Washington, May 15: US Special Envoy for Climate Change John Kerry says the United States has partnered with him on climate change to help India achieve its goal of 450 gigawatts of renewable energy. “Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi has set a target of generating 450 gigawatts of renewable energy,” Kerry told lawmakers. We have partnered with India because of this commitment, because it does not have adequate funding and technology. ”
“So, we’re helping them,” he told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee during a House of Representatives meeting this week on issues related to climate change. Reacting to Kerry’s remarks, MP Joe Wilson said that Prime Minister Modi has done a “great job” for the people of India. Kerry says India needs to cut carbon emissions on a large scale.

In response to a question, he said that the countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) combined to emit more carbon than China alone. “If China does not participate in these efforts and is not a part of them, the United States and other parts of the world will not be able to achieve their goals,” Kerry said.
