THE HAGUE (Reuters) - The United States and European Union faced international outrage on Sunday after triggering the collapse of U.N. climate talks and leaving the fight against global warming in disarray.

Activists and poor nations poured scorn on the failure of the gas-guzzling richest countries to stop squabbling over the cost of cleaning the planet and unite to tackle climate change.

"The failure of these talks is a disaster. No words can truly express our anger," said the Friends of the Earth group, describing the chaotic breakdown of the talks on Saturday as a fiasco.
