Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the UN Climate Summit in Scotland Monday that his nation will achieve “net-zero” carbon emissions by 2070.
“India is committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2070 and generating 50 percent of its power from renewable energy by 2030, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) on Monday,” reports The Hill.
“Modi, calling the pledges part of ‘a gift of five elixirs,’ also vowed to increase the country’s non-fossil fuel energy capacity to 500 gigawatts, reduce total projected carbon emissions by 1 billion tons and reduce India’s carbon intensity by 45 percent — all by 2030,” adds the outlet.

“All of us are aware of the reality that the promises made so far on climate finance have only proved to be hollow,” Modi said.
“We are all increasing our ambitions with respect to climate action,” he continued. “The world’s ambitions with respect to climate finance cannot be at the same level as they were during the Paris Agreement.”

BRAIN FREEZE: Al Gore Demands Senate BLOCK POMPEO over Climate ‘DENIAL’
Former Vice President and climate change crusader Al Gore urged the Senate to reject President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State Thursday, claiming Mike Pompeo was unqualified because he “denies the climate crisis.”
Gore took to twitter to slam Trump’s pick to lead the State Department, saying the former CIA chief has been “doing the bidding” for fossil fuel corporations for years; adding the American people “deserve better.”
“Senators should reject Mike Pompeo’s nomination to be Secretary of State. He denies the climate crisis, and has been doing the bidding for fossil fuel interests his whole career. The American people deserve better,” tweeted Gore.
