I don't buy that. We know the consequences of widespread deforestation. And we realize the negative consequences of destroying one of the world's richest and most important eco-systems. Us ciriticizing and being appalled by development in the Amazon is self-preservation, it hasn't to do with morality.

And the "Since you fucked up in the past you don't have the right to tell me not to fuck up now"-argument doesn't hold any water to me. Yes, Europeans deforested a great deal of their regional forestlands, but they also did that largely during the middle-ages, not during a post-industrialized age of globalized economies. We know better today. And in an ideal world we would act better too.
