Climate change talks make little headway

Bangkok meeting raises doubts over chances of significant consensus at next annual conference.

    The latest round of discussions on climate change has become bogged down in disagreements and, at times, dismay.

    But the initial optimism turned into frustration as talks proved that the topic was still a fight between rich and poor nations.
