COP21: What happens if climate conference fails?

Negotiators from 196 countries are trying to reach a deal at the climate change conference in Paris to curb global warming.

A draft deal was reached last week but key issues still remain, including a long-term goal to reduce emissions from burning coal, oil and gas.

BBC environment correspondent Matt McGrath asks what happens if the conference fails to reach an agreement.
