Economic Alchemy
Carlos Feu Alvim

Human activities influence greenhouse gas emissions in a very fundamental manner.
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change stands out among the international instruments that aim at meeting the challenges of global environmental problems.
Brazil, by means has proposed elements for the Protocol being negotiated for signing in Kyoto, Japan, at the Third Conference of the Parties to the Convention, which will take place next December.
The Brazilian initiative is seeking to contribute towards the correct formulation and solution of problems that arise from the conciliation of social and economic development with the circumstances that lead to global environmental problems, in an equitable way for all countries.
