India boasts of scuttling climate talks

A proud announcement of new-found international muscle:

India has confirmed it worked with China and other emerging nations to ensure there were no legally binding targets from the Copenhagen climate talks.

Facing parliament for the first time since the UN talks last weekend in the Danish capital, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said India had "come out quite well in Copenhagen".

Although India won't do all that well if carbon emissions are changing world climate - the country could be severly affected. Time will tell.

Anyway, it looks like the days of western hegemony are well and truly gone:

From day one, an impression gained ground that a cabal was going to dictate the terms as far as the Copenhagen meeting was concerned.

In your face bossy white guys.
