dubious deal 20.11.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
What the world's two biggest economies do should matter to all other nations. The climate change agreement between the United States of America and China is thus much more than an issue between the two of them. The danger is that it could turn out to be a bad deal for the whole world. The US and China are the two worst emitters of greenhouse gases. Unless they take realistic steps to cut emissions in large measures, it will be difficult to limit the rise in global mean surface temperature to two degrees Celsius, the benchmark agreed upon in Copenhagen in 2009, beyond which climate change will be "dangerous". Yet, what the two biggest polluters have agreed upon falls far short of what they are required to do. China has promised to cut emissions of greenhouse gases from 2030, by which year it intends to increase its use of non-fossil fuels to 20 per cent of its energy consumption. This could mean that the country is free to emit these gases till that year. The US has offered to cut its level of emissions ...

A road runs through it 18.11.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
The Narendra Modi government may be concerned about "clean" India but does it have a somewhat blinkered view when it comes to green India? That's what many environment experts are saying after the government proposed a series of changes to the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006, or FRA. The move has sparked a storm of outrage from activists who allege that it will deprive tribals and forest dwellers of their democratic rights to their own land.

Abbott will soon look like a genius for refusing to drag Australia to yet another climate fiasco | Tom Switzer 18.11.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Defensive, embarrassing, insular, cringe-worthy – this is just a sampler of media comment on Abbott’s performance at the G20. But look deeper and a different picture emerges Even as he continues to win plaudits from visiting Chinese and Indian leaders , the high priests and priestesses of the fourth estate are in full-throated rebellion against Tony Abbott. Defensive, embarrassing, timid, insular, clumsy, flawed, weird, cringe-worthy – this is just a sampler of media comment on Abbott’s performance at the G20 in Brisbane. But it is perhaps better to see Abbott as someone who refuses to agree at all times with outspoken, self-appointed pressure groups that breed around controversial questions. He makes an inviting rhetorical target precisely because he embodies that down-to-earth quality in our national spirit that has been all but obliterated by the modern obsession with courting fashionable opinion and the relentless media cycle. His bluntness – such as his defence of Big Coal or his threat to ...
