  • US set to lead world towards a new climate deal: I call BS

    Posted on December 11th, 2008 Sandeep 4 comments

    According to this report from the BBC, the US is all set to lead the world towards a new climate deal, according to John Kerry. But – and it’s a big one – only if other countries pledge emission curbs too.

    I’m sorry, what? That’s not leadership. That’s saying ‘I’ll do it only if you do it’, and that’s not the way a good leader works. Besides, I have serious concerns about the US having the balls to do something like that – I mean, lead the way to a new climate deal. It has to be done by developing countries and only then will it be more effective and maybe, just maybe, we can have a better future.

    Barack Obama becoming the US president will have its positive effects, of course – especially if public transportation based on alternative fuel sources is improved.
