‘Life on planet at stake’, France warns as climate ministers meet

-

France’s top diplomat, who will preside over a year-end Paris summit tasked with inking a climate rescue pact, warned Sunday of looming planetary “catastrophe” if negotiations fail.

“It is life on our planet itself which is at stake,” Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told journalists as ministers and climate envoys from 70 countries met for pre-summit talks to iron out tough political questions.

With the key UN conference just three weeks away, he also announced that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin would attend the November 30 opening.
