Gloves off as UN climate-rescue talks reach showdown

Activists press attendees on the issue of fossil fuels in Paris on December 9, 2015, as the critically important COP21 climate summit just 48 hours from a deadlineRich and poor nations launched a flurry of well-drilled diplomatic punches Wednesday in a final Paris showdown aimed at securing an elusive accord to save mankind from disastrous global warming. The 195-nation UN talks in the French capital have been billed as the last chance to avert the worst consequences of climate change: increasingly severe drought, floods and storms, as well as island-engulfing rising seas. After nine days of tense negotiations, French Foreign Minister and conference host Laurent Fabius released a draft of the final accord on Wednesday to be used as the basis for a frenetic final 48 hours of talks.
