking, LDP's power base has been local people living in rural or rice-producing areas, or more roughly speaking, farmers and their direct descendants or neighbors but not modern city workers in Osaka, Nagoya, or Tokyo.
As LDP is so strongly linked with traditions, traditional values, and traditional human-relations, I suppose they can easily find attractive female candidates for election, since this is Japan.
On the other hand, the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) can embrace more venture-minded politicians, though the party includes old-fashioned conservatives and labor-union experts.
So, I cannot help but like to pay attentions to female LDP lawmakers as well as forward-looking DPJ lawmakers or independents for fairness.
However, critics in Japan like to use the terms such as politicians steeped in neo-liberal reform (for freer economy) or neo-conservatism (for traditional nationalism), or otherwise enemies of free economy or nationalism, especially in a case leftists if not opportunists.
But, my measure is related to how much a Japanese politician understands Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, or otherwise original Buddhism, even sacrificing their habitual practices related to free economy and nationalism or otherwise Western ideologies.
It is because it is more than 60 years after World War II, 140 years after the Meiji Restoration, and 400 years since the completion of the Edo Castle or the present Imperial Palace, and 800 years since the beginning of the first samurai regime in Kamakura.
And yet, the glorious party in the 21st century is to be so proven in both Japan and the U.S.
(That is why I do not blame you, if you run away from a holy mission, love three-starry cuisine in Paris or Tokyo, get associated with families of leaders of LDP, DPJ, US Republicans, or US Democrats, or otherwise run for election to defeat an incumbent prime minister like the case in Australia, even if you are not a member of a royal family or a friend of a prince of the Church in this worldly world.)

"A Blue, Blue Blue Blue Xmas"
("Bleu, bleu de Noël")
[Updated on Nov. 30, 2011]
Yesterday, the BBC radio broadcasting on the Internet reported on calling of a Chinese naval ship at a Japanese port.
They are interested in how the two countries will develop their ties over the complicated and strangled memory of the past, since such a port call by a Chinese naval ship is the first since the establishment of the People's Republic of China.
Yet, I am interested in how many Chinese elites as well as poor Chinese are viewing this blog EEE Reporter.
* * *
A month ago or so, the Chinese Communist Party introduced new politburo standing committee members.
The China's supreme commanding team now includes two new rising figures: Mr. Li Keqiang (Ri-Koku-Kyou in Japanese pronunciation of the kanji letters) and Mr. Xi Jinping (Shu-Kin-Pei in Japanese).
Interestingly, Mr. Katusya Okada, one of leaders of the Democratic Party of Japan, wrote then in his blog that he has met Mr. Li Keqiang several times in this decade.
According to the Japanese Parliament member Mr. Okada, Mr. Li looks like growing to be a leader of larger caliber along with his promotion in the Chinese Communist Party.
( http://katsuya.weblogs.jp/blog/2007/10/post_f737.html#more )
* * *
But more interestingly, a certain Japanese scholar also showed his concern about the new two Chinese top leaders on his blog mainly discussing his concern with global warming and CO2.
He took note of the fact that Mr. Li Keqiang has an arts background (namely law, economics, philosophy, etc.) though other eight members of the politburo standing committee have a science background.
But, it is Mr. Xi Jinping that took more attention from the Japanese scholar, since the scholar and Mr. Xi seemed to share one memory, though without a direct link, on a certain prefecture of the Shaanxi Province of the Chinese mainland.
Mr. Xi, when he was a student, was ordered to go and work in a certain local village in the prefecture of the Province as part of the Rustication Movement or the Down to the Countryside Movement ("Ka-ho" in Japanese) which had been vehemently driven by Mao Tse-tung for the purpose of humbling elite youths in big cities and universities and thus making them obedient to the power, namely, Mao Tse-tung.
The Japanese scholar visited a village in the province on the Ocher Plateau in 2003 for his academic survey on reforestation policy in China. He however happened to meet an old farmer who happened to talk about a young man who had come to the village as part of Rustication Movement decades ago and thus suffered severe local life like all the other students all over China from late 1960's to early 1970's under the Rustication policy of the Party.
The old farmer said that the young man, nonetheless, had conquered the hardship and learnt agriculture and wisdom in the village to be an exemplary youth respected by everybody in the village.
