Conserving forests: REDDy and waiting | The Economist - THESE are critical times for trees. In some places—like Peru, where police and indigenous folk are doing battle—the future of the forests is being determined by lethal force. Guyana is seeking money from the rich world to help keep most of its land forested. In other places, eco-warriors merely have to hack their way through a thicket of arcane technicalities. One such place is Bonn, where diplomats from most countries in the world are haggling over financial incentives to keep trees intact.War-war in Peru is more gripping than jaw-jaw in Bonn, but the latter affects the earth’s future too. The talks are working on details of an idea known as Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD): it aims to fold the saving of trees into a wider UN effort to cool the world.
