"Lula risks losing timing in Copenhagen"

Analysis in liberal Folha de S. Paulo (11-4) by columnist Marcelo
Leite: "Yesterday [President Lula] lost a good chance of speaking
on the substance of global warming and global leadership. The
Copenhagen agreement, which should be done in December to replace
the Kyoto Protocol starting in 2012, is on the brink of failure.
The last round of negotiations in Barcelona is going from bad to
worse.....It was an appropriate moment for Lula to show innovative
leadership that foreigners have attributed to him.....Brazil is
following the example of the U.S., which has not been able to reach
a common stance due to domestic political difficulties. The
difference is that in the U.S. there is disagreement in the
Legislative, not in the Executive branch......Brazil may certainly
contribute to 'untying the knots' in Copenhagen. It only depends
on Lula."
