Japan CO2 target by 2020_November 2013.docx

Version 1

    LE MONDE _ November,15 2013

    The official recognition by Japanese authorities that they will not meet their initial target of reducing CO2 emissions down by 25% in 30 years (1990-2020), but only ... up to 3% (which means a reduction of 3.8% over the 2005-2020 period).

    Fukushima catastrophe has of course an important impact (see article), but some maths show that it must not be the only reason.
