COP21: Ministers in final push for Paris climate deal

Ministers from all over the world gather in Paris on Monday in a final push for a new global climate compact.
The politicians will attempt to craft a deal from a draft negotiating text signed off by delegates here on Saturday.
Poor countries warned the talks would fail if the rich tried to limit their right to grow to protect the climate.One delegate said the poor could not accept starvation as the price of a successful deal in Paris.Negotiators have taken four years to produce the draft text of a long-term agreement. The ministers will have just five days to turn that text into a deal acceptable to all 195 parties here.
