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."
