Climate talks told to ease rifts as heat busts record 21.10.2014 deccanherald.com
Fresh UN climate talks opened in Bonn today with a plea for nations to overcome rifts as scientists reported record global temperatures for a month of September. In an appeal to negotiators at the six-day meeting, UN climate chief Christiana Figueres said renewed commitments made at a world summit on September 23 to curb climate change should prompt negotiators to "build bridges." Their discussions must lay the foundations for the annual ministerial-level talks to be held in Lima in December, she said. The Peru meeting, in turn, must pave the way to a pact in Paris in December 2015 that for the first time will bring 195 nations, rich and poor alike, into the same arena of commitment. "This week is a key opportunity to reach out to your counterparts, build bridges and find a path forward," said Figueres. The New York summit called by UN chief Ban Ki-moon had "shifted the ground on what is possible in climate change," she argued. "Collectively, your heads of state have reassured the world that we will ...

Fossil fuel industry sustained by toxic triangle that puts 400 million at risk 17.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Political inertia, financial short-termism and vested fossil fuel interests threaten to push up global temperatures, says Oxfam Political inertia, financial short-termism and vested fossil fuel interests have formed a toxic triangle that threatens to push up global temperatures, putting 400 million people at risk of hunger and drought by 2060, Oxfam said on Friday, a week before a European Union summit to finalise a new climate and energy policy framework. In its Food, Fossil Fuels and Filthy Finance report , Oxfam warned that EU leaders must resist pressure from the fossil fuel industry, which spends at least 44 million (£35m) a year on lobbying the European bloc. The report also urged leaders to commit to cuts of at least 55% in carbon dioxide emissions, energy savings of at least 40%, and an increase in the use of sustainable renewable energy to at least 45% of the energy ...
