President Bharrat Jagdeo was joined yesterday by movie star Harrison Ford in a call to the United Nations to protect the world’s tropical forests as the quickest and most cost effective way to tackle climate change.Jagdeo and Ford spoke in front of a stunning installation of life-size origami trees and wildlife to call on world leaders attending the UN General Assembly to provide developing nations with funding to allow them to keep the planet’s tropical forests standing.According to Conservation International, protecting forests represents one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to fight climate change now, whereas many other strategies may take years to develop.“If we wait, these forests will be lost along with the multiple benefits they provide to humanity in terms of climate mitigation, fresh water, erosion control, food and resources,” the conservation body stated.The President’s address was the focus of a major media event organised by Conservation International and Team Earth in Greeley Square, New York City, a day before the opening of the UN General Assembly.The life-size origami trees and wildlife,cheap nfl jerseys china, symbolising Guyana’s massive and immensely important forest, was created on site over two days, and then partially destroyed as a statement about loss of the planet’s forests.More than 80 per cent of Guyana (13m hectares – an area approximately the size of England) is still covered with intact tropical rainforest.“In the year since I last came to New York to call for forest conservation,Cheap Jerseys From China, the world has lost an area of forest the size of my entire country.
