"The Heart of a New Global Climate Deal Begins To Take Shape"

"New analyses are giving mixed grades to the most recent greenhouse gas emissions targets submitted to the United Nations, with particularly low marks for the pledge from South Korea.

With the targets from South Korea, China, Iceland and Serbia all submitted at the end of June, the United Nations now has plans from 44 countries including the 28-member European Union for cutting carbon. Those and others expected to arrive over the next few months will form the heart of a new global agreement to tackle climate change over the coming decades.

But it's becoming increasingly clear that, collectively, the cuts won't be enough, at least initially, to avert catastrophic climate change."
