Deadlock at UN climate forum prompts US warning

Todd Stern, the United States Special Envoy for Climate Change, is seen during a press conference during the UN COP20 and CMP10 climate change conferences in Lima on December 8, 2014The US warned Saturday that failure to compromise could doom a planned global pact and wreck the credibility of climate talks, which remained gridlocked in Lima. “Failing to produce the decision before us will be seen as major breakdown and will deal a serious blow to… the hope of a Paris agreement,” US envoy Todd Stern told fellow negotiators as the talks ran deep into an unscheduled 13th day. “The success of this COP here in Lima is at stake,” he said, using the jargon for the annual Conference of Parties held under the auspices of the 195-nation UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). “The success of next year’s COP in Paris is at stake, and I think the future of the UNFCCC as the body to address climate change effectively at the international level is also at stake,” Stern added.
