Global Warming Deal Takes Shape as UN Envoys Shuffle Options

Updated on

A global agreement to fight climate change began to take shape after the United Nations published a new draft of a deal that envoys from 194 nations are working to seal at a December summit in Paris.

The 88-page document, posted online by the UN, is intended to more clearly organize the options that negotiators have grappled with for months. At a June round of discussions in Bonn, Germany, U.S. envoy Daniel Reifsnyder and Algerian diplomat Ahmed Djoghlaf were asked to condense the paper to get the talks moving.
