New collaboration with Santiago Armengod. He created the linocut graphic  and I designed the layout. To distribute at the COP17 – climate change  talks in Durban, South African this November and December (2011). What is REDD? According to the publication, “The Little REDD Book”, the basic idea  behind Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) is  simple: Developing countries that are willing and able to reduce  emissions from deforestation should be financially compensated for doing  so. However, according to many Indigenous Peoples, REDD is CO2lonialism  of Forests because it allows Northern polluters to buy permits to  pollute or “carbon credits” by promising not to cut down forests and  plantations in the South. The newspaper The Australian calls REDD a  ““classic 21st century scam emerging from the global climate change  industry.” (From Indigenous Environmental Network)
