So someone explain to me…

Why CHINA is considered a “developing country” at the climate change talks?

I mean, seriously….It is arguably the 2nd or third in the world as far as industries….It is a nuclear (nukkular?) capable power, with the 2nd biggest army (mabee the first, I don’t have latest figures).

It was able to muster up enough resources to host the latest olympics, makes it’s own weapons(rather than buying them form other countries) has a space program….

So why are they listed as a third world “developing country” for the climate taxation talks in Copenhagen?
