I know, India realizes it needs to get behind this. As an Indian, I will not celebrate until I see more concern for air pollution; please do something about Delhi! I lived there for 7 days and did not see the giant stadium infront of our hotel window until the 5th. This wasn't even peak pollution season. Oh and two words: biodegradable plastic!
inb4 someone says "China's still using coal" or "Indians still shit in the streets"
India wets the air in order to lower the pollution. They're not so much leading it in order to fight climate change. Green power is cheaper and the health issues are causing them to invest more in it. China isn't afraid of Nuclear technology which when solar and wind isn't enough is the best alternative.
As Green power becomes cheaper most will find no reason to build carbon power. Won't matter how many times politicians say global warming doesn't exists.
Meanwhile the American leader are discussing how coal is the future.
China is going to lose a lot from global warming. A lot of the most populated areas in China are very close to the ocean, likewise with India.
That's so wholesome. 2 countries not in the "western hemisphere", pushing for a better world. I f***in love it.
