This is outrageous hypocrisy, and travesty!
'It is hard to believe, but as part of its CLIMATE PROTECTION POLICY, the Norwegian government is planning to finance the deforestation of the rainforest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.' (emphasis added)

This will not only destroy this huge carbon sink, it will kill this lobe of the planet's oxygen producing lung!  This is quite typical of capitalist countries' so called climate protection strategies - something not actually good for the planet, but pretends to be with good soundbites (in this case "sustainable forest management", a code word for clear-cut and monoculture plantations), and profits a lobbying industry.
