Here's an interesting post about inequities in the discourse around cutting carbon emissions between developing and developed countries. China (and, increasingly, India) are often held up as major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. But the fact of the matter is that much of the Western world's current developed state is a direct result of burning fossil fuels to power industry. While India has made renewable energy a critical plank of its energy agenda, coal and oil still meet a bulk of its energy needs. Until renewable energy technologies mature in the country, that may remain the case for some time to come.
