Paris climate summit faces tougher job after modest Lima deal

LIMA (Reuters) – A Paris summit in 2015 will face a tougher task to agree a U.N. deal to slow climate change after the hopes of many that cooperation between Washington and Beijing would be a magic key to end global gridlock dissolved in chaotic preparatory talks in Lima.

At best, Paris may be a chance to reform a sprawling system of annual U.N. talks – more than 11,000 delegates attended the two-week talks in a tent city in Lima – and find ways to boost long-term action to stem rising greenhouse gas emissions.

U.N. talks agree building blocks for new-style climate deal in 2015

LIMA (Reuters) – About 190 nations agreed on Sunday the building blocks of a new-style global deal due in 2015 to combat climate change amid warnings that far tougher action will be needed to limit rising world temperatures.

Under the Lima deal, governments will submit national plans for reining in greenhouse gas emissions by an informal deadline of March 31, 2015 to form the basis of a global agreement due at a summit in Paris in a year’s time.
