What's going on in Japan? (No.25)

Japan is not seeking an exemption from its Kyoto Protocol pledges to cut greenhouse gases despite the effect on power supplies of last month's earthquake and tsunami, a government official said on Tuesday. Tokyo has not said explicitly that it will consider backing away from its longer-term target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020 from 1990 levels. But the government's revision of energy policy in light of the Fukushima crisis could pave the way for a review of its 2020 emission reduction target. Japan is the world's third-biggest operator of nuclear power plants after the United States and France, and before the quake it met 30 percent of power demand with nuclear reactors. The loss of TEPCO's two Fukushima plants alone reduces Japan's total power capacity by about 4 percent.
