India to Obama: We're Really Not All That Interested in Legally Binding Caps on Carbon Emissions

Shocking. An industrialized democratic nation seems to think this might harm their economic growth.

Clinton is on a state visit to India meant to showcase trade and security ties and seek common ground on climate change and arms control. India has said it will reject any new treaty to limit global warming that makes it reduce emissions because that will undermine the country’s energy consumption, transportation and food security.

Yeah, it would do that, I see their point.

SecState Hillary reiterates our willingness to "lead", while at the same time mentioning the fly in the ointment.


“There is no question that developed countries like mine must lead on this issue and for our part, under President Obama, we are not only acknowledging our contributions to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, we are taking steps to reverse its ill effects,” Clinton said. “It is essential for major developing countries like India to also lead because over 80 percent of the growth in future emissions will be from developing countries.”

Will be from? Ninja, please.


Here's an in-depth DinT analysis of these "critical" negotiations; the rest of the developing world will be quite happy to watch us purposefully screw up our economy (insofar as it benefits them competitively) and overtax our citizens in the name of the absurd lie that is manmade global warming, but they just aren't all that interested in punishing themselves for same.

I wonder what kinda deal T. Boone Pickens will make me on one of those windmills?
