Cautious hopes as UN adopts draft climate change deal

Scientists warn the planet will become increasingly hostile for mankind as it warms, with among the consequences catastrophic storms and severe droughtsNegotiators from 195 nations agreed on a draft Saturday for a pact to save mankind from disastrous global warming, raising hopes that decades of arguments will finally end with a historic deal in Paris. The planned pact would aim to break the world’s dependence on fossil fuels, slashing the greenhouse gas emissions from burning oil, coal and gas that are causing temperatures to rise dangerously. UN negotiations dating back to the early 1990s have failed to forge unity between rich and poor nations, and the Paris talks are being described as the “last, best chance” to save mankind.
