1. Hardly a surprise

Less nuclear leads almost invariably to more coal (and now gas due to dramatically lower costs).

The sad thing is that most of Japan's existing coal generation capacity was close to being retired and replaced with cleaner alternatives. 45 new coal plants implies that they've given up on that and plan on coal for the long term.

So emissions that they know kill people every day... will continue for decades to come due to fear of emissions that probably haven't killed anyone.
