globeandmail.com: Bali on verge of climate deal

globeandmail.com: Bali on verge of climate deal: "After two weeks of often-bitter wrangling, Bali conference delegates were on the verge of an agreement Friday on the parameters for tougher action on global warming.
The delegates from 190 countries were expected to ratify a compromise agreement this morning, setting the stage for two years of intense negotiations to settle the details on drastic reductions in the world's greenhouse gas emissions.
Despite the compromise between Europe and the United States, some aspects of the agreement were not yet finalized last night, and environmentalists warned that the situation was still volatile. They cautioned that the agreement could still fall apart when it is reviewed by all countries today."
