Demand Clean Tech

India Today (April 23, 07) has outlined 25 things Indians can do about global warming - 2 I like:
1)Just as in HIV/AIDS, for which nations agreed to drop prices of drugs to suit every pocket, get the governement to persist on developed countries to sell clean technology to developing nations cheap - specificall India - so that we can cut down on emissions...
2)Rationalise price of electricity - with electricity being supplied for free in many states in rural areas, no-one really bothers to istall energy efficient pumpsets.Or for that matter to put off the switches when not using them....So haul up politicialns for indulging in populism and educate villagers on the virtues of paid power.
