Good idea, Angie

Aug. 30 (Bloomberg) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel proposed a new system of measuring greenhouse gas emissions in developing nations, a step aimed at helping countries such as China and India sign up to global efforts to tackle climate change after the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012.

Merkel, on a five-day visit to China and Japan, proposed calculating the carbon-dioxide output of each country by its population instead of the absolute measurement used at present, according to the text of a speech to an economic symposium in Tokyo today.
