Treasury subsidy system
Money to be distributed to local governments in order to support measures
and finances when the government is necessary for public interest. In addition,
in Japan the country has specified its use.
Health hazard such as vaccination is rare, if there is a health damage,
promptly relieve when a causal relationship with health damage is certified.
Besides the relief system for health damage caused by asbestos and vaccination,
there are various kinds such as relief system for drug side effects.
The garbage that occurs in human life. Household garbage may be more familiar
to you. Food waste discharged from home applies.
The garbage that is emitted in the project (company). Emissions are less
than household garbage, but they are still considered problematic. Metal
scraps and plastic discharged from companies and others apply.
The percentage that is actually recycled. By the way, the country with
the highest recycling rate in the world is Iceland (2005).
Four major pollution diseases
Sewage containing pollutants discharged from the factory.
Mercury is methylated compound. It was the cause of Minamata disease.
Sulfurous acid gas
It is a gas that has a pungent odor that is contained in automobile exhaust
gas, factory smoke, etc.
Materials that caused Itai-itai disease. Carcinogenic and harmful ones.
Basic Environment Law
Act established in 1993 for environmental conservation in Japan.
A goal is set as to how much the standard is kept in existing pollution.
A regulation stipulating the amount of harmful gas emitted from automobiles
A car with less harmful gas emissions and less load on the atmosphere.
Hybrid cars and electric cars can be mentioned. In recent years, "Fuel
Cell Vehicle" applying fuel cell has attracted attention as well.
Future of Japan
Decision making as a cabinet. The Cabinet conducts administrative administration
based on the Cabinet decision.
Unlike limited resources such as petroleum and coal, it refers to energy
that can be regenerated even if water power, wind power, sunlight, etc.
There are various kinds such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide
and so on, which affect natural ecosystems, it is said that the foundation
for the survival of mankind will fall into a dangerous situation, What
Sea level rise
It is caused by global warming, oceanic thermal expansion, glacier change,
Greenland ice sheet change, Antarctic ice sheet change and land reservoir
changes, greatly affecting the island countries such as Tuvalu What is.
Generally it is a phenomenon that occurred largely out of the usual phenomenon
that occurred up to the present. Heavy rain, wind storms, droughts, etc.
are one of them, and in principle the JMA has a phenomenon occurring at
some point in less than once in 30 years.
Ozone layer depletion
It is located about 10 to 50 km above the Earth's ground, about 90% of
the atmospheric ozone is present in this stratosphere, and it serves to
prevent ultraviolet rays coming from the sun.
One of invisible rays. In general, it is also called "UV", UV-cut
glasses and others are on sale. It is considered to have an adverse effect
on eyes and skin, causing skin cancer.
Law Concerning the Control of Freon Emissions
Law of Japan that came into effect on April 1, 2015. Before that it was
called the Freon Collection and Destruction Act. For air conditioners for
work using CFCs, inspection and recording etc are required.
A state that achieves advanced industrialization, has a high level of technology,
etc. and has a remarkable development. However, due to the abuse of Freon
by developed countries, the ozone layer which is present in the stratosphere
is being destroyed, and it is a challenge to rebuild UV countermeasure
Those that are rapidly developing in the international society such as
politics and military affairs.
Because it is developing rapidly among emerging countries, while it is
difficult to regulate energy such as electric power, we are taking efforts
to take measures for each country by the measures to destroy the ozone
layer, and to prepare ordinances as well.
The famous development that occurred in Japan was the high economic growth
of the 1960s, and this development caused air pollution such as chemical
substances. Furthermore, Itai-Itai disease, Minamata disease, second Minamata
disease, Yokkaichi asthma of four major pollution diseases also occurred
frequently at this time.
Countries close to or facing the Pacific Ocean, west of Asia. In recent
Asia and Oceania countries, leaders from various countries have gathered
and discussed at various places on energy problem.
It is a sedimentary rock which existed deeper than the place where resources
such as coal originally are produced and the dead bodies of zooplankton
were deposited on the seabed and fostered in the long years. In addition,
this shale oil is drawing attention as a fourth energy.
It says to make more energy than the amount of energy required. Supply
increases to demand.
Industry that is important for a country to do its economic activities.
Content varies depending on the degree of economic development. Iron and
steel industry and chemical industry etc. apply as the core industry in
Future of world
It refers to a country that is approved by the National Assembly for a
It refers to a country that agrees to a treaty. But, it is not legally
Conventions and arrangements exchanged between the country and the country.
Japan has many international conventions, including the Kyoto Protocol
and the Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The occurrence of abnormal weather, global warming, heat island phenomenon
and so on. The occurrence of such various types of climate change will
lead to a major destruction of the environment such as the sea level of
the world rising and the temperature rising.
