Scotland’s leading Roman Catholic has warned the international community that “political wrangling” over climate change is putting the poor at risk.

Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s comments came ahead of high-level United Nations talks on tackling the issue.

He is heading up an international delegation of bishops and climate change experts in New York.

Cardinal O’Brien said Scotland had played its part by setting ambitious emission-cutting targets.
