It has been arguing, at a meeting of almost 200 nations in Marrakesh, for far more drastic action to limit rising temperatures.By contrast, Trump has called the very concept of man-made global warming a hoax and has said he will withdraw from the agreement, instead wanting to bolster the ...

India, other emerging markets investing more in clean energy: John Kerry 17.11.2016 DNA: India
The renewable energy boom is not limited to industrialised countries as emerging economies like India have invested more in such technologies than developed world, US Secretary of State John Kerry today said.
