Best seen on the NY Times for the graphics, the article is a reminder 
that the environmental crisis is not reducible to greenhouse gases. You 
can replace oil and gas with wind and solar but what do you replace 
timber with when it comes to furniture? Or houses? Or innumerable 
household items? The article also illustrates the phony solidarity of 
BRICS. China has about as much interest in the sustainability of Russian 
forests as it does of copper mining in Zambia. That's how capitalism 
operates, doesn't it?
