India's per capita carbon emissions is 1/8th of Iran's and only a fraction of any of the western countries. Share of renewable energy in India is at 35% and rapidly improving. Given this and the fact that India needs to pull millions out of abject poverty, how do you think the world can convince the Indian govt to spend billions of dollars more on wind, solar, tidal instead of easily and cheaply available coal? Is cutting down the per capita carbon emissions of western countries an option at all?

Is there any particular reason why countries keep pumping money into coal power plants if green energy methods are much cheaper?
