COP23: Climate fund negotiations agree on way forward

Sunday 05:10 GMT

"The Bonn climate talks were foundational," said Paula Caballero, global climate director at the World Resources Institute. These talks are "paving the way to finalize the rules that underpin the Paris Agreement next year, and setting the stage for countries to commit to enhance their national climate plans by 2020," she continued, calling the Bonn talks "a success."

The bar was low for his year's United Nations climate summit in Bonn — anything keeping the momentum of the Paris process going was to be deemed a success.

Sunday 14:30 GMT

Perhaps the most revealing moment at this year’s United Nations climate talks came on Wednesday, when Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany addressed the nearly 200 nations gathered here.

That presentation came on the heels of a news conference by a different set of scientists, who announced that current industrial emissions of greenhouse gases have not yet peaked — instead, they are likely to rise again in 2017, driven in part by a rebound in coal use in China.
