Le Sommet du G8 vu par la presse japonaise

Mainichi Shimbun

Un regard sur la presse quotidienne japonaise qui a couvert le sommet du G8 de Toya-ko, un exemple avec le Mainchi shimbun au tirage de 5,4 millions d'exemplaires / jour. J'ai souvent travaille avec des journalistes du Mainichi et je leur tire un coup de chapeau car leur objectivite et leurs investigations en font l'un des meilleurs exemples du journalisme au Japon. Subsiste néanmoins le délicat problème des "Kishas clubs", les clubs de reporters, j'y reviendrai. L'article est issu du site Internet avec une photo d'illustration des dirigeants du G8 et du G5. J'ai mis en lien (click sur le titre) le site (presentation, deontologie, tirages) de l'association nationale de la presse japonaise, la Nihon Shimbun Kyokai dont M. Tadao Koike, mon "parrain" dans la presse japonaise, a ete le president, il est egalement ancien president du Mainichi Shimbun.

(Global leaders agree to reduce greenhouse gas emissions but set no numerical targets)


TOYAKO, Hokkaido -- Leaders of the Group of Eight (G8) and eight other major countries agreed Wednesday to make efforts to sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but stopped short of setting numerical targets.

The 16 members of the Major Economies Meeting on Energy Security and Climate Change (MEM), including China, India and other major greenhouse gas emitters, reached the agreement on Wednesday, the last day of the three-day Hokkaido Toyako Summit.

They are poised to continue to cooperate closely with their efforts to achieve the goal of halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, which was set by the G8 members on Tuesday.

However, the success of efforts to prevent global warming hinges largely on whether G8 countries and developing nations, which claim that developed countries are responsible for the accumulation of greenhouse gases, can narrow their differences, say observers.

This is the first MEM session that brought together the leaders of all member countries. The MEM was set up in September last year at the proposal of U.S. President George W. Bush, who claims that no effective agreement can be reached on measures to prevent global warming without the participation of China and India, who are major greenhouse gas emitters.

Of the MEM members, the leaders of China, India, Mexico, Brazil and South Africa had met in Sapporo on Tuesday and adopted a declaration urging developed countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 80 to 95 percent by 2050.
