Orellana and the Amazon

Should the Amazon Rainforest be saved or should the countries involved be able to use and develop it in any way they wish?

The Amazon Rainforest provides many important benefits to the world. Cutting down the Rainforest offers the countries involved the chance to sell valuable resources to help its people and reduce national debt.

Why should the Americans pay for it? If we're not the police of the world, we shouldn't be paying for anything. We should be putting the people in jail who are destroying our world.