But, the young man returned to Beijing as the political situation changed in the Chinese Communist Party; yet, people in the village heard nothing from him since.
The Japanese scholar wrote in his blog that he checked the precise location of the village Mr. Xi Jinping had worked hard decades ago to find that the village the scholar visited for research recently was different, since the prefecture the village belongs to has more than 300 villages.
* * *
It might be one of big surprises and mysteries in history for you, especially if learning in the U.S. or Europe or the Islamic world, that Japan and China would not tie up to encounter aggression and invasion by Western Powers, such as Russia and the U.K., to protect the glory of East Asia in the 19th century and the 20th century.
Therefore, the divine providence must have specified that China had to introduce a specific form of Judaism, namely Marxism, while Japan had to introduce a specific form of Christianity, namely an American style of Democracy, for each to develop and stabilize its society and civilization or become a true regional and global leader.
In this context, the God seems to be sterner to China and more benevolent to Japan, since China is conditioned to be anchored by a harsh and extreme political system, that is, Communism-based administration, for the cruel nature of its past history.
* * *
The Rustication Movement or the Down to the Countryside Movement is not a traditional Chinese concept, though it seems to have stringently trained Chinese youths of the era in the manner no Japanese or American politicians and elites have experienced except those who have been directly engaged in the Vietnam War or the Iraq/Afghan War or any other tough mission the God has posed.
("Any young elite should go to a local village to be sternly treated as a useless assistant to local farmers living in poor conditions. Then, they will appreciate the power that can give them a chance to live in a big city and study in a university to be the elite of the nation." This is however an aim of Mao Tse-tung.)
Now, Jesus Christ came down to the human world 2000 years ago as if He had ordered Himself to accept the holy rustication, probably due to a certain urgent condition, most probably such as the shadow of the Roman Empire decisively extending to Palestine at the time, namely 30 years after the era of Caesar and Cleopatra.
Accordingly, if you are ordered so by the God, you had better accept it, since it is a divine providence regardless of your present stage of activities for whatever purpose.
And, you may later become a fully tried and tested leader in your country, whether it is the U.S. or Japan.
(A certain stone, namely the material of an LED lamp, emits light when an electric voltage is applied while diamond is useless in this respect.
Indeed, if you discover a stone which emits light according to a change in the ambient temperature, you will win the Nobel Prize and become a super-rich man/woman.
Truly, if you discover a stone that spontaneously starts to glow when the surrounding environment gets dark and darker, you will also win the Nobel Prize and become a super-rich man/woman.
In future, Paris, New York, and Tokyo may be shining with a new type of solid-state lamps we will have discovered together, for whatever consequences, though I am now going to have...)

"Maybe Baby You Are Blue"
("Vous êtes peut-être bébé bleu")
The Japanese news agency JIJI has reported that some American politicians strongly associated with the Bush Administration were surprised by the arrest of Japan's former Vice Defense Minister Takemasa Moriya.
Every media in Japan is, of course, running after Mr. Takemasa Moriya and the Tokyo public prosecutors, interviewing Mr. Moriya at home by phone or obtaining comments from Ms. Yuriko Koike, the former Defense Minister who was strangely and severely attacked by politicians and critics when she tried to fire Mr. Moriya, for whatever reason, during her short term of office.
Every pundit and critic is also strongly focusing their argument on this once-a-decade detective incident.
But, Jesus Christ said not to blame others.
I hope that Mr. Takemasa Moriya and his wife will study the Bible in the Tokyo Detention Center so as to repent, yes, repent before God.
* * *
Rather I am interested in some comments and opinions recently expressed in the newspaper and on the Internet by Japanese critics on the meaning of independents as well as the two-party-system and the grand coalition.
First of all, as the movement toward democracy in Japan before 1945 had been insufficient due to the still dominant shadow of samurai's moral and political code of conduct, the God forced the Empire of Japan to lose the war against the U.S. in order for Japan to introduce Christian-based democracy from the United States of America after 1945.
