Paris accord on climate change likely to take effect in November

Most Saturday morning papers front-paged the EU’s decision to approve next week the Paris accord on global warming, noting that the landmark international pact to address climate change is likely to take effect in November since India is also expected to ratify it shortly. The dailies underscored that Japan’s parliamentary approval is lagging behind and expressed concern that the country might be excluded from a UN meeting to establish rules for the pact’s implementation that will begin in Paris in early November because participation is premised on ratification. According to Yomiuri, a GOJ source was surprised by what he called the “speedy” approval by the EU and India.
