US Asks Brazil For 'Immediate' Action On Amazon

Source: International Business Times

By AFP News on April 17 2021 5:15 AM

The United States on Friday welcomed Brazil's renewed promise to end illegal deforestation but urged immediate action to protect the Amazon, a major factor in global climate change.

Far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, a longtime scourge of environmentalists, in a letter to President Joe Biden ahead of next week's US-led climate summit voiced support for a previous Brazilian goal of stopping illegal deforestation by 2030.

Bolsonaro's "recommitment to eliminating illegal deforestation is important," US climate envoy John Kerry wrote on Twitter.

"We look forward to immediate actions and engagement with indigenous populations and civil society so this announcement can deliver tangible results."

Bolsonaro, one of the closest international allies of former US president Donald Trump, said his efforts on deforestation showed "unequivocal" support for Biden's efforts.

7. This Bolsonaro gif is profoundly slimy! I thought his campaign photos were as rotten as you can get!

Seeing him actually showing his gun hands in motion is so obnoxious. He actually seems to think people love to see him waving his imaginary guns around. Some of his suck-ups actually copy him!

Well, gotta balance that with a Trump dance party:

The World Asks for Immediate Action on Guns in the US!

Now that's an article I would read.

We are such hypocrites!

4. In not that many years, climate change will supersede all other issues in global importance.

Save the forests of Brazil.

5. I look at the Amazon

as a kind of planetary engine. We need that area left untouched, and Brazil is the steward of it.

Time to start thinking of climate change and how we are going to deal with it for everyone's good, for the planet's good.

So much to deal with...I wonder what Brazil asked for in return. Money probably.
