Há uma percepção de que os cortes no orçamento para agências ambientais no Brasil, o relaxamento da fiscalização ambiental e a retórica constante de Bolsonaro contra os ambientalistas deram às pessoas luz verde para derrubar florestas ilegalmente sem consequências. O Brasil deve fazer melhorias em áreas como essas para mostrar que leva a sério a proteção da Amazônia.
I don’t think there would be a sudden flight of shale investment to Argentina [if Biden restricted new licenses on US federal lands].

Hay un reto [a la formulación de proyectos relacionados con el cambio climático por parte de gobiernos subnacionales colombianos] de capacidad técnica limitada.

While it’s too soon to say if the new administration will apply penalties to Brazil [for Amazon deforestation], there are a range of trade levers the US could pull...It can [also] say to Brazil that there are ways you can have economic development and conserve the forest at the same time, and we will support you.

[Les sanctions des États-Unis] ont aggravé la situation, en bloquant les investissements des compagnies pétrolières privées et en fermant la plupart des marchés où le Venezuela pouvait vendre son pétrole. Elles ont également rendu plus difficile l'importation du pétrole léger nécessaire au mélange avec son brut lourd.
