We are SO close folks - 86% of the way there with a little less than 24 hours to go. Please subscribe to Climate Confidential and help us get this new project across the line. I'm particularly excited about a story in #Japan   we'll fund through this, which will look at the commonly held belief that #populationcontrol  = environmental gains. Japan is one of the first large countries where the population is beginning to decline substantially, but similar declines are expected for South Korea and #China . New research indicates that in fact per capita #greenhousegas  emissions have increased in Japan as population has decreased. We are partnering with The Japan Times and reporter Winifred Bird, who just returned stateside after 10 years reporting in Japan, on a story that will look at why emissions have increased as population has decreased in Japan, and what it will take -- both in Japan and beyond -- for shrinking populations to deliver environmental benefits.
