WASHINGTON (AFP) US President Barack Obama sought to boost hopes of a landmark deal at the Copenhagen climate summit, as a new report showed the crisis facing the planet is deeper than previously thought.

Obama, hosting the leader of key developing nation India at the White House a week after returning from top global polluter China, said recent progress meant the world was "one step closer to a successful outcome in Copenhagen."

Countries must "reach a strong operational agreement that will confront the threat of climate change while serving as a stepping-stone to a legally binding treaty," he told a press conference with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

In a joint statement, Singh and Obama spoke of their hopes for a "comprehensive" deal at the December 7-18 United Nations climate conference in Copenhagen.

3. India and China balked at the G8 summit over climate change.
Right now it's just talk.

And it's a diplomatic situation, so of course both sides are going to speak out of both sides (of their mouths).
