After U.S.-China climate deal, focus on India to follow suit

WASHINGTON/NEW DELHI, Nov 13 (Reuters) – After this week’s
carbon deal between the United States and China, No. 3 emitter
India faces growing pressure to devise a clear strategy and step
out of China’s shadow during pivotal global climate talks.

India has given no sign what kind of commitment it will make
to address climate change in a global agreement. Officials
previously stressed that India would likely opt to slow
emissions growth rather than set a peak year on the grounds it
is entitled to economic growth.

Republicans vow EPA fight as Obama touts China climate deal

WASHINGTON, Nov 12 (Reuters) – Republican congressional
leaders on Wednesday wasted no time in criticizing what they
called President Barack Obama’s “one-sided” climate deal with
China, using the announcement to declare war on the
administration’s plan to use executive actions to combat carbon
emissions.

In brokering a high-profile pact with China, the Obama
administration knew it would preempt one of the most often-cited
arguments Republicans have used to argue against mandatory
domestic carbon cuts: China will continue to pollute unabated.
