UN talks locked on 'loss and damage'

UN climate negotiations are bogged down in a dispute over who will take legal responsibility for the loss and damage caused by climate change.

The rich countries that caused the problem, and continue to cause the problem MUST accept their liability. Emerging economies that 
are increasing their CO2 emissions are doing so mainly to satisfy demand from wealthy countries for cheap products manufactured offshore to reduce their own carbon footprint. 

The growing inequality between rich and poor must be rebalanced, we cannot shirk our responsibilities.
