NEW DELHI: Without mentioning that China thwarted India's Nuclear Suppliers Group membership+ , Beijing-run media said it is "high time" New Delhi shows it means business when it comes to limiting the effects+ of climate change+ .
"India has striven to become a world power and to have a bigger say in international affairs, hence it needs to shoulder its due responsibilities+ and take actions, regardless of the difficulties, to help save the planet," said an article in the Chinese government-run Global Times.
That it is China that has made India's Paris agreement goal difficult wasn't mentioned in the article. Beijing blocked India+ 's bid for membership to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). And India had been counting on being an NSG member as that would help it ramp up nuclear power and reduce its dependence on fossil fuel.
The article said that if the Indian economy grows as quickly as it wants, emissions will continue to rise. But India shouldn't use that as an excuse, the article said.
Yah right- China and a reliable partner?
In my two trips to China I did not see sun- there was so much smog - they closed factories for three weeks before the leaders arrived so sky was visible! Who wants their help and advise?
Here I am inclined to agree with you. My son went to China and his report too was the same.
China is not a standard to compare with.
I think it is worth to ask China to invest in building a couple of nuclear power plants in India.

India has lowest per capita emission rate in the world in the top 10 high economy countries. Still, India is committed to bring down the emission rates further. Where is China ?
Form a new UN and Security Council where there is no place for china
China produces highest ewaste and pollution in the world
Chinese make me laugh. India has democratic system not like China; one order every one obeys and vote for climate change
Funny guys, it''s paradox that their forefathers invented mirror. :)
