Blair calls for developing nations to cut greenhouse gas emissions

China, India and other developing nations will have to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions if the world is to avert a global warming disaster, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said at a climate change conference Saturday. An agreement to succeed the Kyodo global warming pact that expires at the end of 2012 will have to find a way to include developing nations, while allowing them to grow their economies, Blair said. "The dilemma is this: how to cut a deal that has both the developed and developing in it, recognizing that the obligations on the one can't be the same as the obligations of the other," Blair said at the opening session of the conference outside Tokyo. He noted China and India are on the verge of a transition from rural to industrialized economies - setting the stage for a huge rise in emissions.
