The annual U.N. climate change meetings are always all about money. The 19th Conference of the Parties (COP-19) of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Warsaw is no exception.

Reason Science Correspondent Ronald Bailey looks into the claims and how much money may be involved.
