South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Nation & World -

KA­TOW­ICE, Poland — Thou­sands of peo­ple from around the world marched Satur­day through the Pol­ish city that’s host­ing this year’s U.N. cli­mate talks, de­mand­ing that gov­ern­ments take tougher ac­tion to curb global warm­ing.

The “March for Cli­mate” pro­test­ers in­cluded farm­ers from Latin Amer­ica, stu­dents from the U.S. and fam­i­lies from Europe.

In­side the U.N. meet­ing, ne­go­tia­tors were con­clud­ing the first week of talks, which are fo­cused on fi­nal­iz­ing the Paris rule­book that de­ter­mines how sig­na­to­ries to the 2015 deal re­port green­house gas emis­sions. In a re­cent re­port, the In­ter­gov­ern­men­tal Panel on Cli­mate Change said dras­tic ac­tion is needed to achieve the ac­cord’s tar­get of keep­ing global warm­ing be­low 2.7 de­grees Fahren­heit.
