"French minister: 2015 climate deal must avoid US Congress"
Associated Press writers, Sylvie Corbet and Karl Ritter, recently reported on this:
"If negotiators follow his plan, that would exclude an international treaty that has legally-binding limits on greenhouse gas emissions - something some countries still insist on but which would have no chance of being ratified by the Republican-controlled Congress. 'We must find a formula which is valuable for everybody and valuable for the U.S. without going to the Congress,' said Fabius, who will host the U.N. climate summit in Paris in December where the new agreement is supposed to be adopted."
