Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has joined the ranks of a conservative global leader. He denounced Al Gore's Global Warming crowd as scammers.
According to the Daily Caller, "On the other side of the globe, India’s newly elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently made some comments that have the media outing him as a global warming skeptic. Answering questions about global warming on Teachers’ Day, Modi told people that “[c]limate change has not occurred,” adding that “[p]eople have changed.” Modi then gave an example of how elderly Indians are complaining of harsher winters every year."
PM Modi is slashing environmental regulations and boosting the coal sector.
As reported by the Daily Caller, "Modi will also not be attending the upcoming United Nations climate summit this month, joining China’s leader and others in opting not to attend the conference. The conference will feature a major march by environmental groups and more pleas from the U.N. for countries to agree on an international, binding climate treaty. While any real progress is doubtful this year, countries are gearing up for a major climate summit in 2015 that is supposed to craft an agreement to replace the defunct Kyoto Protocol."
Modi believes that a stronger economy for India is more important than worrying about carbon emmissions.
