Hollande, activists gear up for critical climate talks

French President Francois Hollande was meeting with environmental groups Saturday, pushing for an ambitious global deal to reduce man-made emissions blamed for global warming. Officials announced that nearly 1,000 individuals have been banned from entering France amid preparations for the conference and post-attack high security. The talks in the Elysee Palace come as President Barack Obama, the leaders of China, Russia and more than 140 other countries prepare to converge on Paris to launch two weeks of high-stakes talks. Leaders and climate negotiators from 196 countries meeting at the U.N. talks Nov. 30-Dec. 11 will try to hash out the broadest, most lasting deal to date to slow global warming.
