Cop out of COP 15

India is not going to sign the so-called deal.

Neither is China, or the US. But then, what did we expect?

An Indian official now gets to say:

“…and the defeat of the Democrats in the Massachusetts bypoll, has forced the UN to postpone the deadline indefinitely. With the Democrats losing in one of their strongholds, the chances of the climate bill going through the US senate have receded dramatically. So if the US is not going to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent, which was a very weak target anyway, why should we make any commitment even if it does not have any legal teeth?”

 It is a global village, for real.
