On the Other Hand

Item #d98oct46

On Oct. 19, Yomiuri Shimbun reported that Japan’s CO2 emissions in 2010 will be about 14% higher than in 1990, failing to attain its target of keeping emissions to the 1990 level. This estimate was made by the Central Research Institute of the Electric Power Industry. Despite the nation’s flagging financial system, its aging society, and the sluggish Asian economy, the Institute estimated that Japan would be able to attain a real average annual economic growth rate of 1.6% by 2010, but average energy consumption would increase by an annual 0.6%, energy-saving measures notwithstanding. To curb emissions, the Institute urged reinforcement of energy-saving measures and increasing nuclear power generation.
