JAPAN: A man fishes near Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant in Kashiwazaki, Japan, in May 2009. As Japan's economy shrinks, so too does the nation's energy consumption. Ranked the world's ninth-biggest energy user in 2007, consuming the equivalent of 514 million tons of oil, the island is projected to scale back to the equivalent of 489 million tons of oil by 2015.
