India refuses to budge over emissions targets

And by doing so, renders pointless the Rudd government's desperation to get the ETS into law before Copenhagen in order to give a "lead" to the international community. What is the point of Australia (1.5% of global emissions) crippling its economy when India has no intention of doing the same? Looks like there will be even more Aussie businesses migrating to the sub-continent if this madness continues:
During an awkward press conference with [Hillary] Clinton, India's Environment Minister, Jairam Ramesh, stated bluntly that India would not give in to international pressure to cut emissions.

"India's position is clear and categorical that we are simply not in a position to take any legally binding emissions reductions," Mr Ramesh said.

Mr Ramesh is reported to have driven home his point at a separate closed-door meeting with Mrs Clinton, saying there was "no case for the pressure that we, who have among the lowest emissions per capita, face to actually reduce emissions".
