Paris climate talks to continue into weekend-By EUOBSERVER

11. Dec, 09:06-French foreign minister Fabius, who chairs the global talks on a climate treaty in Paris, told French media on Friday morning that a deal was not possible on Friday, as planned, but that negotiations will continue into the weekend. He said a new draft text will be ready Saturday morning.

MEP: Polish slow-down on EU climate 'has begun'-By EUOBSERVER

11. Dec, 14:59-In the final phase of climate negotiations in Paris, the Polish delegation has started objecting to possible compromises outside the agreed EU mandate, Green MEP Eickhout said Friday after being briefed by EU climate commissioner Canete. He added French president Hollande started a diplomatic push by calling other European capitals.

Climate negotiators say global deal is close in Paris talks; new draft expected Saturday-BY Karl Ritter And Angela Charlton, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – DEC 11,15-YAHOO NEWS

LE BOURGET, France - Talks on a global pact to fight global warming appeared to make progress late Friday, with some negotiators telling The Associated Press a deal was close.Negotiators emerged from meetings with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, the host of the talks, amid an air of optimism that had been lacking just hours earlier.Fabius was expected to present a new, potentially final draft of the elusive accord Saturday morning at 9 a.m. (0800 GMT)."We are pretty much there," Egyptian Environment Minister Khaled Fahmy, the chairman of a bloc of African countries, told the AP late Friday. "There have been tremendous developments in the last hours. We are very close."A negotiator from a developed country was equally positive. "I think we got it," said the negotiator, who was not authorized to speak publicly as the talks were not over yet.Negotiators from more than 190 countries in Paris are aiming to create something that's never been done before: an agreement for all countries to reduce man-made emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and help the poorest adapt to rising seas, fiercer weather and other impacts of global warming.This accord is the first time all countries are expected to pitch in — the previous emissions treaty, the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, only included rich countries.The talks, originally scheduled to end Friday, dragged into an extra day as the French hosts said they needed more time to overcome disputes.A French official expressed confidence that the draft to be presented Saturday would be the final one. The official was not authorized to speak publicly because the negotiations were ongoing.Prime Minister Enele Sopoaga of the Pacific island nation of Tuvalu was also upbeat."The signals that have come to me give me encouragement that we are going to have a very ... comprehensive and strong agreement in Paris," Sopoaga told the AP.Liu Zhenmin, deputy chief of the Chinese delegation, was more cautious. Asked by the AP whether the draft would be the final one, he said only if "it's more or less acceptable."Earlier Friday, Liu stood firm on his nation's demand that rich countries should assume most responsibility for the costs and argued against an agreement that sets too-tough goals for weaning the world off using oil, gas and coal — the biggest source of carbon emissions.The U.S. and European countries want to move away from so-called "differentiation" among economies and want big emerging countries like China and India to pitch in more in a final climate deal.Liu told reporters that issue is "at the core of our concern for the Paris agreement." He said he wants different rules for different countries "clearly stipulated" in the global warming pact.China is among the more than 180 countries that have submitted emissions targets for the new pact but is resisting Western proposals for robust transparency rules that would require each country to show whether it's on track to meet its target.Liu also argued against sharply limiting the number of degrees the planet warms this century, because that would involve huge lifestyle and economic changes."We need heating. We need air conditioning. You need to drive your car," he said.Indian Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar also said differentiation was the biggest dispute and accused developed countries of not showing enough flexibility in the talks.However, signs of divisions among major developing countries surfaced Friday as Brazil joined an informal coalition of Western countries and some developing ones in a "high-ambition coalition" that is calling for a strong deal.Liu dismissed the coalition as a "performance."U.S. Secretary of State Kerry, on his fifth straight day in France trying to iron out differences with developing countries, said he's "hopeful" for an accord and has been working behind the scenes to reach compromises.U.S. climate envoy Todd Stern declined to comment after a meeting with Fabius late Friday.The talks are the culmination of years of U.N.-led efforts to create a long-term climate deal. U.N. climate conferences often run past their deadlines, given the complexity and sensitivity of each word in an international agreement and the consequences for national economies.Analysts said the delay until Saturday was not necessarily a bad sign."This needs consensus," said Michael Jacobs, an economist with the New Climate Economy project, speaking to reporters. "There's a lot of negotiating to do."A 27-page draft released Thursday said governments would aim to peak the emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases "as soon as possible" and strive to reach "emissions neutrality" by the second half of the century — a vague term generally understood to mean no more emissions than the Earth can naturally absorb. That was weaker language than in previous drafts, which included more specific emissions cuts and timeframes.China's Liu said negotiators don't understand what is meant by "neutrality" and argued for an even softer "low-carbon" goal.The draft didn't resolve how to deal with demands from vulnerable countries to deal with unavoidable damage from rising seas and other climate impacts. One option said such losses would be addressed in a way that doesn't involve liability and compensation — a U.S. demand.Sopoaga, the Tuvalu leader, said he had discussed the issue with Kerry and that he was optimistic that a solution would be found.Fabius said the world would not find a better moment to reach a global climate deal."All the conditions are met to reach a universal, ambitious agreement," he said.___Sylvie Corbet, Seth Borenstein, Matthew Lee and Nicolas Garriga in Le Bourget contributed to this report.

