New Japanese government to wreck economy

Unlike the previous government, which was marginally more sceptical of the AGW hype, the incoming one appears to have fallen for the whole thing, and is advocating huge cuts in emissions by 2020.
Japan's next prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama, yesterday vowed that his incoming centre-left government would pursue a greenhouse gas reduction target of 25 per cent from 1990 levels by 2020. [Note that they are using 1990 as a baseline, meaning the 25% reduction is far more than that when compared to 2000 levels - Ed]

The new target is far more ambitious than the 8 per cent reduction advocated by the outgoing conservative government of Prime Minister Taro Aso, which lost parliamentary elections last week.

"As a mid-term goal, we aim at a 25 per cent reduction by 2020 from 1990, based on the levels demanded by science to stop global warming," said Mr Hatoyama, who is scheduled to take over as prime minister on September 16.

"Our nation will strongly call on major countries around the world to set aggressive goals," said Mr Hatoyama, 62, who last week suggested Japan would seek a greater voice in international diplomacy.

What is it with the Left and climate alarmism? Is it because the Left loves taxing and regulating people out of existence and AGW is the best way to achieve that goal by the back door? You decide. All I know is that China must be rubbing its hands with glee, as yet more of Japan's already depleted electronics industry will be heading their way in the near futureā€¦

  • This has nothing to do with the left or alarmists. Among scientists there is no longer any debate. All scientists now agree that global warming is a fact. The only question left now is what to do about it. We can just stick our head in the sand like the author Mr. Simon appears to be doing, or acknowledge that there is more to life than massive profits for the elites of the world and that maybe we should come together as genuine people and save our planet for ourselves and for future generations. I hope this isn't to reasonable and sane for this humorous and satirical blog.

  • "All scientists now agree that global warming is a fact" - true, since the planet is warming slowly since the Little Ice Age (and if you ignore the last 8 - 10 years of cooling). All scientists agree on the cause - not true. And that's what the whole argument is about.

    Unfortunately, it is the general public who stick their heads in the sand, brainwashed by everything the media and governments tell them. The public are smart enough to reach their own conclusions based on the evidence - except we only ever hear one side of that evidence.
