Putin: No Cuts without US and China.

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Friday he would reject any new climate change agreement that imposed restrictions on Russia but not on other big polluters, such as the United States or China, Reuters reports.

Russia, currently the world’s third largest polluter behind China and the United States, has offered to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 10-15 percent below 1990 levels by 2020. However, the country’s emissions were already 34 percent below 1990 levels in 2007, the latest year data were available.

It will be a tough job for Reinfeldt and Carlgren to get together an agreement at the Copenhagen Climate meeting...or maybe not if no cuts are really needed...

At any rate Putin can help solve the climate crisis by a cut of the delivery of gas to EU...
