US politicians come to India to learn about renewable energy

Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, along with other high ranking politicians traveled to India from the United States to learn from Indian businesses on how to become leaders in climate change and renewable energy.

Speaker Pelosi said, “Our delegation was very encouraged to hear that the leaders in the Indian business community believe industry can be in the forefront of climate change and energy efficiency initiatives, rather than stand as a barrier to change.”

The Press Trust of India also reported that the House intends to hold hearings next month on how the US can help developing nations like India address global warming.
