They further said that the United States roughly produces one-quarter of all global greenhouse gas emissions as such it should instantly take steps to check the spate of emissions from its land.

"We have come here to tell Hillary Clinton that the Aila (cyclone) victims in Sundarbans are not responsible for what they have gone through. The emissions in United States have caused global warming and climatic changes due to a great extent. We want the United States to come up with deep emission cuts and then it should come to India and ask us to do something on climate change," said Siddharth Pathak, Climate Energy Campaigner, Greenhouse, Indian chapter.
