As for Argentina and Brazil, Schellnhuber said he is aware of the opposition and of its strength, and skeptical about any big progress on climate issues in South America for the near future. For example, Petrobras keeps drilling for oil, which they want to sell on the world market, and that will not change soon.
For the time being, Schellnhuber said, some of the important countries must go ahead, showing others through "living by example" that green economy works, and pays off in the longer run. Change will come through "island solutions" spreading across the globe.
The event at which Schellnhuber spoke, was a one-day "Renewable Energy Finance" seminar of the bank-run Frankfurt School of Finance, attended mostly by representatives of the solar and wind branches, as well as lawyers -- for an entrance fee of 500 euros each.
