AFP - India, as an advanced developing nation, can help lead the world in renewable energy technologies to solve "the climate change crisis," former US vice president and Nobel Peace winner Al Gore said.
Developing countries say they cannot yet make commitments to cut their emissions because it will hamper their economic growth.
RLCC Comment: Nations that are rushing toward what they term "economic growth" by means of pollution are simply shooting themselves in the foot. It is worst than robbing Peter to pay Paul.
The only intelligent way to grow is via means that are environmentally beneficial in both the short run and long run. Everything else is simply living recklessly off the destruction of the planet.
