For the world’s fifth-biggest emitter, reining in emissions from utilities that contribute about 4/5ths of carbon dioxide output is key to achieving the deadline set by its new prime minister, Yoshihide Suga.


Suga unveiled the 2050 goal after Japan said it aimed to be carbon-free sometime in the second half of the century, which brings it in line with the European Union.

    If you’ve ever had a look at the darker side of the Internet, then you’ll know all too well what a nightmare it can be to try and find out what to do if your social security number is found on the dark web links. Many people are caught out by unscrupulous marketers who set up bogus websites to con them out of their money or steal their details. More worryingly, identity thieves have been known to use the dark web to carry out identity fraud. If you ever get a hit from one of these criminals, it’s important to make sure you know what to do if your social security number has been found on the dark web, and how to get it back.
