This is a video about a spawning ground of the Japanese giant salamander, threatened by pollution. See also here.

From Reuters:

Japan on Friday unveiled a nationwide survey of top greenhouse gas emitting factories and offices in fiscal 2006/07, part of a campaign to encourage individual companies to fight climate change.

The survey showed JFE Steel Corp was the No.1 polluter of 60.3 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent in the year ended in March 2007, followed by three of its peers — Nippon Steel Corp, Sumitomo Metal Industries Ltd and Kobe Steel Ltd.

Taiheiyo Cement Corp came fifth, and Nippon Oil Corp, sixth.
