I agree, it is all about making the first step. However, regardless of huge efforts to curb the Amazon Forest's devastation, there is no much cooperation from the International Financial Community, instead there is a lot of local and international political issues, which does not allowed the necessary Funds and manpower to advance towards that specific goal. A goal that humanity should be aware and make quickly rational decisions.
Anyhow, like Paulo Moutinho, coordinator at the Environmental Research Institute of the Amazon, said in the article: "It's a positive first step, but only a drop in the ocean."
