With three days left in their marathon negotiating sessions and 940 decisions still to be made, envoys at the United Nations climate summit are advancing toward a deal that would limit fossil fuel pollution everywhere.

The talks that began Nov. 30 in Paris have drawn a record 150 world leaders and celebrities from Alec Baldwin to Arnold Schwarzenegger in support of the biggest agreement on global warming since 1997.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who is hosting the discussions, is due to release Wednesday a new draft of the deal that aims to narrow the items still in dispute. The biggest stumbling block may be how to differentiate between the actions of developed and developing nations. While friction remains over everything from a $100 billion aid package to when pledges to rein in emissions will be reviewed, even the countries with the biggest demands say they’re working in a spirit of compromise.
