#Regram #RG @greenmatters:
Norway has taken a big step to help Gabon, a small nation in Central Africa, fight back against deforestation: Over the next 10 years, the country will spend $150 million to make sure the rainforest — which makes up much of Gabon — doesn’t need to succumb to economical pressures to either sell timber or clear the forest for development.
Instead, Norway will spend $10 for every ton of carbon captured by the rainforest; though it’s likely less profitable than deforestation would be for the country, it helps protect the land that Gabon values. Norway has introduced similar programs of “performance-based forest payments” in countries like Indonesia and Brazil, but Gabon is unique in that the program can help save forests that are still standing — rather than just slowing down the process of deforestation.

@mincchek Well, after 3 full centuries of exploiting land, recourses and people that dont belong to Norway nor Denmark, this is the least they could do. After colonization the mighty countries introduced the world to capitalizm - that turns out to be modern form of even worst exploatation and subjugation. Maybe you can focus on that, because until we dont face the facts that lead us to where we are today, we will just continue to spiral down the black hole we created long time ago (we = humanity)
