How did the COP26 climate deal go down in India?

by News Update

A historic climate deal was reached at COP26 but it was overshadowed by a last-minute concession on cutting global reliance on coal.

A highly contested fossil fuel statement made it through to the final pact, but was watered down at the last minute as India forced through a re-wording of “phase-out” to “phase down”.

Sky’s Katerina Vittozzi has been finding out what people in the city of Chennai make of the final agreement.

Without coal, people will starve today. With coal, many more people will starve tomorrow. The morality of short term mitigation is questionable. However, all politics is physically and temporally local.

Don't blame India,when the Industrial revolution takes place we were not part of that,so we will not cut our coal uses

Damm what about Devloped nations ? They took the majority shares by emitting coal burnt gases but when time came to responsibility, all are equal?
Let's just be true…this whole idea of climate conference draft is just unfair for developing nations .
Devloped nations needed someone else to blame and they will still continue…

Per capita cumulative emissions of India is just 60 whereas UK is 1100. Still UK media is making India the scapegoat. Thieves lecturing the COP (Sherrif)

India’s only significant energy resource is coal, unlike Western nations we have little access to oil or gas. To phase out coal is asking us to immediately move towards renewables, now. We have invested in green energy well beyond our means, but such an ask is uncalled for, and cannot be accommodated. Besides, we committed to become net carbon by 2070, how we manage that is no-ones business, particularly considering our per capita emissions are amongst the lowest for any large economy.

It is sad that the summit didn't work out but it's also not right to blame the Indian state .
