India says no to CO2 limits...
No one really wants to limit their CO2 emissions...so why should we?
INDIA says it will reject proposals to limit greenhouse gas emissions at a summit meeting of the world's leading economies next month because stricter limits would slow its booming economy.
“Legally mandated measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions are likely to have significant adverse impacts on GDP growth of developing countries, including India,” environment ministry secretary Pradipto Ghosh said.
“This in turn will have serious implications for our poverty alleviation programs,” he said.
“Legal mandates on greenhouse gas mitigation in any form will impact our growth, and this is not the path we wish to pursue.”
