How India is a ‘bunch of dummies’ on climate change
India is one of the few countries that are not yet implementing the Paris Agreement, the landmark climate agreement signed in 2015, as it considers the implementation of the deal more important than the climate change it has created.
The other three countries are the U.S., China and Russia, which have all announced that they will join the pact.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the country will not join the accord in a press conference in December.
That decision came after the U, China and India agreed that the United States and Russia will provide funding for their research and development in India, and they will work together to implement the Paris agreement.
India is already contributing a portion of the U-Block, which has more than $100 billion in annual research funding.
But it is not a full partner, as India is currently not an actual signatory of the Paris Accord.
India has been under pressure from its own environment ministry to implement more of the international commitments that it has made, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions and phasing out coal power by 2025.
India also has pledged to phase out coal by 2030.
