In less than 20 years, Japan has positioned itself in the frontline of the fight against climate change in the world. This was mainly when it assisted to broker the Kyoto Protocol. The G20 nations adopted the Kyoto Protocol in order to address issues of climate change around the globe. Japan was one of the nations that adopted the protocol, a legally binding deal on climate change. Through this deal, Japan was supposed to cut down its emission of greenhouse gases by about 5 percent. In this case, Japan was forced to engage in nuclear energy production. This was a key form of energy that would reduce the release of carbon dioxide in the environment. The nation gained a high reputation for its efforts to address global climate change. However, the Fukushima disaster in 2011 came to define the energy policies in Japan with its impacts on the efforts to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide. The disaster had a huge impact on the emission reduction target in Japan both politically and practically. It shuttered the citizens’ faith in the safety myths surrounding nuclear sources of energy. There are various differences and comparisons surrounding the environmental policy in Japan before and after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Over the years, climate politics has been affected by the Fukushima disaster.
