U.S. to Join China and India in Climate Pact
By JANE PERLEZ
Published: July 27, 2005

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Wednesday, July 27 - The United States plans to
join China and India in an Asian-Pacific climate agreement intended
to replace the Kyoto pact as a method to control greenhouse
emissions, an official attending the annual conference of Asian
nations in Vientiane, Laos, said Wednesday.

The new five-member pact, described as an initiative of the Bush
administration, would group the United States and Australia,
developed countries that have not signed the Kyoto accord, with China
and India, major producers of greenhouse emissions.

The pact, to be called the Asia-Pacific Partnership for Clean
Development and Climate, will join as partners nations that together
account for more than 40 percent of the worlds greenhouse gas
emissions, said the official said, who spoke anonymously so as not to
pre-empt the formal announcement.

The agreement will be a major item on the agenda later this week at
the summit meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations now
under way in Vientiane, the official said.

The deputy secretary of state, Robert Zoellick, who is representing
the Bush administration at the conference, is scheduled to arrive
Wednesday.

The aim of the pact will be to curb greenhouse emissions without
hurting economic growth in the region, the official said. The main
objection of the Bush administration to the Kyoto protocol is that
the mandatory targets for reducing emissions by 2012 would be too
much of a harness on developed industrial economies.

Instead of mandatory targets, the new pact would aim to use the
latest technologies to limit emissions and would try to make sure the
technologies were available to countries that need them most, the
official said. The members of the new grouping would include some of
the world's major coal producers and exporters: China, South Korea
and Australia.

Correction: July 27, 2005, Wednesday:

An article in some copies on Wednesday about a new agreement on
climate control reached by the United States, Australia, South Korea,
China and India to curb greenhouse emissions referred incorrectly to
the official positions of China and India regarding the Kyoto pact,
which took effect in February. While China and India, as developing
countries, are exempt from its emissions restrictions, they
nevertheless signed it.
