Apec leaders drop climate target
World leaders meeting in Singapore have
said it will not be possible to reach a
climate change deal ahead of next
month's UN conference in Denmark.
After a two-day Asia-Pacific summit,
they vowed to work towards an
"ambitious outcome" in Copenhagen.
But the group dropped a target to halve
greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, which
was outlined in an earlier draft.
Leaders also vowed to pursue a new
strategy for growth after the world's
worst economic crisis in decades.
