Cop 17 durban outcome 12 10 2011

UN police cordon off demonstrators at the venue of the UN climate talks on December 9, 2011 demanding that nations not sign a “death sentence” during COP 17, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, in Durban, South Africa. Talks entered their second week entangled in a thick mesh of issues with no guarantee that negotiators and their ministers will be able to sort them out. The 194-nation process is facing the prospect of a bustup, even as scientists warn against the mounting threat of disaster-provoking storms, droughts, flood and rising seas made worse by global warming.
