Indonesia is a developing country so this begs the question WHY. Any reduction of CO2 output will reduce already poor people to total poverty and death. Development needs CO2 output in extra energy production.
Why do the alarmists keep going on about deforestation? NASA research has shown that within ten years rainforest regrows to such an extent as to be unrecognizable from space compared to untouched forest. When rainforests are looked at, compared with forest total age and tree lifetime then many tens of tree generations have passed compared to total forest age. Trees die and their seeds grow. It is important that the local people get some income from the forest to pull them out of poverty.
Wow, I had no idea things were this bad: ANY reduction of Co2 emissions (solar panels, wind farms, fuel-efficient cooking stoves, LED lights?) will not only make poor people, like, totally poor (for reals) but actually kill them. At which point the poverty would not be so much of a problem, one might think. Totally.
