World Leaders See Climate Deal as `Floor, Not Ceiling,’ Ban Says

World leaders agree more “immediate, concrete and cooperative actions” are necessary to limit global temperatures from rising beyond 2 degrees Celsius, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Ban in New York, French President Francois Hollande hinted that countries may pledge additional climate aid beyond the $10 billion that has already been announced.

Hollande added that a final climate agreement slated to be reached in Paris this December must have flexibility, saying it must include a five-year review mechanism for national pledges on limiting greenhouse gas emissions.
