Biggest emitters to Europe: “You Pay”

With the world trying to negotiate a new climate deal, some countries aren’t too happy. Some countries were happy with the old deal, Kyoto. I wonder why.

India last night rejected a European roadmap to a new single, legally-binding agreement to revive the stuttering UN climate talks.

Using robust diplomatic language, environment minister Jayanthi Natarajan challenged rich countries to ratify a second commitment period of the Kyoto protocol (KP), and pay what they had promised to developing countries before trying to negotiate a new deal.

India are the world’s second biggest emitters, therefore the second biggest contributor to the fanciful climate catastrophe. It sounds a lot more like wealth redistribution than a means to combat global warming. 

China too wants a piece of the pie.

Natarajan’s defence of Kyoto was backed by China. “A second commitment period is a must. Kyoto should be continued. Developed countries should honour their commitments,” said Xie Zhenhua, head of Chinese delegation at Durban.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?
