Strong arm' tactics to get India to agree to strict emissions cuts criticised

Date : 5th February 2009, Source : The Guardian (UK)



Environmentalists have strongly criticised attempts to "strong arm" developing countries such as India into a binding commitment to cut greenhouse gas emissions after the United Nations secretary general asked poorer nations to "get on board" with the industrialised world to find solutions to the climate crisis.
