  1. I own some rainforest.
  2. I go to Verra and say, look at this lovely rainforest… I’d love to keep it like this, but I just can’t afford to.
  3. Verra ask me to promise that I won’t cut it down.
  4. I pinky promise with a cherry on top.
  5. Verra give me a lump sum.
  6. Verra keep an eye on me for the next century or so.
