"At Copenhagen, Both Rich and Developing Nations Offer Concessions"
"COPENHAGEN -- As President Obama prepared to visit the historic climate conference here, there were signs Wednesday of a break in the impasse between rich and developing nations. The United States and Japan agreed to make major contributions to the developing world to keep prospects of a deal alive. And the leader of a bloc of African nations said they would accept a smaller -- though still sizable -- package of financial aid, in return for going along with an agreement." Juliet Eilperin and David A. Fahrenthold report for the Washington Post Dec. 17, 2009.
