Shinjiro Koizumi, Japan’s new environment minister, has pledged that he will work to raise the level of innovation in his country to combat climate change caused by human behavior.

Speaking at his first press conference after taking office, Koizumi said that anti-global warming measures alone cannot achieve them without creating innovation.

The minister called on the young generation to attract investment to Japan in order to achieve this positive transformation, and pledged that he will make efforts not only as environment minister, but also as minister responsible for social reforms in the country.

Shinjiro Koizumi expressed his desire that his country shut down nuclear reactors to avoid a repeat of the Fukushima disaster in 2011, said: “I would like to study how we will cancel it, not how to keep it”.

The minister’s remarks are expected to provoke controversy in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, which supports a return to nuclear energy under the new safety rules that were enforced after the disaster.

Koizumi is the son of former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, known for his anti-nuclear stance.
