India's environment minister said that the country could not have high economic growth and a rapid rise in carbon emissions now that the nation was the number three emitter after China and the United States.

Jairam Ramesh's comments come as negotiators from nearly 200 governments meet in the northern Chinese port city of Tianjin. The U.N. talks aim to reach agreement on what should follow the current phase of the Kyoto Protocol, the key treaty on climate change, which expires in 2012.

Indian per-capita emissions are still low but demand for energy is rising as the middle-class buys more cars, TVs and better housing. Much of that energy comes from coal oil and gas, the main sources for planet-warming carbon dioxide.

Unlike most developed and many developing countries, Brazil's energy sector contributes little to the country's greenhouse gas emissions. Unsustainable land use and forestry contribute most.",

Brazil's track record in renewable energies is an example to many. Brazil is the world's largest producer and also consumer of ethanol, which it has added to gasoline since the one thousand, nine hundred and seventys.
