Instead of discouraging the use of coal, Japan is increasing its number of coal-fired power plants by 35 percent.
Data from the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) clearly indicates that there has been no significant deviation in the monthly average temperature between 1998 and 2018.
Apparently based on that knowledge, Prime Minister Shinzō Abe has sanctioned the addition of 35 new coal power plants to the 100 currently operational.
Since no sane country would want to reduce its energy supplies when average temperatures are declining, I think Abe is responding wisely to the new climate reality.
