New Delhi: India said it will reject any new treaty to limit global warming that makes the country reduce greenhouse-gas emissions because that will undermine its energy consumption, transportation and food security.
Cutting back on climate-warming gases is a measure that instead must be taken by industrialized countries, and India is mobilizing developing nations to push that case, environment minister Jairam Ramesh told the media on Tuesday in New Delhi. “India will not accept any emission-reduction target—period,” Ramesh said. “This is a non-negotiable stand.”
