World Bank to Fund Amazon Cattle Plan in Rainforests
The World Bank has lost all credibility in regards to its claim to be a good faith partner in forest conservation. They have become so large, and so entwined with the global growth machine, that they continue to subsidize activities that destroy rainforests. The latest is a massive cattle ranch in the Brazilian “arc of deforestation”. There may be no option but to work for the Bank's dismantlement as they have shown they are not trustworthy environmental custodians.
