India, China object to Bali U.N. climate draft
Source: Reuters

India and China objected on Saturday to a draft deal at U.N. talks in Bali to launch negotiations on a global pact by 2009 to fight climate change, saying rich nations should do more to lead the way.

"This is completely unacceptable", a source close to the Chinese delegation said. Soon after resuming on Saturday morning, the talks were suspended to try to resolve the tangle.

But Dutch Environment Minister Jacqueline Cramer told Reuters the European Union, which backed a draft text presented earlier, said the Indian demands were "unacceptable to the EU".

We now find ourselves in a death spiral, as if we were light being swallowed by a blackhole of greed.
