Abstract:

Our propensity to emit damaging gases has created a dangerously hot earth and it is imperative that we reduce our emission of carbon dioxide. In this article, Yasuko Kameyama, senior researcher at the National Institute for Environmental Studies, examines the international negotiations that have taken place on global warming from 1990 to 2001, focussing on the events leading up to the 1997 Kyoto Conference. In 2001, the US created a furor when it chose to opt-out of the Kyoto Protocol. Despite this set back, Kameyama suggests that this may present Japan with the opportunity to break free from its past mediator role between the US and the EU, and take the lead on environmental matters.
