Commenting on the conclusion of the UN climate talks in Lima, Sara Cowan on behalf of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland:
So, the talks are over, as is my time in Lima. It’s just a pity that I am unable to report a more positive outcome.

The governments who gathered in Lima will want to say they had a success here, but the only real success is that they managed to settle on a deal at all.
