I think your last point is more on point, but at the same time if maintaining the planets tropical forests is a necessity for the survival of all then can it truly be said to belong to the countries where it grows? The again, the same argument might be applied to any vital natural resource, like oil say, or cobalt etc.

Who does the environment belong to exactly?

Australia's coal reserves are a similar issue. Our government acts like it's our right to dig it up and export it, but that act is putting the world at danger through its contribution to global warming.

Imagine if Europe would say: we open the doors to everybody, come over, leave the forest at peace. But no, if people have to feed themselves where they are, guess how their priorities lie!

Much of the clear-felling in the Amazon occurs to create grazing land. The locals see little of the beef. Most of it is sold to hamburger chains in North America.

The native peoples of the Amazon region are the one's suffering the consequence of logging, ranching, and having their traditional lands doused in glyphosate from the air - a practice which has only increased since the Brazilian health department concluded that gylphosate products did not cause cancer in humans, only in laboratory animals.

They need one of them modular nuclear reactors. Good for 30 years. Just shop around. Delivery to any city.

Like I said, "think tanks", "public policy" groups that are nothing more than PR are first against the wall.
