EU calls on developing nations to help fight climate change

While Europe will take the lead on fighting climate change, developing nations such as China and India must all play their part in helping to reduce global carbon emissions, according to a leading European politician.

Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the EU Commission, stated that as the world''s biggest producer of energy, European countries were willing to do as much as possible to cut carbon emissions, EarthTimes reported.

However, he also called on fast-growing economies such as China to take a different approach but to also responsibility for reducing their carbon output.

"The European Union has put its cards on the table. As the world''s biggest importer of energy, and second biggest consumer, I think it was important for us to take the lead," Mr Barroso said.

"Let me be clear: we do not expect countries like India and China to take the same commitments we do. But we do expect them to de- couple energy consumption and growth, in line with our common but differentiated responsibilities," he added.

Mr Barosso was speaking at the start of the 2007 World Energy Congress, taking place in Rome, Italy.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18352522-ADNFCR
