It is considered a permanent guest member, the only outreach participant to have made policy commitments comparable to those of G20 members proper. Spain therefore appears to have become a de facto member of the G20.

In Brazil it almost seems that forests are being cleared for ranching and other purposes. Forests are a pain in the neck to people who see nothing but profit and progress. But forests fill a basic need for human life: O2. We breathe because of the oxygen produced by trees and plant life and especially the rainforests of the world. Bolsonaro may just have to deal with the world on the issue of the wildfires in the Amazon.