So, I refer to some US opinions using Google without personal preference:
"..."The two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shift in policy." Quote by Georgetown Professor, Carroll Quigley from his book "Tragedy and Hope" referring to the secret network that started the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), America's true ruling establishment..." http://www.newswithviews.com/Ohara/debbie29.htm
"...Almost two-thirds of Americans consider themselves either Republicans or Democrats, and even those who say that they are independents normally have partisan leanings and exhibit high levels of partisan loyalty. For example, on average 71 percent of Democratic-leaning independents and 79 percent of Republican-leaning independents voted for their preferred party's presidential nominees in the last four presidential elections. It is estimated that only about nine percent of the Americans are "pure independents."..."
"...The two party system filters out the extreme elements. The multi-party allows the extreme, and often destabilizing, elements into the political system. It was not that long ago that the extreme Nazi party gained credibility by being brought into a German coalition government when none of the major parties could gain a clear electoral victory..."
You have to always keep in mind that there have been African Americans, in these years after 1860, who account for more than 10% of the U.S. population.
With such a minority group having a more than 10% share, the two-party system seems to some extent work well, for they will be split into two: one party including most members of the minority group and another less supporting the minority group.
If you apply this way of thinking to Japanese politics, you may however discover an interesting theory on politics.
And, Jesus Christ indicated, in my view, that if a House of a nation is split, no devils can overwhelmingly and fatally exercise their evil power and influence.
* * *
Today, I have to go out to pay for national insurance and national pension.
Indeed, there is no leisure for the poor, probably, except politics, even if you are so blue for all the horseplay being televised and reported here and there.
(My favorite motto: Believe in the God; believe in the lord!
My favorite book: Any story of a poor man/woman who is saved by the God.
My favorite movie: Akira Kurisawa's "The Hidden Fortress" because of a beautiful actress and Toshiro Mifune's extravagant fight scenes - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hidden_Fortress;
in addition, it later allowed Mr. George Lucas to dream of his success with the Star Wars.
Now, you may not be so blue, though I am still a busy man.)

(Compared with my burning vision, the splendor of Xmas is still neon, even if the Tower stands for eon...by the unidentified from Western Japan)
Shadow of the Roman Empire
(Ombre de l'Empire romain)
1. O, Oh, Champs-Elysees
It is nice to see that they are now using low-powered LEDs to deck almost all the trees on the Champs-Elysees over 2 km of its span to Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
They say that those LEDs consume only 70% of electricity that would be needed when using ordinary small electric bulbs.
I do not have a dislike of the Champs-Elysees at all, since they use LEDs.
(a picture here included is still with electric bulbs)
2. Solar Cells
Wikipedia introduced a solar cell or photovoltaic cell:
"Solar cells are manufactured in Germany, USA, Japan, China and Thailand. While technologies are constantly evolving toward higher efficiencies, those companies with large scale manufacturing technology for coating inexpensive substrates will be the lowest cost net electricity producers, even with cell efficiencies that are only in the 5–7% range."
But, in this June, Japan's Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. announced that it developed a solar cell product that can convert 22% of the energy absorbed from the sun rays into electric energy, which is the world highest conversion rate.
The new solar cell can also generate 10 to 50% more electricity per unit area than a conventional product. Sanyo will bring this product into market in 2010.
Japan's Sharp Corporation, as a maker of solar cells, shipped the largest amount of solar cells in the world even in 2006 just like in preceding six years.
Japan's Fuji Electric Systems has succeeded in developing a film type of flexible solar cells, as the world first, which can be applied to a curved surface of a wall or a vehicle.
The insufficient and biased description in Wikipedia on Japan's solar cell industry is just one example on how Americans are not fairly informed of Japan even today.
3. Ohm's Law
Wikipedia, of course, explains Ohm's Law, one of the greatest discovery of mankind:
"...the current passing through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference (i.e. voltage drop or voltage) across the two points..."
But, the German discoverer of the law, Georg Ohm, does not look like having been a happy scientist.
Although he discovered Ohm's Law in 1821, it was 1841 or so that his work was appreciated by scientific communities in France and England while Germans did not recognize importance of the formula, which might tell something deep about personality of Germans.
Anyway, his equation, V = IR, turned out to be a universal basic instrument for development of the science and society of mankind, since it can be extended to W = IV or H = IV, as I suggested in a previous report.
4. Shadow of the Roman Empire
Caesar and other Roman generals and soldiers fought harshly against then Northern Europeans living in the north of the Alps.
