News bites: Kerry presses India on climate change, hurdles for US nuke plans and more

The New York Times reports on Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to India.

The Houston Chronicle explains why plans for new nuclear power plants face big hurdles.

The Associated Press checks in on U.S. gasoline prices.
