U.S., China Leaning Toward Possible Climate Deal

A U.S. official says talks between President Barack Obama and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao have moved a "step forward" toward a possible climate deal.

Both leaders directed their negotiators to work on a possible deal after meeting for nearly an hour Friday at the U.N. climate conference in Copenhagen.

The senior Obama administration official spoke on condition of anonymity to more freely characterize the talks.

Obama and Wen discussed emissions targets, financing and transparency.

China has been criticized during the summit for not offering stronger carbon emissions targets and for resisting international monitoring of its actions.

    is that avon calling again? oooo, I see here that you voted and support the main culprit responsible for killing millions of innocent babies by aborting them. OMG!!!! Jesus knows I'm for him which is LIFE and he plainly tells us that MURDERERS who kill innocent life will no inherit the kingdom of heaven. They will be cast into the lake of fire which burns forever! You need to know that Lavon. Jesus said it and that settles it. Who's side are you on? or can you differentiate between what murder and life is? how sad it will be for millions who support this evil person in the white house. They all will suffer greatly for the decisions they made voting him in. Oh, Lavon, don't even mention the name Jesus or heaven because you have no relationship with either of the two. Repent now and turn to Jesus before it's too late.

    Lavon, you supported a president that wants free abortions. You know, murdering unborn children. You voted for him and will live with supporting it. Global Warming.....bwahahahahahah, you believe in that? Any credibility you might have had, just went down, just like the temperature and your president...

    L avon, Anti Christ....Bwahahahaaawww!! I'm not coming to your snake oil party. Just keep on slithering like the lying snake you are. Tea is good for you. It has antioxidants and keeps you awake. You're asleep and sick in the head avon. Don't try to pull others in, they aren't with you my scared little demon. I'm not ashamed of God nor mentioning his name Jesus Christ. I don't disagree with everyone. you're grasping for air falling down into your black hole. You can have life and have it more abundantly if you'll accept Jesus into your heart and lean to his word. But, you reject him and his holy bible. If you continue down the road you're on, you're going to be so sorry with gnashing of teeth forever and ever. I forgive you as always, I hope you find God and allow him to change your life. You will not go to heaven as you are right now. Because you reject Christ.

    Avon, the sad thing is you know very little about the bible and what God says about people who reject Him and who are ashamed of Him. you are a little antichrist and you're scrambling to come up with anything that's good. Grasping, LOL at yourself. I don't make the laws we should live by God does in the spirit through mighty men like Moses by which, wow, you can learn something here, our law system was based on, the ten commandments. Tea Party? that is simply REAL Americans standing up for their constitution, freedoms and rights as a nation under God. One nation under God by the people for the people idiot. What part of this do you not get? daaaaa. you skirt around the truth you lost soul. You and your other lib friends, which are few compared to the rest of the 84%, don't care what the bible instructs us to live by and you will suffer the consequences. God said it and He stands behind what He says. He will not be mocked as you're that doing so well. Lavon could be a man of God one day

    What are yaw having? A peeing contest! This isn't the same country our grandparents made. Until we get somebody with some guts and a back bone to stand for us it won't be. I think we should all put our names in a hat and draw. Whoever gets there number picked would have to be pres. Some would have to be congressman. Then you would have working men and women in office. Not just politicians.

    L AVON Calling? Michael Steele (RNC chairman) is a leader with great potential to be our president. He represents everything you and the rest of the antichrists don't. I just remembered you hate seeing the name of God or Jesus. antichrist, that's what you are. full of lies. liars believe lies and other liars. Palin at least tells the truth and doesn't have a bunch of lying drama mess following her around like your Obamination does. She could very well be a good running mate or president. Remember, Obama doesn't make all the decisions, his cabinet, the lib's in congress does and once in a great while, the joint cheifs of staff which is crucial to our survival nitwit.

    Wrong again Lavon, you are a wealth of dissinformation, just like Data man, no data; It was 35% well above where Obama will be by the end of next year. No Lavon, I didn't. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/political_updates/president_bush_job_approval
