Compromise Breaks Climate Talks Deadlock

WARSAW, Poland (November 23, 2013) Developed countries and fast-growing economies reached a last-minute compromise to avert a breakdown of U.N. climate talks in Warsaw.

Talks were deadlocked after China and India clashed with the U.S. and other developed countries on how to pave the way for a new agreement to fight global warming.

The stalemate was unlocked by a compromise that called on all countries to prepare "contributions," rather than "commitments" for the new deal, which is supposed to be adopted in 2015.
