And why, exactly, should the Japanese care about Prince Charles' thoughts on CO2?

Prince Charles says climate crisis trumps economy - USATODAY.com
He called on advanced nations to cut carbon emissions by 70 to 80% by the year 2050, saying "nothing less than a full-scale transformation to a low-carbon society is needed."
The prince has increasingly used his publicity to highlight environmental problems. He has made efforts to cut his overall annual carbon dioxide production, including converting his 38-year old Aston Martin to run on bioethanol from surplus wine, while his Jaguars, Audi and Range Rover now take biodiesel made from used cooking oil.
Charles is currently getting some richly deserved criticism in the comment section at the link above.
