Naderev Sano (C), the Philippines' Climate Commissioner, talks with the media as he begins a voluntary fast during the 19th conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP19) at the National Stadium in Warsaw November 12, 2013. Sano began a fast on Monday in protest at a lack of action on global warming that he blamed for fuelling a super typhoon that has killed an estimated 10,000 people in his country. Delegates from almost 200 nations held three minutes' silence to mourn victims of typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful storms ever recorded, at the start of Nov. 11-22 talks to plan a U.N. deal in 2015 to slow climate change. Sano said he would be fasting until "a meaningful outcome is in sight". REUTERS/Kacper Pempel (POLAND - Tags: POLITICS ENVIRONMENT BUSINESS DISASTER)
