Dear Editor,

To reduce the national debt sooner, and deal with the looming entitlement shortages, we should write our elected officials to do the following: Have the US take, for a certain term , take a 20% lease in rainforest land—or make an installment sale--for partnering with experts to show landowners how to harvest the rainforests many times more profitably (and sustainably.) This is discussed by the authors of . The experts, of course, could take a similar lease or sale amount. Perhaps we can give the landowners an advance and/or first demonstrate this with American rainforests like in Hawaii.(As for subsistence farmers, a practice called Inga alley cropping is discussed at . Regarding the cutting down of trees for firewood, an organization known as Solar Cookers International obviates such need for perhaps $5 a person for 5 years. For any of the world’s lumber companies needing assistance in learning sound practices of selectivity without clear-cutting, we could make that knowledge available for a fee.)

Sincerely, Alex Sokolow
