Stern Discusses Possible Outcomes Of Climate Talks

Play associated audio
Guy Raz speaks with Todd Stern, the U.S. special envoy for climate change. He talks about what will — and won't — be accomplished at the U.N. climate talks in Durban, South Africa. Stern predicts no binding agreement to reduce carbon emissions will come out of these talks. He says that's because developing countries such as China and India are not prepared to agree to reductions that would treat developing and developed nations equally. Stern points to the previous round of U.N. talks as having produced an important nonbinding agreement and says all the nations involved are taking that agreement seriously.
