Japan urges to halve emission by 2050

Japan has proposed a successor to the Kyoto Protocol and urged the world to halve the greenhouse gas emission by the year 2050.

Ahead of the Group of Eight summit in Germany, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe mooted the proposal he hopes would win over major polluting countries like the US and China

In the battle against global warming, Abe also urged Japan and other countries to help poor countries adopt eco-friendly technology.

Abe said

Now is the time we must act. Otherwise how could we hold ourselves accountable to our future generations?

Japan will vigorously call on countries around the world to reach an international consensus on the long-term goal of halving emissions by 2050 and the steps for achieving it.

Japan’s concern is all the more understandable, considering the fact that the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012. The US and Australia have refused to be part of the treaty.

In such a scenario, Japan mulls a new treaty where all nations would join hands to reduce 50 percent emissions by 2050.
