Japan PM to draft 'Green New Deal' 8 Feb 2009

Aso will order a stimulus package focusing on slashing greenhouse gases at a meeting of his global warming advisory panel on Wednesday, the business daily Nikkei said citing unnamed government sources.

The report came as new US President Barack Obama vowed to lead the world on climate change as he set about shredding his predecessor's global warming policies with new measures to encourage the development of fuel-efficient cars.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon also called for a "Green New Deal" at a UN climate conference in Poland in December