Who speaks for the EU at Paris climate summit? By Peter Teffer-EUOBSERVER

Paris, 11. Dec, 18:34-Fame is a relative concept at an international conference on climate change.The journalist asking a question at a press conference on Friday (11 December) could be forgiven for not knowing that Carole Dieschbourg, Luxembourg's 38-year-old minister for environment, also speaks on behalf of the entire European Union.Even within the EU there will be many people who do not know that Luxembourg currently holds the six-month rotating Council presidency, and that the Green Luxembourgian has been catapulted onto the global stage as one of the faces of the Union.The journalist asked why the EU was “not present now” at a press conference by the so-called High Ambition Coalition, an ad-hoc alliance formed in recent days in Paris.The host of the press conference, foreign minister for the Marshall Islands Tony de Brum, introduced her as “the president of the EU”, which was followed by laughter, and then applause.“Yes, hello, I'm Carole Dieschbourg, minister of environment of Luxembourg, representing the EU. We have [the Council of the EU] presidency at the moment, so I'm present,” she said.The incident reminded of that often-quoted question from former US diplomat Henry Kissinger, who to call when he wanted to “talk to Europe”.But here at the climate conference in Paris the many faces of the EU may prove to be an asset rather than a cause for confusion.-The Canete-Dieschbourg tango-The main negotiator on behalf of the EU is Miguel Arias Canete, European commissioner for climate. He has often shared the podium with Dieschbourg, who this semester chairs the meetings of environment ministers of the EU member states. According to several sources close to the EU delegation, Canete is mainly the man who reaches out to other countries, while Dieschbourg tries to coordinate with the 27 other national ministers, each of which represents an individual party to the treaty they are working on.That doesn't mean that Dieschbourg does not speak to non-EU negotiators, but her focus is intra-EU, said one EU source who asked to remain anonymous. This will become increasingly difficult in the coming hours, as Canete may have to make some compromises that go beyond what EU ministers have agreed in their mandate. That will require a lot of bilateral contact back and forth – especially to keep coal-dependant Poland happy.“[Dieschbourg's] job is to keep EU ministers together,” the contact said, adding that Canete and Dieschbourg also complement each other.“Canete is quite a dominant person, maybe too harsh, while Dieschbourg can calm people down a bit,” said the contact.Gender also plays a role.“She has a lot of good contacts with women,” the source said, adding that personal relations are very important at the climate summit. “A lot is about trust.”For his part, the Spaniard Canete was able to reach out to Latin American countries, noted Green MEP Bas Eickhout.“ Climate talks can be a bit more rough than regular diplomacy, and Canete is in his element here,” noted the parliamentarian, adding that the long hours of talks and little sleep seem only to reinforce Canete's spirit.In Paris, the negotiations are taking place on many different levels, often simultaneously.In that sense it is an asset to have 28 ministers available in addition to lead negotiator Canete, noted Eickhout.-Deploy the Swedes-Those ministers, as well as other representatives of individual member states, are being deployed strategically.