    Indonesia Agrees to Curb Commercial Deforestation
    By AUBREY BELFORD
    Published: May 27, 2010

    Indonesia has declared a two-year moratorium on clearing natural forests as part of a billion-dollar deal aimed at reviving efforts to fight climate change after the collapse of global talks in Copenhagen last year.

    The deal, signed Wednesday at a climate conference in Oslo, is open to other countries and would tie the $1 billion in funding to "verified emissions reductions" as part of the United Nations-backed effort known as Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation, or REDD. Under the plan, rich countries help pay for the preservation of forests in developing countries.

    If i didn't just burn my daily diary, i'd have written about that. HUGE news!
