Japan Scaling Back on Gas Emissions Goal

Ad Feedback

Japan is scaling back drastically on its goal for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Their original plan to battle climate change was to reduce emissions by 25 percent from 1990s levels.  However, the Japanese government says that goal was unrealistic and "completely baseless."

The new target is to make a 3.8 percent cut from their 2005 levels by 2020.  The drastic changes could complicate efforts to reach a global climate change pact.

Japan is shifting back toward reliance on coal, oil and gas for power after its nuclear tsunami disaster.
