"This timely book from Japan offers solutions to the global warming problem that lie in the development of comprehensive energy and environmental policies that emphasize the need for both greater energy efficiency and an increased role for renewable energy sources. Japan's experience is particularly relevant, due to its successes in reducing its overdependence on foreign energy supplies, which has subsequently put Japan at the forefront of energy conservation and anti-pollution technologies."--BOOK JACKET." ;
