Protesters in the streets of Copenhagen are getting increasingly frustrated as negotiations at the conference crawl along, and the very real possibility of a deadlock looms. Stephen Beard talks with Kai Ryssdal about what’s going on — and what’s not.
Two giants in the discussions, the United States and China, are the world’s largest emitters of heat-trapping gases. From Shanghai, Marketplace’s Scott Tong reports on the big disagreements they have over how much carbon to cut and who should pay for it.
Marketplace reporters Sam Eaton and Stephen Beard are in Copenhagen, covering the United Nations Climate Change Conference. Angela Kim and Ben Adair at the Marketplace Sustainability Desk and Online Editor Richard Core are also posting updates and links to other coverage.
