ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrive at the climate change talks in France on Monday. More than 150 heads of state and government will attend the talks at a sprawling complex north of Paris. World leaders will launch an ambitious attempt to hold back the earth's rising temperatures, urging each other to find common cause in two weeks of bargaining meant to steer the global economy away from dependence on fossil fuels. They arrive at United Nations climate change talks in Paris armed with promises and accompanied by high expectations. After decades of struggling negotiations marked by the failure of a previous summit in Copenhagen six years ago, some form of landmark agreement appears all but assured by mid-December.
