The Democratic Party of Japan will pledge a 25 percent cut in Japan's greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 from 1990 levels in its manifesto for the upcoming national campaign, party officials said Sunday.

Alors! Round up the usual suspects!!!
They need to stop digging!
Depends whether the DP wants to destroy their own country, or the democratic party’s country (over here).
Well cutting CO2 is not as hard when your population is declining.
How IDIOTIC can one get!!
