India's pro-climate forces ascend

By Juliet Eilperin

In a sign that climate activists are gaining ground in India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's special envoy on climate change resigned Friday.

Shyam Saran had clashed frequently with India's Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh, who has pushed for India to cooperate with other nations to forge a global climate pact.

According to a statement released by the prime minister's office, Saran "has been permitted to demit office from Friday, March 14."

What, pray tell, is a "pro-climate" force? What is an anti-climate force?

Gee, funny Juliet, how you've not bothered to report that the same Minister Ramesh announced weeks ago that India was creating its own climate research unit because it no longer trusted the UN's IPCC.

Yeah, funny that. Another Eilperin snow job. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

How/why the Post continues to let you hide what is really going on in climate circles is beyond me. It doesn't say much for professionalism at the Post. I think it goes without saying what it says about Eilperin's integrity.
