Senior Obama administration officials this week trumpeted bilateral climate change talks with the Chinese in Beijing — one of the world's most polluted cities.
The United States on Monday challenged China's view of how to split the burden of curbing carbon emissions, saying the rich-poor divide in past climate agreements has no place in a future pact to fight global warming.
The agreements reached at a global conference this month to help poor countries cope with climate change exceeded expectations but need to be followed up, the U.N.'s top climate official said Monday.
U.S. climate change envoy Todd Stern said recent talks with China were "positive," but also said the two nations "talked a lot and agreed on little."
"What we have now is a text that, while not perfect, is certainly a good basis for moving forward," said chief U.S. negotiator Todd Stern.
