Bolzano traveled to Los Angeles (USA) Attend the US SummitA meeting of state and government leaders in the region.
Sitting next to Biden, Bolzano said that Brazil feels “sometimes” a threat to Amazon’s sovereignty. He backed Brazilian environmental law and said the country would “soon” become one of the “largest exporters of clean energy through green hydrogen”.
“Sometimes we feel there is a threat to our sovereignty in that area. But Brazil is doing well to protect its territory,” he said.
He acknowledged the “difficulties” associated with the environment. “The environmental issue, we have our difficulties, but we do everything we can to meet our interests, and why not say the will of the world, but, as I said, we are an example to the world on the environmental issue,” he said.
Prior to Bolzano’s speech, Biden told him that Brazil had made “real sacrifices” to protect the Amazon and that the rest of the world needed to help fund the protection of the rainforest. According to Biden, the protection of the Amazon is an “international responsibility” because the world benefits from the protection of forests.
Bolzano told his U.S. colleague that 85% of the Amazon was protected and that environmental law was “very strict” and that the government was doing its best to comply.
But data from the National Institutes of Space Research (INBE) show that, for the first time in history, deforestation warnings in the Amazon exceeded 1,000km in April. Compared to April 2021, the number of alerts has almost doubledAccording to Inf.
