DURBAN, South Africa — Signs of progress emerged Saturday at international climate change negotiations as thousands took to the streets urging global leaders to step up their efforts. The demonstration came one day after China indicated it was considering joining a “legally binding” deal to reduce emissions. At the same time, the conference also received a draft text that offered different options for negotiators for achieving a $100-billion-per-year green fund by 2020 to help developing countries tackle the causes and impacts of global warming.
