EU on climate change

BRUSSELS: EU leaders were struggling on Friday to agree how to fund the fight against climate change, with poorer eastern European nations urging their more affluent western neighbours to bear the lion’s share of the burden. The European leaders, on the final day of a two-day summit in Brussels, agreed that developing nations would need 100 billion euros a year by 2020 to tackle global warming, but failed to set levels for Europe’s contribution.
