One week to save the planet and Putin vs Erdogan (part 2)

It's the halfway point of what many have dubbed a "last chance" summit to stop the planet from overheating. After the failure of Copenhagen in 2009, the heat is on at the climate change summit in Paris. Meanwhile, Turkey felt a chill at said summit - when its president was snubbed by his Russian counterpart. Vladimir Putin refused a private meeting over the shooting down last week of a Russian jet at the Syrian border by the Turks.
