Story
Tagline
Freelance journalist based in Peru and covering Latin America, especially environmental issues.
Introduction
From gang warfare in Central America to hallucinogenic tourism in the Amazon, and from devastating drought in northern Mexico to the Andes' vanishing glaciers, I cover it all.
Bragging rights
Climber, trekker and surfer. Nothing makes me happier than being in the backcountry, whether it is the Andes, Amazon or a remote windswept Pacific beach.

Gracias Simeon por el post. Excelente análisis. Está claro que la Alianza Pacífica será el golpe mortal al ALBA y que, como en casi todas las esferas politicas y económicas, la retórica del Hugo Chávez fue su brillo y su sombra a la vez, por no existir coherencia entre la palabra y la acción concreta. Ahora a Venezuela le tocará negociar en precarias condiciones con esos cuatro países que sin ser los gigantes, están marcando la pauta y haciéndole el contrapeso a Brasil. Un saludo, Marianela Balbi

Already a top emitter, Brazil could spew hundreds of millions more tons of gases blamed for climate change, such as CO2 and methane, as it floods Amazon forest for hydro power, new research suggests.
