The Empire’s Sun

India wants us to pay for its provision of future energies?

About bloody time, too.

————————————-

Many modern Indians are at ease with our shared British Empire past and some even take a decidely high road and debate the importance of British educational influence. Yet to many British [read: masses] people, India as a nation has long been looked upon as a suffering state – the middle child abused by the surly, mostly drunk, British father.
However!
In recent years, Indian economic and political growth – in part due to its exponential technological growth and grass roots adoption – has boomed.

Hell, they’re even getting some outerspace and lunar action.

So I say their suggestion that ‘…the costs of clean technologies should be carried by developed nations, which have grown rich through their heavy use of fossil fuels,’ is a fair one – hell, if you’d been given a piggy back by someone weaker than you for 20 years – let alone 100 of The Empire’s long awed colonialism – don’t you think that maybe, just maybe, it’s time to give them one as their weak frame soaks up some sun and a little nutrition?

No? Man. I knew we were greedy but I didn’t know we were all that cruel.

Even in war, there are still rules.
