Climate change threatens global financial crises and long-term declines in wealth unless world leaders urgently seal a deal to limit it, the head of the Bank of England said on Tuesday.

[TOKYO] Tokyo shares opened 1.55 per cent higher on Wednesday, recovering some of the previous day's losses following a mixed lead from US equity markets as investors await trading cues from a Bank of Japan business confidence survey this week.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange gained 263.0 points to 17,193.84 in opening deals.