First their enemy was Celts. Well organized Roman troops could at last demolish the core of the Celtic force so as to prevent the establishment and maintenance of a large Celtic empire in Europe, especially in the Great Britain.
Then Germanic races encountered Romans. The fight and battles became all the more severe as Romans troops could not at last fully conquer territories in the north of the Rhine River.
This history of wars still has a long-remained influence on each European tribe.
Anglo-Saxons, part of the ancient Germanic race, were lucky that they could avoid a fatal collision with Romans as they concentrated in defending stubbornly their own home territory near Denmark in current Germany and eventually moved to the Great Britain where Celts had no more overwhelming power due to past fierce wars against Romans.
But, the mainstream of the ancient Germanic race was more seriously damaged by Roman troops. Strong strikes by Romans on ancient Germans caused even their descendants to suffer the grave aftermath for a very long time at least until 1945.
That is why Germans called their kingdom Great Roman Empire from 962 to 1806. That is also why German people were completely duped by Adolf Hitler who appealed to Germans with a magic word "the Third Reich" while pretending to be a messiah for Germans.
In this context, French are more interesting.
Contemporary French people consist of descendants of Celts, Germanic tribes, and ancient Romans who invaded ancient France but remained there even after the collapse of the Roman Empire.
Even there is a theory that some ancient Israelites left Jerusalem to the Mediterranean region of France after the fall of Jerusalem in the first century.
That is why the sound of the French language is so difficult and sophisticated enough to alleviate the grave aftermath once inflicted by Caesar and other Roman troops.
* * *
Now, descendants of Anglo-Saxons, French, Germans and even ancient Romans constitute the core of European Americans who do no look like being under any aftermath Caesar and other ancient Roman troops inflicted.
That may be why they once took too far the attack at Pearl Harbor in 1941 and probably the terror at the World Trade Center in New York in 2001.
The aftermath of the attack at Pearl Harbor eventually led to, and ended at, a US' counter-attack with unclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
But, the aftermath inflicted by the terror at the World Trade Center has not yet come to conclusion, since US troops are now at both the sides of Iran, namely Iraq and Afghanistan.
That is why I am telling you to elect somebody who can honestly study history and religion as President of the U.S. in 2008.
Also, the new President should be able to love the equation of "H = IV" and Japanese solar cells, hopefully.
(The year 2008 is full of planned events, such as US Presidential Election, Beijing Olympic Games, the G8 Summit in Japan, and completion of Iran's nuclear weapons development scheme as well as the testing time for the value of dollar and US credit systems.
You, good girls, had better find somebody who can invent a new type of solar cells or LED lamps, since I am highly interested in H = IV.
Truly, Paris is not burning but shining just like in 1940's.)

Gifts to Santa Claus
(Les cadeaux au Père Noël)
They in a midnight TV news report said it would take two-year training to be qualified nowadays as a Santa Claus or a Saint Nicholas, a tutelary saint of girls and boys in Europe.
Jesus Christ said to be always alert to fake or bogus messiahs and prophets.
Indeed, once Adolf Hitler was regarded as a kind of Germanic messiahs and Saddam Hussein as a kind of warrior prophets.
Truly, I am not testing any Santa Claus but I like to offer the following as my gift to him.
1. Adolf Hitler
It was a big mistake that the Empire of Japan blindly trusted Hitler and his company before 1941, the year of the attack on Pearl Harbor as a manly war of military vs. military that is expected always to be on high alert over a wide ocean so as to avoid lightning strike from over the horizon.
It is especially so taking into consideration the fact that Germans helped Chinese troops illegally attack garrison troops of the Empire of Japan lawfully stationed around Shanghai, then an international prosperous city where the Empire of Japan had legitimate right to protect Japanese as well as Europeans and Americans, in 1930's before the Empire of Japan allied itself with Germany without knowing at all Hitler's insane plan to put an end to prosperity, peace, and survival of Israelite Europeans.
Hitler should have learnt history and religion more than Marxism. His only excuse for his dream of political power must have been justified, if he had decided to follow an emperor of the Roman Empire and thus fulfill duties to restore the traditions and glory of the ancient empire, ancient Christianity, and ancient Judaism, since Marxism is rooted in older Judaism unfortunately and partly through condensed hatred to super-rich and very rich Christians, namely capitalists.
