Just for looks

Rio-based center-right daily O Globo writes: "It is as bad for
Brazil to land in Copenhagen without a target for reducing its
emissions as to set an unrealistic one... There is the fear that
this might happen though, based on the strange suppression of the
internal debate of the issue by the Ministry of Agriculture - the
sector that directly and indirectly contributes the most to the
emissions. This raises questions about the quality of the decision
to be made." (Nov 5, page 38)
