Although Japan has long been perceived as laggardly in its reluctance to face up to environmental problems, this viewpoint may be overly simplistic. Over the past decade, the government has taken steps to address the problem of global warming--adopting policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and participating in efforts to devise a unified international strategy for dealing with the issue. Akio Morishima, chairman of Japan's Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, traces the history of the international initiatives to combat climate change and describes how Japan came to take a leading role in the debate. The author laments the US withdrawal from the Kyoto Protocol and the on-going bickering among the developed nations, and expresses his hope that all the world' nations can transcend narrow self-interest and put the future of the planet first.
