Japan to boost trilateral cooperation on green energy

23 May 2011

Two months on from the natural disasters that ravaged Japan’s infrastructure and economy, its government has said it is determined to plough forward with efforts in the field of sustainable development through trilateral cooperation.

The country has committed to promote the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency to reach sustainable growth in the country as it rebuilds itself, officials said in a statement on Sunday.

Its officials have pledged to strengthen trilateral cooperation on tackling global environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss and regional issues such as acid deposition between Japan, China and Korea.

The three countries are planning to instill a trilateral investment framework that will foment cooperation in rebuilding the country’s economy, and have put energy security jointly on the top of the agenda with food safety as key topics on which to build dialogues. Japan’s officials said they have accelerated cooperative efforts to initiate preparatory work on a circular economy model concerning sustainable development between the three countries.

The three countries said they will begin research or consultation on sustainable growth including renewable energy and energy efficiency imminently, expressing commitments in both the medium and long term.

The collaboration of the three countries will see them promote policies and programmes to advance renewable energy technology and energy efficiency through existing international frameworks. Japan, in particular, will host a Green Technology Forum that will spur science and technology cooperation through aiming to share the research achievements of scientists and boost networking.

The three countries said they are committed to helping achieve a ‘successful’ outcome at the upcoming United Nations conference in South Africa later this year, noting the importance of establishing a framework to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of low carbon efforts.

A majority of large publicly-listed pure play clean technology companies in late 2009 and 2010 were centred in the Asia Pacific region, according to a recent Ernst and Young study. China boasts the greatest share of the green collar industry, perhaps reflecting the region’s attractiveness in the manufacturing sector, while Japanese companies are also on the radar for pursuing green energy efforts.

Despite the country fearing that its natural disasters this March had led to potential losses of up to ¥25tn, the World-SLI semiconductor index recently revealed that Japan’s semiconductor industry – one of the world’s most prominent – made larger gains during the month than in previous months as manufacturing bases avoided the worst hit areas.

    The Global Warming Conspiracy (July-1983)
    Debate

    Green house gases has nothing to do with global warming, read the explanation below. The real cause for global warming is the earth’s orbit around the sun is decaying. Green house gases makes lots of sense in summer, but makes no sense in winter. If something don’t makes sense it generally not true. The orbital decay theory makes sense in summer, and winter seasons. Crude oil, and natural gas is the life blood (fuel)of this planet, and its extraction from this planet is causing global warming. Please read my blog at: orbital-decay1.blogsopt.com for more details.

    In summer there is enough irradiance (heat) from the sun for green house gases to trap. The sun’s irradiance is trap, causing the surface temperature on this planet to rise, just like in an actual green house. In summer the transparent walls of a green house allows the irradiance from the sun to enter into the green house, and trap the heat. The results is a temperature rise within the green house. In winter the green house only receives sun light, and none of the sun’s irradiance, so it don’t get hot in the green house in winter.

    In winter the green house gas theory makes absolutely no sense, because there’s not suppose to be enough irradiance from the sun for any green house gases to trap in winter. The sun is over the opposite hemisphere, so why are the winter getting warmer? The hemisphere in its summer reason receives the sun’s irradiance, and light. The hemisphere in its winter season receives only sun light..

    The warmer winter temperatures are spawning winter tornadoes, winter floods, instead of snow, and snow storms accompanied by thunder, and light. It suppose the be too cold for the development of these phenomenon. As the earth moves closer to the sun the winter will gradually recede, and in the distant future there will be no more winters. In Houston, Texas (latitude 29.77 degrees-north) the winters are sunny,and warm. The cold weather is setting in later into the season. During the months of December, and January we wear t-shirts, short pants, and sandals. Houston is having very unusual weather. What does green house gases have to do with sunny warm winters? I notice you green house gas theorist never talk about the warm winters we are having, because you can’t explain why the winter are getting warmer on average. Green house gas theorists can’t use the green house gas theory to explain the higher, than normal temperatures in winter, the explanation wouldn’t make sense.
