外文标题：Obama-Modi climate deal: Unlike China, no emission target for India
NEW DELHI: India and the US on Sunday stressed enhancing bilateral cooperation to deal with climate change but did not have a China-like bilateral deal where both Washington and Beijing last November set their respective emission cut goals.
Despite international pressure, India walked its own path keeping economic development in mind and insisted on tackling climate change by moving firmly on the clean, renewable energy path, adopting improved energy efficient technology and through various adaptation measures.

Right decision here for a developing country at this stage. Emission Target would restrict India's taking its projects to the next level. China on the other has achieved most of its goals.
Talking about renewable, energy many middle class family in India would be interested to go for solar energy. But it is extremely difficult. A 5kw system with 4hr backup might cost 6 lakh plus and 8 hr backup will cost 10lakh plus Indian rupee. I think this is far above international standards. I wish we have some data on research on the same and more efficient low cost solar system need to be produced and available at the earliest. I am not asking for Govt. concession as it is practically people's tax money.

What about the brown cloud over the Himalayas and the melting glaciers? India needs to reign in its pollution emissions. It is not about political deals but about the future life of the planet.

China And Us creates much carbon emission than any other country. India and Bangladesh is the sufferer of climate change. Us and China need to reduce carbon emission.
not an issue, INDIA having its own sets of goal
