LIMA, Dec 13 (Reuters) – U.N. talks on slowing climate
change were threatened with collapse on Saturday after China
clashed with the United States and led emerging nations to
reject a compromise outline of an agreement.
With talks already in overtime because of deadlock after the
Dec. 1-12 meeting, China said a draft text put too much burden
on the poor to limit greenhouse-gas emissions compared with the
rich nations whose citizens have burnt most fossil fuels.
