Só a floresta em pé garante água "grátis" para o resto do Brasil. Além de garantir chuva, a floresta presta outros serviços ambientais que precisamos, no Brasil, aprender a "dar valor":
✓ regula a qualidade do ar e o clima, as chuvas e as secas;
✓ protege do solo e a biodiversidade;
✓ protege mananciais e recursos hídricos;
✓ protege contra desastres naturais;
✓ cumpre a meta do acordo de Paris para estabilizar o aquecimento global;
✓ garantir fixação de carbono;
✓ evitar o lançamento na atmosfera 5,6 bilhões de toneladas de CO2.

Right-wing senator Ted Cruz, VP of Goldman Sachs Heidi Cruz, and the owner of Halex Oil Corporation Mike Hale all make up the leadership of Living Water, which has also collaborated with Coca Cola on projects around Latin America. https://intercontinentalcry.org/us-charity-helping-big-business-take-indigenous-peoples-water-mexico/
