Bonn Climate

Dan Charles reports from Bonn that international negotiations on a treaty to curb global warming got nowhere over the past 10 days. The U.S. and Europe remain deeply divided on how deeply to cut emissions of climate-warming greenhouse gases. Developing nations also still oppose being included in cutbacks. Some negotiators say they're skeptical that national leaders will be able to sign much of anything when they finally meet on a treaty in Kyoto, Japan in December.
