Mexican climate negotiator makes ‘tearful plea’ for climate consensus as hurricane nears

-

“In about four hours, Hurricane Patricia will hit the Mexican coast,” Roberto Dondisch said at the closing session of a fraught round of negotiations in Bonn. “I don’t think I need to say more about the urgency to get this deal done.”

“I ask you all to put aside your differences so together we can start working.”

Dondisch made the plea on the final session of a five-day effort to advance towards a post-2020 UN pact to tame greenhouse gases.
