Rio+20 Earth summit: leaked draft reveals conflict among countries

The latest draft text that 180 governments are expected to sign up to at the end of the Rio+20 Earth summit has been leaked to The Guardian. According to the UN, only about 20% of the wording has been agreed, so with just three days formal negotiating time before world leaders arrive in Brazil on 20 June, and with the most contentious language still in, there is unlikely to be a strong agreement.
