    Doesn’t matter, Obama will continue his deindustrialization campaign anyway. The point is not that Obama’s policies will actually have any effect on climate the point is that we in the west have to pay for our (environmental) sins.

    And if there were, in fact, man-caused global warming, this would be a concern . . .

    Well done India. The Indian government has a moral obligation to lift por Indians out of poverty and to call BS on the Greens Great Global Warming Scam.

  • Jacksonian_Libertarian

    “Global Warming” is BS and India is right to give it the back of their hand.

    Bully for India. But “historical responsibility” is balderdash.

    Why don’t America, the EU and Japan build nuclear power plants for India and China? That would solve the problem of electricity generation for these countries without any increase in greenhouse emissions, not to mention toxic smog that is going to kill people regardless of what one thinks of global warming.

      While I agree with the spirit behind your suggestion, in practice neither the Indians or the Chinese would permit such a thing (though they would happily pocket payments to do so….and then direct the payments to the bottomless hole of corruption and cronyism), as both countries have their own nuclear industries.

        Someone should really get China and India on nuclear power as soon as possible. Even if you don’t agree with the idea of man made global warming, the smog from coal plants is still really disgusting and unhealthy. And unlike other non fossil fuel sources of power, Nuclear energy actually is reliable.

          We completely agree. The Chinese are getting aggressive about building nukes, and the Indians are starting to move in that direction too, but their massive problems with corruption are a huge issue slowing them down.
