India senior negotiator calls emission targets pathetic

In case you missed it last week, here’s a link to a BBC News story regarding the comments made by a one of India’s senior negotiators at the recent Copenhagen Summit.

Chandrashekhar Dasgupta is quoted as saying the “Industrialised nations had failed to set the truly ambitious targets needed” and called for them to adopt a 40% reduction target over the 30 year period as opposed to the current 25% to 30% targets which the EU ad envisaged.

One unhappy chap!
