Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledges his country will target net zero carbon emissions by 2070, two decades later than COP26 climate conference target.
India PM Narendra Modi pledges net zero by 2070. India has announced plans to cut emissions to net 0 by 2070 – missing key goal of COP26 for countries to commit to reach that target by 2050.
Narendra Modi defends India as having stuck to its climate pledges ‘in spirit and letter’ and notes that his country contains 17% of the world’s population but is responsible for only 5% of global emissions.
What people are saying?
Mr.Strategic Also India is only country to have achieved the target set in Paris climate conference. India sets realistic targets while world pledges targets of 20 years later with no checks in between to see where they have reached. India can be given nuclear power to help achieve it earlier.
Stuart Maycock COP 26 is a waste of time and money !! No China ! No Russia and now India’s best offer is 2070. If the UK stop all our emissions tomorrow it will have zero effect on global temp and cost uk tax payers a small fortune.
