QUITO, ECUADOR- The President of Ecuador is threatening to force that country's newspapers to go paperless and all digital to save paper. Rafael Correa has had a long and combative relationship with his country's opposition-owned newspapers and on Twitter he took a jab at papers bucking a proposed referendum to block oil exploration in a national park. Rich nations had refused to fund a plan he proposed to protect the Amazon preserve as a hedge against global warming. Correa tweeted that if he got the necessary signatures and there is a referendum, he'll propose newspapers be published in digital form alone "to save paper and avoid so much indiscriminate cutting of trees."
