Japan is king of efficiency. But it's losing climate passion
TOKYO — "Protest" sounded too political. "March" was too militant. So when Japanese environmental activists organized a rally in Tokyo ahead of the U.N. global climate change meeting in Paris in 2015, they called it an "Earth parade." But only about 1,000 people showed up, in stark contrast to climate change rallies at the same time in other parts of the world.
