KATOWICE, Poland (AP) The Latest on the two-week U.N. climate meeting in Poland (all times local): 7:10 p.m. Environmental activists are naming Saudi Arabia and Brazil as "fossils of the day" at this year's U.N. climate conference. The Climate Action Network awarded them the dubious honor Wednesday, citing Saudi delegates' efforts to oppose ambitious efforts to curb global warming. The group said the Brazil would share the booby prize because of its incoming president's refusal to host the next round of talks. It also cited Jair Bolsonaro's threat to allow deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, a key sponge for global greenhouses gas emissions.
