Brazil takes the undisputable lead on climate change

BRAZIL AS CLIMATE LEADER – DO THE MATH



from Jim Garrison and Emilia Queiroga

Important fundraising appeal for the P2P Foundation - help us stay running

This is why we achieved a first selection for a EU FP7 grant, which will fund 3 researchers as of march 2010; and why Phoebe is now leading… Continue