“Sweden has a very good relationship with a lot of least developed countries, because Sweden is a big aid donor,” said Helena Hellström Gefwert, spokesperson for the Swedish delegation.“We can more easily than some other EU member states have bilateral meetings with those type of countries,” she added.In the past week, Swedish minister Asa Romson herself has been less available to promote the Swedish and EU positions as she was given a role as mediator.She, together with five other European ministers, was named a “facilitator” (or sometimes “co-facilitator”), a role the French presidency of the summit has bestowed onto 19 officials in order to find consensus on a particular topic.In Romson's case, she was tasked with bridging gaps between parties on the issues “adaption” and “loss & damage”, which refer to ways to adapt to climate change that has already happened, and potential financial recovery money for it, respectively. But Hellström Gefwert said that the appointment as faciliator only helped Sweden's profile.“ Sweden's voice is stronger because of the Swedish minister's work as co-facilitator, because the world sees Sweden has an important role. It makes it easier for the Swedish delegation to arrange meetings,” the spokesperson said.The facilitators were appointed in pairs, with one from a developing country, and one from a developed country. In the latter category, the dominance of European ministers (from Germany, Norway, UK, Sweden, Switzerland, and Poland) somewhat stands out.Partly this is because most of the developed countries are in Europe, said Michael Jacobs, a former climate adviser to the UK government. But he added: “European ministers are quite good at this kind of thing. They have to do so much internal negotiating, they know how to negotiate.”The French presidency-And then there is Laurent Fabius.France's foreign minister has been chairing the 21st Conference of the Parties, as the summit is officially called, and he has been praised throughout the week.“The key players right now are France, full stop. Chairing the COP21 discussions is perhaps the most powerful position a European member state is in. Their influence is great,” MEP Ian Duncan, of the Conservative Party in the UK, told this website on Friday morning.“I think the reason we're on schedule, that much progress has been made, that the outcome is looking much more constructive is primarily due to the drive of the French,” he noted.Of course, as the negotiations continue into the night of Friday to Saturday, the process may still slip from the French' hands. But so far, France's diplomatic tradition seems to pay off.“We need to give credit to the French presidency for their impeccable way of steering this process,” Elina Bardram, head of the EU delegation, told journalists on Thursday.“On Wednesday … it was very, very clear that there was no single party that was protesting the way the French COP presidency has steered this process. It has been inclusive. It has been responsive. It has been transparent,” she noted.At the same time, the anonymous EU source noted, “we should not be too close to the French presidency” to avoid the summit to be seen as a European affair.Meanwhile, EUobserver asked the United States' State Department who its climate envoy Todd Stern would call if he wants to speak to Europe.“Commissioner Miguel Canete,” a senior state department official answered in an e-mail, adding “Special Envoy Stern has strong relationships with other excellent EU counterparts like Amber Rudd (UK), Barbara Hendriks (Germany) etc.”

