As Bloomberg noted : ” China and India’s joint plan to cut greenhouse-gas emissions gives the developing world an alternative to the climate treaty that wealthier nations want them to sign in Copenhagen, analysts said.”
“Asia’s two biggest polluters from burning carbon-based fuels announced their collaboration on renewable power and energy-efficiency projects in a memo of understanding yesterday in New Delhi.”
This regional agreement between two of the world’s largest greenhouse gases emitters is good news 50 days before the UN climate talks in Copenhagen.
