In debate, Biden says he will allocate US $ 20 billion to Brazil to fight fires in the Amazon

Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders vehemently criticized some of their past policies in a Democratic primary TV debate, but demonstrated unity to criticize Donald Trump’s management of the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden said he would mobilize the United States and other countries to fight fires in the Amazon. “I would just now organize, in the hemisphere and in the world, to commit US $ 20 billion (about R $ 97.2 billion, at the current price) to the Amazon so that Brazil no longer burns the Amazon so they can have farms They absorb more carbon in the Amazon and in the region that is burning now than we emit in a year, every year. ”

Both candidates agree that climate change is an issue that “threatens humanity” and stress that the differences between the two are “in the details”.
