Experts say it is difficult to believe Brazil’s change of heart
Reuters talked to several specialists about Brazil’s position, who along with more than a hundred countries, adhered to a plan to halt deforestation by 2030. Unanimously, all of them are skeptical.
The researcher from INPE, Luciana Gatti, recalled the last three years increase in Amazon deforestation. For her, even if Brazil has the means to reach the goal, it may be too late for some regions. Mainly for those where the forest has been under greater pressure in recent times.
Climatologist Carlos Nobre also said it’s complicated to believe in President Bolsonaro, who didn’t go to Scotland like the leaders of Russia and China. “It’s hard to believe that the president has changed his historic political position [on environmental issues].”
