Description: CANBERRA, Australia — The United Nations climate chief says technological advances that have reduced prices and improved efficiency of renewable energy have also helped transform the politics around climate change since 2009 when an attempt to forge a global deal on reducing greenhouse gas emissions crashed in Copenhagen. Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, told reporters in Australia on Thursday that countries are ahead of schedule in negotiating a landmark global agreement on curbing greenhouse gases that can be adopted at a Paris summit in December. She says technological advances are the first of several factors that have created "a very changed political environment." Figueres says the price of solar panels has plummeted 80 percent since Copenhagen. The panels have also become 40 percent more efficient.