I mean that Hitler should have advanced to Jerusalem.
He should have thought that Germanic peoples would be really glorified if he could have restored the ancient kingdom of Israelites where the Messiah emerged.
Then, as the leader of Germanic peoples, Adolf Hitler might have been praised as a real successor of emperors of the Roman Empire, since it would have meant that Hitler had given back to Israelites what a Roman Emperor unlawfully took away 1900 years ago after having killed Jesus the Messiah.
If Israelite Europeans had been all allowed to move to and live in Jerusalem under protection provided by German troops in 1930's, Hitler should have been praised so much, since he could have obtained 1000-year prosperity foundation in Europe, provided no fatal objection had been posed by Muslims there and then.
Now, German people, who were traditionally forced to live in a surrounded and framed area, without a direct exit to a vast ocean, seem to be happy enjoying a grand stage, called EU, for their vigorous activities, since they were defeated by the U.S. military in 1945.
2. Saddam Hussein
Like Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein also made a big mistake, as you know, to have provoked some Americans, though other Americans had provoked some radical Muslims including Mr. Osama bin Laden, too.
Saddam Hussein should have learnt more history and religion.
He should have tried hard to consolidate all Arab nations into one federation without relying on military forces.
He should have acted like a descendant of glorious Sumerian - Akkadian Civilization.
He as a descendant of the Civilization from which Abraham, the great ancestor of Arabs, had emerged should have talked to people in Mecca to recognize the glory of Sumerian/Akkadian Civilization and thus unite into one federation of Arab Muslims.
He must have a chance to take Iraq, Syria, Kuwait, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and other Arab Gulf nations into one federation, which should have rejoiced Allah and given a higher inspiration even to Arab radical youths who might have otherwise turned to be terrorists.
Saddam Hussein should have pondered relative merits between Islamic virtues, American democracy, and Arab-inherent stern culture since ancient days before the introduction of Islam but after the debacle and fall of the Sumerian/Akkadian Civilization.
But, now, the United States troops are working hard in a sense, no matter how many mistakes they are making on their side due to overpowering temptation of huge crude-oil reserves there, to diffuse democracy that has developed in the Christian world.
* * *
Now, you know Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein had gone, to which the U.S. military contributed.
The U.S. could be regarded as having acted like a Santa Claus in 1945 in Europe.
But, now is the U.S. acting like a Santa Claus in Iraq?
If you are real Santa Claus, you must visit Iraq and Afghanistan but not rich families in Europe and America, since it makes poor children envy them, though if you love a big and fabulous chimney, I don't blame you, for I am a humble man who, though, loves a silver boot that somehow reminded him of a happy Christmas very, very long time ago.
Indeed, great is the God or Allah!
Truly, the Messiah is Jesus!!
(There is an interesting Japanese blog that recommends people to think and write their thought on any issue in blog in just five minutes.
The owner of the blog is also practicing it.
She recently wrote about children who committed a suicide from the pain of being a victim of bullying.
The best Christmas gift to children may be hope, strength, and courage in addition to a motivation to participate in a writing training.
As for me, I am still of an old local nature and not good at talking in front of people just like a certain exceptional Japanese politician and even unlike you born in Paris, New York, or Tokyo as a gift of God.)

Global Warming and Chaos Theory
(Le réchauffement de la planète et de la théorie du chaos)
I have made a graph as below displayed based on data in "Official Energy Statistics from the U.S. Government."
(please double click the image to enlarge it)
Fig. World Total Electric Power Generation by EEE Reporter
(source: http://www.eia.doe.gov/oiaf/ieo/electricity.html )
My argument about global warming is that there is a possibility that its main factor is the accumulated effect of electric power generated by mankind and inevitably producing heat in these decades (in addition to heat caused by burning fuels, rather than simple increase in CO2 in the air).
It is just like you are using an electric heater in a closed room; and the heater never stops but increases its power for decades, though from a big glass window in the room some of generated heat can escape to the outside.
The electricity generator in the room may also produce heat while emitting CO2 and other gasses that can trap the heat so that the heat will not easily escape to the outside through the big window.
