Climate activists gather ahead of G20 summit

Jun 27, 2019 15:08 IST

Ahead of the G20 summit in Japan, environmental activists and residents in Kobe called on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to end funding for coal-fired power plants. The activists also demanded more aggressive efforts by the Japanese government to help curb climate change. According more than 50 non-governmental groups Japan is one of the largest funders of coal fired-power stations overseas. Japan ramped up use of coal-fired generators inside the country after most nuclear power plants were shut down post the 2011 nuclear disaster in Fukushima.
