Japan labels products' "carbon footprint"

Not far away in NZ, record snows are on the ground. While in Japan, record goons are still running around.

Japan to label goods' carbon footprints: official:

Japan is planning to label consumer goods to show their carbon footprints in a bid to raise public awareness about global warming, an official said Tuesday.

Under the plan, a select range of products from beverages to detergent will carry markings on the carbon footprint -- or how much gas responsible for global warming has been emitted through production and delivery.
