News Picks : Climate talks stalled by economics of climate-induced damage

New York Times: Who should pay for climate-related damage has been a major topic of discussion at this year’s United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, being held 11–22 November in Warsaw, Poland. The debate pits developed nations against developing ones, which tend to suffer the most damage from the rising oceans, severe flooding, and extended droughts that have resulted from human-induced global warming. Although a group of developing nations staged a walkout early Wednesday to protest the lack of a mechanism to cover loss and damage, talks have since resumed. The ultimate goal of this year’s convention is to prepare a global climate agreement to be signed in 2015.
