India’s stand at the G-8 summit is all gas

Manmohan Singh is to attend the G-8 summit next week. And an interesting story in The Telegraph, Calcutta, says the Prime Minister will tell the world’s richest nations that India doesn’t have to cut the emission of greenhouse gases because:

# Indians eat less meat and so are more restrained in emitting gases than people in the West.

# The country belches less gas because its elite is used to eating leftovers.

# Vegetarian societies contribute little to gas emissions. And Indians use fuel-efficient automobiles rather than fume-spewing ones.
