Propaganda and realitat are usually on war fusion. In terms of environmental and climate protection, this also applies to Japan. Japan’s Minister Prosident Shinzo ABE, for example, makes its host for the G20 summit to present his country as a pioneer of sustainability.
If the heads of state and government of the 20 leading industrial and thresholdlanders meet on Friday and Saturday in Osaka, environmental and climate ies are one of their four main languages. In addition, ABE Dafur advertises to build a hydrogen economy. For this he was commissioned by the International Energy Agency, the hydrogen sees this time before the breakthrough.
No milestone for climate change
He also presents Japan’s plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a milestone in climate protection…, Oh no, a milestone is not the plan, but rather a climate-political revelation. It starts with that Japan prefixed its plan only now.
Worse, however, is that the government has not used the time gain to work out especially ambitious goals. The opposite is the case: Japan’s plan is "highest inadequate", If the alerts should be cranked to two, let alone 1.5 degrees, judge the three institutes the "Climate Action Tracker" operate.
It starts with the energy mix. Japan simply describes his energy strategy that sets massively on atomic and coal-fired power plants for a high base load. For 2030, the government divides 20 to 22 percent atom and 26 percent coal flow. The rest is distributed to gas (27 percent), OL (3 percent) and renewable energies (22 to 24 percent).
"As early as possible"
Japan’s Klimaplan does not look at the coal streaming rapidly. Instead, the government has only decided to have the net exhibition of greenhouse gases "so breakfast as possible in the second half of the 21. Century" to reach.
But not even the medium-term goals are very ambitious. By 2030 Japan wants to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 26 percent. However, the government agreed as a reference year when emissions reached the sad high point after the shutdown of all nuclear power plants.
The retractable behavior surprises me again and again. Finally, most industrial centers of the country are located at the Kuste. But the government is apparently not willing to prescribe the company’s hard emission targets, but wants to do it all lobbies right. In doing so, Japan is likely to be better able to help the world in an energy transition than most other countries in the world with its high innovative strength and the wide basis of technology companies.