EU 'optimistic' on climate deal, long night ahead By Peter Teffer-EUOBSERVER

Paris, 10. Dec, 18:51-The European Union's climate chief, Miguel Arias Canete, is optimistic that the world's governments can reach an “ambitious” climate deal in Paris, he told journalists at a press conference on Thursday afternoon (10 December), but he said the agreement should ask commitments from all countries.“We cannot repeat the experience of Kyoto,” the European commissioner said in Paris, referring to the 1997 climate conference in Japan, where only 38 countries signed up to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which cause global warming.Canete said this time around, 185 countries already submitted pledges to reduce emissions in the past year.“In Kyoto, we only covered 12 percent of global emissions. Today … we are covering more than 96 percent of global emissions. This is an astounding story of success.” He added: “The most important thing is that the agreement is inclusive. We need all emitters of the world together in this agreement. We cannot lose China, which is responsible for 23 [percent of emissions]. We cannot lose United States, which is responsible for 12 percent.”However, he also noted several sticking points remain.Referring to a draft version of the treaty, released by the French presidency of the summit on Wednesday, Canete said “more progress is needed.”“[The text] did not reflect either the progress made in the ministerial consultations this week, or the political momentum we’re seeing.”At another press conference, which started at noon on Thursday, the head of the EU delegation echoed Canete, her boss.“The outlook is good,” said Elina Bardram.“There is a lot of hard work, long hours to go, but I remain very confident that the political determination will also be projected in the negotiating rooms and that it will end with a very solid and ground-breaking agreement as we leave Paris,” she said.-Friday, maybe Saturday-Bardram shared the podium with Gao Feng, China's special representative for climate change. He said “success” is possible, but he indicated that the conference may be extended beyond Friday, the last officially scheduled day.“I remain optimistic. Let's see on Friday, or maybe Saturday, we will get there. I think we will get it,” said Gao.“We’re still at the most difficult part of the negotiations. We have still 48 hours, maybe a little bit longer. So it’s not a surprise that we’re still facing all those difficult issues.”Canete said three elements are “essential” for a “robust” agreement: a long-term goal; a review cycle, which allows for ambition to be scaled up over time; and “transparency and accountability.”He’s also being urged to pursue other issues.-Shipping and aviation-Sitting next to him at the press conference, Italian MEP Giovanni La Via said the aviation and shipping sectors should be specifically mentioned.“I want to insist on the necessary inclusion of international aviation and shipping in the Paris deal. So far, no effort is requested from them,” noted La Via, a member of the EU Parliament's largest group, the centre-right EPP.“Those two sectors could represent up to 40 percent of all global emissions by 2050 if they are left unregulated, according to a study published by the European Parliament service. I ask Miguel [Canete] to push for it. We, as members of the parliament, strongly request to reconsider the text.”Canete said aviation and shipping “cannot be off the radar,” but cited a different estimate.“Their emissions are growing significantly, and account for as much, will account for as much, as one third of all global emissions in 2050 if nothing is done,” he said.-Negotiating tactics-The EU Commissioner could not guarantee the two sectors will be in the final deal, amid speculation the EU may trade them in exchange for concessions in other areas.He also wouldn’t say the EU would walk away from an agreement if it doesn’t get the five-year review cycle.“The speeches in the public plenary are one, but when you go to the negotiating table are others. Because the rooms have different moods, you know. In the negotiating tables we are finding compromises,” he noted.“We worked through the night to make substantial improvements to the text. We hope the new version we will receive later today will address the gaps that we’ve identified.”That new version is due Thursday afternoon, but had not been published by 6.51pm.“We have another long day and night ahead of us,” Canete said earlier on Thursday.

House votes to boost enforcement of trade deals, block climate change provisions-By Matthew Daly, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – DEC 11,15-YAHOONEWS

WASHINGTON - As negotiators in Paris worked to finalize a global agreement on climate change, the Republican-controlled House on Friday approved a bill that would block trade deals from being used to cut greenhouse gas emissions.The bill was approved on a 256-158 vote. Twenty-four Democrats joined with 232 Republicans to support the bill.Opponents, mostly Democrats, said the bill sends the wrong message as U.S. diplomats meet in Paris with more than 190 nations to finalize an agreement to reduce man-made carbon emissions and adapt to rising seas and increasingly extreme weather.Rep. Sander Levin, a Democrat, said the climate provision was inserted by Republicans who oppose action on climate change. Many Republicans in Congress question whether human activities are contributing to global warming."The Republican Party of the United States may be the only political party anywhere in denial about climate change," Levin said. "That denial is why this provision ... on climate is before us."Supporters said the wide-ranging bill would beef up enforcement of U.S. trade agreements and help prevent counterfeit goods from entering the country. The bill also would make permanent a moratorium that prevents states from taxing access to the Internet.Rep. Kevin Brady, the Republican chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, said the bill "will level the playing field for Americans and also make it easier for them to compete in a global marketplace."The provision on climate change ensures greater oversight of executive-branch negotiators who work on international trade agreements, Brady said."Trade agreements should not include provisions on immigration or greenhouse gas emissions," he said, noting that there are other ways for officials to address immigration and global climate change.House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the bill ensures that U.S. trade laws are enforced, that trade is streamlined and efficient and that no trade agreement will change U.S. immigration policy or expand access to visas to enter the country.Democrats complained that the bill stripped important protections against currency manipulation and eliminated penalties against countries that engage in human trafficking.
