Should Spending in Carbon Mean Compensating in Cash?

On Tuesday, Indonesia, the host of a major climate change conference in December 2006, called on all rich countries to compensate those poorer countries that are preserving and re-building their rainforests to soak up our greenhouse gases.

“Countries that seek to enhance their carbon sinks should be given incentive and reward for doing so” said President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. He said he was optimistic about the UN Climate Change meeting scheduled for December in Bali, and seeks to forge a successor to the Kyoto Protocol by “…thinking outside the box”.
