EcoView: Ecoterrorism from Ecuador

Pay us or we’ll shoot you in the lungs.

That’s pretty much the message to the planet from Ecuador this week.

Perhaps Canada ought to take a page from that playbook. We’ve got over a third of the world’s boreal forest, one fifth of the world’s temperate rainforest, and a tenth of the total global forest hostage, er, cover. Maybe we ought to take an ax to Stanley Park unless the province hands over a suitcase full of cash to Vancouver City Hall.

Paying nations to not cut down their own forests is bad policy, bad economics, and bad ethics.
