Climate change in Brazil

http://www.scidev.net/en/policy-briefs/brazil-climate-change-a-country-profile.html

The tropical rain forest in the Amazon and the Pantanal wetland are of particular concern. Some studies show that, as temperatures rise, the Amazon rain forest could become dryer, making spontaneous fires more frequent. Those fires would release more greenhouse gases increasing their concentrations in the atmosphere, in turn raising temperatures further. There is also concern that coral reefs along Brazilian coastlines could suffer from the effects of climate change.

This article is about Brazils climate change policy, and how they will negotiate with other countries to resolve this problem. Brazils presidante Lula da Silva wants all countries to tell how much in percentage they plan on cutting back, and then we can move on from there. This was said at the G8 summit (Brazil being a big player in these summits because the are one of the worlds most fastest developing country across the board).
