Question description

Brazil provides a fascinating example of contrasting environmental policy. Protecting Brazilian rain forests has been a public interest for those in Brazil and those outside of Brazil for decades. However, rainforests continue to be cut down at an alarming rate. Meanwhile, Brazil is the world's second largest producer of ethanol and maintains much of its energy needs through biofuels. Answer the following: 1) Describe how the two "green issues" are in conflict with each other and what you believe to be the interest groups driving this dynamic? 2) What domestic economic policies might Brazil try to promote with these contradictory environmental policies?
