deadline set by the paris agreement. so what is behind the dead log at the climate talks earlier i put that question to you correspondent sonia found a car in madrid. that's right i mean talks you have really hit a wall they've been dragging on the participants is still very far apart on key technical issues now one of the matter aims of the summit has been to kind of hammer out the final rules on how to kind of implement the 2015 paris climate treaty which is set to take effect next year and the talks of very much bogged down in very deep technical rouses a lot of political wrangling that a nation's well being accused of just watching out for the national interests and not really looking at the bigger picture so what exactly can the delegates do at this point to move forward. so there are 2 main sticking points that need to be resolved one revolves around global carbon markets now this carbon trading
mechanism is important for some countries and how they plan to reduce. their greenhouse gas emissions but the problem is that you know these schemes are often seen as a scam because they can avoid making real cuts in emissions the other kind of potential deal breaker. loss and damage that this is about providing compensation to countries that are affected by climate change impacts and destruction that cannot be prevented or adapted to and this is primarily a question of finance and we're hearing that the u.s. is kind of leading really leading on this in blocking progress on any kind of provisions that would hold it and other developed countries liable to kind of pay for losses that could run into billions of dollars so that that those are the 2 main kind of sticking points here so is this conference essentially a failure. too early to say. well at this stage we really don't know with you know negotiators will keep at the
table and wait till they have an accord or will they walk away without an argument that that is still unclear but you know there are many campaign groups and n.g.o.s who have been really piling on the pressure on delegates in recent days to take concrete action to move fast on these talks they've been holding protests and many of them are really angry and frustrated some of them all this summit to feel ready because they say it's failed to reach its overarching goal of raising a bishan which is to you know get countries to to put more ambitious pledges on the table to further cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the reduce the greenhouse gas emissions which they say is absolutely required if the world is to avoid dangerous levels of warming. in madrid thank you so much. now to some of the other stories making news around the world the u.s. and china have reached a truce in their long trade war washington has agreed to scrap $160000000000.00 worth of chinese imports in exchange for china buying more u.s.
