As the deadline looms for a new global climate deal, Make it last gives you the latest from Paris.

Late last night, BBC summarized the current status of the new climate agreement – with two days left of negotiations in Paris.

    • Overnight negotiations proceed as two-week UN summit approaches Friday deadline for a climate deal
    • The first ‘clean’ draft of the agreement text was debated at length in a plenary session on Wednesday evening
    • It runs to 29 pages (down from 43) and has lost 75% of its bracketed, contested points – but big decisions remain
    • Major sticking points are the overall temperature goal, a climate finance plan and the demarcation of developed versus developing nations
