Climate chief says’ Good Compromise ‘is better than’ no ‘warming deal

The climate talks in Glasgow were not a deal, or a piece of coal, and U.N. Climate Change Secretary Patricia Espinosa had no choice.

Among the UN’s criteria were commitments to halve carbon emissions by 2030,$100 billion in financial aid by rich countries to poor countries, and assurance that half of that money would go to helping developing countries adapt to the worst impacts of change.

Developed countries are leading the world in their roll-out of CCS, but, although coal remains the mainstay of India’s energy mix, there are no large-scale commercial CCS projects.

Many other nations and climate activists have criticized India for its demands that weakened the final accord.
