I'm Dave DeForest reporting. The climate summit begins in Paris: U.S. President Barack Obama urged world leaders to "rise to this moment," telling them their progress at the U.N. climate summit in Paris will be measured by "the suffering that is averted and a planet that is preserved."

"We have broken the old arguments for inactionWe have proved that strong economic growth and a safer environment no longer have to conflict with one anotherThey can work in concert with one another, and that should give us hope." 

The summit participants are trying to reach an agreement on measures to keep global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-Industrial Revolution levels.
