A new draft climate agreement that was being considered by world leaders at the UN summit in Copenhagen dropped a previous 2010 deadline for achieving a legally binding treaty to fight global warming. The latest draft obtained by The Associated Press on Friday does not have a deadline. Like previous drafts it refers to "deep cuts" in global emissions of greenhouse gases but does not give exact figures.
