  10. Should be called “Cap and Trap”!
    This “money” won’t clear the air, clean the water, nor stop deforestation, it will only collect interest in their bank.
    More money for those that used money that advanced and enhanced the despoiling of the planet in the first place.
    Third world countries beware; of the promises of “free” gifts.
