Japan's greenhouse gas emissions hit a record low in the year through March 2021, marking the seventh consecutive year of decline, the Environment Ministry said Friday.

With carbon taxation and offsets the population of Japan should be seeing dividends any day now. Right?

Offshoring polluting industries in the neighbouring countries is green washing.

Its good that they're going down. Its a bit sneaky to use 2013 as a base year, because they were very high that year after all the nuke plants were shut down after Fukushima and electricity switched to FF.

Renewable energy accounted for 19.8 percent of electric power generation of one trillion kilowatt-hours in 2020-21, up 1.6 percentage points from the previous year.

Nuclear energy fell 2.3 percentage points to 3.9 percent, while thermal power made up 76.3 percent, up 0.7 percentage points, industry ministry data showed.

76.3 % thermal ..Still woeful .

I would say this is complete lies and false information.

Japan still incinerates household waste in towers in residential areas .

Not to mention the entire country everyday everywhere there's cigarette smoking.

I sincerely doubt a decrease in carbon emissions 7 years consecutively.

Trying to make Japan look environmentally conscious.

Lets dump more radioactive materials into the ocean its safe.
