I only speak English.Let me try again.Under UN,IPCC protocols,China and India,as signatories to the climate convention are EXEMPT,as far as carbon emissions,until they reach industrial parity with the developed world.It's not a 'pass.'
And the argument is that 'energy' is associated with wealth.And energy is no longer the sole domain of fossil-fuels.
