Draft Climate Deal Fakes Ambition in Order to Undermine Principles of Equity

PARIS - On the publication of the latest draft text from COP21, climate justice campaigners warned that the core principles of the UN climate process were at risk of being undermined by rich countries. They noted on the latest text:

Current pledges would bring the world nearer 3C and there is little hope of the financing needed to achieve global transition to clean energy
