People Are Being Urged To Reduce the Impact of Emissions as Temperatures Rise in Japan and Summer Approaches

Cherry blossoms are blooming earlier than ever before, with the chiffon-pink that has traditionally heralded spring for the country appearing only two weeks into March.

On March 22, temperatures in Osaka reached a record high of 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit).

Tottori, in the southwest, reached 25.8 degrees Celsius (78 degrees Fahrenheit) on the same day, the highest in 140 years, according to climatologist Maximiliano Herrera.

In March, the average temperature in Tottori is 12 degrees Celsius (54 degrees Fahrenheit).

certain community buildings as shelters, such as air-conditioned libraries. This type of national-level law is novel in Japan.

Despite the country's advanced economy, some people cannot afford air conditioning, particularly in hotter areas.

Because of the recent extreme heat, schools in northern Japan, such as Nagano, have installed air conditioning.

Michio Kawamiya, director of the Research Center for Environmental Modeling and Application, and his colleagues study Japan's rising temperatures and their effects on people.

Among their findings: cherry blossoms have bloomed one day earlier on average every decade since 1953. The color of maple leaves has changed 2.8 days slower per decade.

Even though the threat of heavy snowfall remains, the risk of typhoons has increased and the amount of snowfall has decreased.

Japan has made some progress in reducing its use of fossil fuels, but it remains the world's sixth-largest emitter.

Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011, Japan shut down nuclear generation and, unfortunately for the climate, invested in new coal plants as well as imported oil and gas to keep its grid operational.

Since then, nuclear power plants have been gradually restarted.

        These climate change effects are not peculiar to Japan, everyone should be involved in reducing their contribution to the change and restoring the climate back to where its supposed to be.
