Japan is the latest of the world’s large economies to commit to a net-zero emissions by 2050.
 That means big reductions in fossil fuel imports. Bravo Japan!

In his first parliamentary address last Monday as the new Japanese Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga committed the country to a target of net-zero emissions by 2050.

Suga commented that “Responding to climate change is no longer a constraint on economic growth”. Absolutely right.
