UN climate dialogues unravelling, face failure Dec 15, 2019 0 149 12345 AFPMadridA UN climate summit in Madrid risked collapsing on Saturday after all-night negotiations between countries left them more divided than ever over on how to fight global warming and pay for its ravages.Diplomats from rich nations, emerging giants and the world’s poorest countries -- each for their own reasons -- found fault in a draft agreement put forward by host Chile in a botched attempt to strike common ground.Negotiations in Madrid were under pressure to send a clear signal that governments are willing to double down in tackling the crisis. But the 12-day talks, now deep into overtime, had retreated even further from this goal on Saturday.“It appears that we are going backwards on the issue of ambition when we should be calling for a quantum leap in the other direction,” Marshall Islands climate envoy Tina Stege said.“I need to go home and look my children in the eye and say we got an outcome that is going to ensure their future, and the future of all of our children,” she added.
