Man,doesn't he know that he has just won a Ignoble award.

Japan......isn't a shining light to the fledgling Asian countries any longer.

Japan is the economy and society you really don't really want to be anymore.

Japan is the anthesis of the place you want to be.

Sure, sure, sure - all Japanese are gonna give up the cars and their gas stoves and their kerosene heaters and gas heated baths. Dream on boy, dream on.

That's unlikely, given that he hasn't won one.

You may be referring to Japan's "fossil" award.

So long as you don't raise my taxes, pledge all you want!

Kishida could start us off by pledging not to get on a plane again….

If you have to be persuaded, lied to, incentivized, coerced, bullied, socially shamed, guilt tripped, threatened, punished and criminalized by "science", and is considered necessary to gain your compliance, then you can be absolutely certain that what is being promoted is not in your best interest and is not science.

More talk, zero action.

Oh no please not the carbon mumbo jumbo bandwagon. This along with SDGs is all a scam.

Cleaner, more efficient energy yes please. But we are a long long way from replacing fossil fuels.

Look at Germany, reliant on gas and needing to start up their old dirty coal plants.

Unless he plans to fire up the nuclear reactors again?

Says the leader of the country that gets a Fossil Award every year.

Great initiative Kishida, this is important, and great to see a democratic country will lead the way as it will be more trustworthy.

Kishida pledges that 

Is there anyone, anywhere buying this individual’s word at all?

anything he ever says, never gets done.

might as well just say he’ll end world hunger and create world peace already.

what’s the difference? It’s all

just hot air coming out of his throat.

But they are expanding militarily and undertaking deals with all kinds of players. How is that going to reduce carbon output?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

The US military is one of the largest polluters in the world and is exempt from EPA regulations. It's likely JSDF work the same dirty way in Japan.

I am in Thailand right now, all I can see is a vast swathe of old mopeds, burning oil, vintage busses, would be better of housing chickens, although there are quite a lot of new cars around, but out in the country side there is still those old clanking two stroke engine s pulling some sort of contraption around stacked up with veg, ( with no lights) will any of this cash go to help scrap or replace these carts? And mopeds? Thailand is still struggling with people still burning rubbish everyday and farmers still burn stubble after the sugar cane has been collected, and that brings us into Myanmar they are as bad, not only have you got to change the transport, but you've got to change a ingrained attitude to

Hope global leaders like Kishida sama can control carbon emission for some years

But it was already clear that no way to stop.

mankind used to relay on plastic & fuels for their convince.

Simple example : Due to Navigation maps it is convenient to to travel, so without any need weekends people will travel. no way to stop.

convenience future generations in great trouble.

no way to stop upcoming disasters due to Human errors for their convenience.

That's surely near the maximum possible punishment for the country due to bad election or support rate surveys and the cancelation of those nice hidden party events.

Sort out your own country first, that's what the people pay you for!

"Hey guys, Joe send me to tell you, no more burn fossil fuels"..

LOL!!..

The countries of Asia could help a lot by ending their use of coal.
