Sounding breathless, Sheinbaum pronounced himself greatly relieved. The day before, with much different emotions, he had watched PLO chairman Yasser Arafat's televised speech at the special session of the U.N.

Arafat's current approach can be compared to a military campaign. First he rallied his troops at Algiers.

The Earth Summit, once heralded as a sweeping global effort to attack the planet's environmental ills, will open in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday amid vastly reduced expectations.
