    Yes I agree, Teresa.
    But please make a proposal to the Brazilians how they can better expand their economic system than by deforestation and the expansion of agriculture.

    I like the German initiative. Given all the twisted rhetoric from the new Brazilian pres, I bet it hurt his pocket

    Germany is known worldwide for giving good advice to other countries.
    The German government wanted to send 26 million dollars to Brazil to reduce the deforestation of the Brazilian forest.
    But the Brazilian president has refused and has recommended Angela Merkel (German Chancellor) reforest Germany instead of Brazil. :)

    Brazil accelerated deforestation rate under current president. The way I heard it Germany didn't give the money due to blatant non-compliance likely misuse of funds and witheld this year's incentive. The fund was witheld not refused.

    Yes, Teresa, but main reason to keep back the money is that Brazilian president doesn't want to stop deforestation due to increase Brazilian economy.
    German government wants to save nature in foreign countries. In Germany it is very difficult due to industrialization of Germany
