"U.N. Climate Deal Retreats As Bonn Talks End"

"U.N. climate talks have moved backward rather than forward toward a hoped-for deal later this year as nations make slow progress on pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions and add more proposals to the working document.

As talks in Bonn on a new climate treaty draw to an end on Friday, the frustration of delegates with the process this week is clearly felt, and a deal in Mexico this year seems unlikely.

This week's meeting is the penultimate before a meeting set for the end of November in Cancun, Mexico."

Nina Chestney reports for Reuters August 9, 2010.
