    India has rejected pleas from the Obama administration to enter into an agreement to put a future limit on its greenhouse gas emissions in order to fight global warming.

    President Barack Obama went abroad hoping to strike a climate deal with India — the world’s third-largest greenhouse-gas emitter — in order to build support for an international global warming treaty ahead of a United Nations summit later this year. But India had other ideas.

    Obama wanted India to announce it would peak its greenhouse gas emissions by a certain year, mirroring a pledge China made last year to peak its emissions by 2030. But India’s government refused, not wanting to have to make a China-sized promise on climate.

    “Having a peaking year was not acceptable to us,” an environment ministry official told the Hindustan Times.

    Obama insulted India on a previous trip when he told them that Islam is a great religion. India has suffered too many Islamic terrorist attacks. They probably look at Obama as just another Indonesian looking for a handout.

    India's leadership evidently doesn't want to cripple their economy like Obama wants to cripple ours.
