1)Well, I understand that the world community is fully aware of the adverse impact of the depleting forest covers world over.
2)In fact, it is a challenge for the poor and developing countries than for the developed ones since the former tend to think that development is more important than the nature. It is a myopic view. They seem to think that once they are developed and rich, they can also develop forest covers. I do not know how well this system works.
3)It is for each country to act on its own instead of crying for international help. What about our dear India and its authorities? Are they doing anything positive in this regard? Probably not? I read reports about peoples protest against depleting trees in the Garden City of Bangalore. Today, Bangaloreans need air conditioner to keep their cool. That is really a very shocking example for the state of affairs. The same is true in other parts of India.

Sorry man, much of the "international community" runs via business models, I am sure u know what i mean, it is hard to arrive on a non profit consensus.

The "ISS" was simply a modification of the Mir. Do u see ANY non business model based frontier R&D like terraforming , extra planetary colonization etc. in the charts? Nope, but u can buy your beloved a NASA approved real estate plot on the moon! :)

Initiatives like BURIA (habitable base outside earth) aren't even discussed 'coz u can't build a busienss model 'round it for the next 5 yrs. Unless u do that, the R&D effort often find itself out of favour, this is issue. At the same time, we need to sustain our indusltrializing / ized lives.
