News from the Natural World: Europeans allowed to cut down their forests, Indonesians not allowed to cut down theirs. In a rather hypocritical display, European humans have exhibited severe animosity towards Indonesian humans. They are furious that the Indonesians are chopping down all of their forests and replacing them with crops which lead to economic gain. The European humans say that the Indonesians can’t do this, that it is wrong and they should stop. They say that they must protect the wildlife and the animals so that little Quentin and Priscilla can go and see Orang-utans on their gap years. But the Indonesian humans say that it is not that simple. Why don’t you wealthy countries pay us not to cut down our forests? You’ve got enough money, you’ve all got 2 cars, big houses, Netflix, laptops for children and iPads for toddlers. We want to develop just as you have, we want to go on international holidays and reap the rewards that you have. But if we can do that without destroying our natural resources for profit then please tell us how?
