Obama sees Cancun meet as advance in climate change fight
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama told Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Saturday that the Cancun climate conference had built on the Copenhagen accord and advances the effort to address climate change, the White House said.
The White House summarized a phone call between Obama and Calderon after almost 200 countries agreed on Saturday to modest steps to combat climate change, including a fund to help poor nations, but they put off tough decisions on cutting greenhouse gas emissions until next year.
