Coverage on Durban climate deal
For analysis and commentary on the outcome from Durban, you may want to have a look at the following links – we're copying many of them from Carbon Brief’s always useful and interesting daily e-newsletter: see here for more http://www.carbonbrief.org/
For NGO views see: Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and WWF. The Confederation of British Industries comment briefly here while Business Green gives more detailed green business-oriented analysis here.
The full text of the Platform agreement can be found here.
