Help Brazil Stop Amazon rainforest deforestation

Amazon rainforest deforestation booming as satellites show 740km cleared in 30 days. More than 200,000 hectares of Amazon forest have been destroyed in just nine months. This is horrific! What is happening in Brazil Don’t Stay in Brazil. It’s our lung and we all need to do everything we can to save it. Read more: shortly.cc/ZeQK

We must stop the deforestation of the rainforest and we must help Jair Bolsonaro and other rain forest countries to protect their forests.

I believe the fastest way to do this is actually to pay countries a yearly dividend fee to preserve the rainforests. All countries in the world should pay a sum to protect the forest we all depend on. We could calculate this by measure how much CO2 emission we save by not cutting down the forest. It's unfair that only oil-countries like Saudi Arabia is getting rich but the only way for forest-rich countries to get rich is to cut the forest down. We must make it profitable to protect nature.

Agree on this climate idea campaign if you think this is a way forward and please comment with your thoughts.

Carbon taxes are a load of rubbish. Companies can just spend money to offset their pollution without actually doing anything to change it, and the potential for fraud is large. We need real, concrete action to protect the rainforests.

Talk about taxing carbon and a complementary _carbon sequestration dividend_ - we need to adjust the C tax and dividend values so that it's profitable to keep rainforests (if we had any in Europe!) and either encourage gobal (Brazil) adoption of the system, OR impose system by proxy via tarrifs? Could that be made to work?

Thanks Ingmar. It’s crucial the world and the Brazilians understand what a great treasure we have in the rain forests
