After 16 days of meetings and negotiations, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) summit in Madrid ended with little to show.  It was a conference of great expectations and few accomplishments.

The main agenda item was to add final details to Article 6 of the Paris climate treaty on international carbon trading. This is the most technical article and one certain to be contentious since it asks nations to do things they would otherwise prefer not to do. This section is about accounting rules. The topic was postponed until 2020.

The BBC has selected some quotes from leaders, experts and activists. Getting to yes. Is it possible in the future?
