• Scientists from Japan, other countries warn against coal-fired plants


    A group of 27 international scientists including two from Japan on Monday issued a statement saying that building coal-fired power plants without carbon capture and storage systems runs counter to the fight against global warming.

    The statement was unveiled at the ongoing U.N. climate talks in Warsaw, the Polish capital that is also hosting the World Coal Association’s meeting of coal industry officials from around the world for two days through Tuesday.

    Among the 27 scholars are Shuzo Nishioka, a research advisor at the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, and Mikiko Kainuma, a fellow at the National Institute for Environmental Studies, both from Japan. PNA
