Though Japan is at the cutting edge of green technologies, its citizens are the least eco-minded in the world. They came last for considering that “an eco-friendly lifestyle is comfortable”, for studying about global warming and preserving the environment or for buying eco-friendly products. As a paradox, more then 90-percent of them feel threatened by global warming.

On the other side, Parisians and Milanese are supposed to be the happiest to change their habits for a greener planet.
