UN Climate Change Summit Reaches Deal

Delegates attending the UN climate summit in Mexico have agreed on a deal to fight climate change with deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

The deal approves the creation of a multi-billion dollar annual green fund for developing countries, although the sources of funding were not specified. It also leaves open an extension of the Kyoto Protocol due to expire in two years.

It was the first time in three years that the conference adopted any climate action, after a letdown the previous year in Copenhagen.'
