Growth of economy in a country and climate change measures are always found to be difficult in balancing. But, can climate change be tackled without sacrificing economic growth? To find a solution to this, six of the world’s top polluters meet in Sydney this week to promote clean energy technology.
To complement the Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gases, the United States, Japan, China, India, Australia and South Korea will hold the first meeting of the Asia-Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate.
Claimed to be no rival to Kyoto, the six members will – unlike the Protocol — not be backing fixed targets for cutting emissions from burning fossil fuels. Some analysts here expect any resolution to be vague.