But, it must be heat itself, taking into account both the electric heater and electricity generation facilities, that is mainly raising the temperature in the room.
Put extremely, without such heat sources, the heat provided by sun rays to the room and the heat escaping through the window may be balanced over a wide range of increases in CO2 and other gasses caused by other elements except a heater and an electricity generator.
Put simply, the CO2 increase without being accompanied by any kinds of electric heaters and other heat sources on the ground may not be so threatening to mankind and global warming.
* * *
According to the theory of chaos, a butterfly in Beijing that swings its wings could cause a violent storm in the East Coast of the United States, if all the other factors are favorably fixed for the butterfly.
If the global climate follows the theory of chaos and a certain mathematical formulation, there is a chance that a butterfly in Beijing that swings its wings could cause a violent storm in the East Coast of the United States.
But, of course, it is still controversial that the global climate completely follows the Chaos Theory and a certain mathematical formulation, since nobody has ever specified such a tested and proved formulation that will probably include millions of variables, equations, and coefficients.
(Of course, a supercomputer in Japan has so far succeeded in understanding and predicting some limited part of the global weather based on certain mathematical formulations.
In addition, though it seems to be apparent that roughly speaking the global climate includes partly some effects of the Chaos Theory as one of factors, it is unlikely that a butterfly in Beijing is really dominating the weather in New York, since its swing can be simply nullified by that of another butterfly in New York in reality or virtually.
But, the increase of heat due to ever growing electric power generated by mankind cannot be countered by any other factors.
In any case, the increase in the electric power and heat generated by mankind in these decades, a sole huge swing of wings of an unseen gigantic butterfly, must be taken into consideration to the same extent as that of emission of CO2 and other gasses.
It is because if we continue to increase the amount of electric power being generated even without emission of greenhouse gases and being consumed in electric heaters, namely any kinds of electric goods, I suppose there is a strong possibility that the temperature of the earth will continue to rise, since it is tantamount of using an electric heater, even without a combustion-based electricity generator, in a room without any halt for decades regardless of emission of CO2.
* * *
There are still controversies on the cause of global warming: some solely point at CO2 and others cast doubt on CO2.
Even, some people wrongly interpret and apply the Chaos Theory to the global warming.
That is why I have presented this report: Forget about CO2, at least sometimes, and the Butterfly Effect but look at the figure showing increase in electric power generation, since it produces such heat as specified in the following well-known and basic formula of electricity:
H = I x I x R
I: electric current
R: electric resistance
(As V = IR, H = IV)
(The "C," namely the element carbon, is also the sole component of diamond.
The God might, in His glory, allow me someday to devise a method to extract carbon from CO2 and convert it all to diamond very easily.
In the case, I can get easily mega tons of diamond for any use, such as buttons of jackets poor people put on.)

Miracles on the Oceans
(Des miracles sur les océans)
The four past mountainous empires, the Spanish Empire, the British Empire, and the Empire of Japan once all prided themselves on their mighty Navies and dauntless fleets on great oceans of each dominant Age.
Now, the United States of America with imperial power has dominated the global oceans.
Yet, as I once warned, a supply vessel and an escort vessel of the Maritime Defense Forces of Japan completed its time-limited mission on the Indian Ocean to feed fuels and water to naval ships of the U.S., Pakistan, and so on for free.
They returned to home ports in Japan recently, though former Prime Minister Mr. Shinzo Abe had promised President George Bush to continue the mission, which unfortunately turned out to be one of significant burdens for the health of the then prime minister due to strong opposition from the opposition parties occupying a majority in the Upper House of the Japanese Parliament.
If incumbent Prime Minister Mr. Yasuo Fukuda succeeds to pass a low to resume the mission in the Indian Ocean, will Muslims in Pakistan and Afghanistan appreciate it?
Won't it be Japan's another commitment to the possible armed conflict between the U.S. and Iran, as the Indian Ocean is just off the coast of Iran?
US citizens as well as Muslims in Pakistan and Afghanistan should communicate their standpoints to the Japanese Government, since they are vessels of the Maritime Defense Forces of Japan.
(Muslims and Israelites work on Sundays like Jesus Christ, don't they?
It is not a shame at all for you to work even [on the Indian ocean] on Sundays, is it?)
Matthew 21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
