NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) _ More than 180 nations at the U.N. climate conference agreed Friday to reach a new deal on cutting greenhouse-gas emissions by 2008, after conceding to China that developing nations won't be pressed immediately to reduce emissions.

This annual session had been planned as a procedural meeting, more than a substantive one. But the slow pace in the face of mounting evidence of climate change disappointed environmentalists and others.
