NoREDDpapers1cover.gif“No REDD Papers, Volume I is a must read for all who seek to know the truth about this mercantilist tool called REDD. It is also highly recommended for those who believe that policies to fight the current climate chaos must see the people and Mother Earth, and not merely see trees as commodities for cash and carbon speculation.”

Your future, our climate and Indigenous Peoples are threatened by a devious false solution to climate change called REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation).

Unfortunately, industrialized countries, oil companies and other climate criminals that are trashing the planet have absolutely no intention of drastically cutting greenhouse gas emissions necessary to truly address climate change.

Instead, along with the World Bank and the United Nations, they are concocting this REDD scheme to take over the forests of the world as supposed sponges for their pollution. In the process, they are evicting the very people who have conserved those forests for millennia. REDD may be the biggest land grab of all time, cause genocide and replace real forests with massive industrial tree plantations that could even include genetically engineered trees. Read this book so together we can resist this new form of colonialism and privatization of the air we breathe, and defend the trees and forests that we love.
