Merkel says G7 committed to limiting global temperature rise

KRUEN, Germany, June 8 (Reuters) - The Group of Seven (G7) countries are committed to a goal of limiting the rise in average global temperatures to two degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) compared to pre-industrial levels, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday.

Speaking at the conclusion of a two-day G7 summit, Merkel added that the leading industrialised countries were also committed to raising $100 billion in annual climate financing by 2020 from public and private sources.
