The article presents the author's views on the stand of India and China in negotiations of a follow-up agreement to the Kyoto Protocol for carbon emissions limits. According to the author, India and China will take firm control of Copenhagen negotiations by standing together against any substantive carbon emissions limits for developing countries. It is stated that India and China will emit half of the world's carbon by 2030, and the U.S. will fall back into the pack.
