Abstract:

Climate change is affecting economics, lifestyles, culture and societies around the world. In Japan average temperatures have risen higher than the average global figure, and ramifications are seen in plant and animal life. Analysis of the consequences of global warming was reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in Paris in 2007. The international community must begin renewed international cooperation as the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol concludes in 2012. The basic mechanism must improve on the framework of the Kyoto Protocol. Japan, with scarce natural resources, must establish energy security and devise an overall policy in its aim to become a low carbon society.
