Amazon Deforestation:

To anyone who might be interested... (Cut and paste this to an email and forward it to others in cyberspace.)

The Brazilian congress is now voting on a project that will reduce the Amazon forest to 50% of it size. It will take 1 minute to read this, but PLEASE , put your name on the list, and forward this on.

The area to be deforested is 4 times the size of Portugal, and would be mainly used for agriculture and pastures for livestock. All the wood is to be sold to international markets in the form of wood chips by large multinational companies.

The truth is that the soil in the Amazon forest is useless without the forest itself, its quality is very acidic, and the region is prone to constant floods. At the moment, more than 160,000 square kilometres deforested with the same purpose are abandoned and in the process of becoming deserts.

Deforestation (and the subsequent processing of the wood chips) on this scale will also release huge amounts of carbon (which is currently locked up in the wood) back into the atmosphere. We just cannot let this happen.

Please COPY the text into a NEW email, DO NOT just forward this on , or it will just be lines and lines like this>>>>>>>
and it becomes very difficult to read :(

Now just add your complete name and location to the list below, and send it to everyone you know.
