The climate crisis is already causing major changes in Japan. The archipelago gets more days with heat waves, more heavy rainfall, fewer rainy days overall, and 13% less snow depth per decade. Record-breaking typhoons have caused trillions of dollars in damage. At the same time, climate change hardly appeared as a footnote in the recent House of Lords election.
