Indian ambassador to the U.S. Ronen Sen explaining to American journalists about the nuclear deal:
If India were unable to expand its nuclear power industry with the help of U.S. and other imported fuel and technology, the country would have no choice but to burn its own stocks of "dirty coal ... at the cost of our health and health of this planet," Sen told a National Press Club briefing.
Sen said India now imported 70 percent of its oil and to sustain the rapidly growing economy, New Delhi had to pursue nuclear energy as an alternative to oil. If that were not possible, he said, "we are going to burn that coal."
Yeah, baby! Earlier, you heard similar thoughts from yours truly here!!
