Threat to Brazilian Rainforests

Threat to Brazilian Rainforests

>>This is important for all of us!!!
>>Brazilian congress is now voting on a project that will reduce the
>>amazon forest to 50% of its size. The area to be deforested is 4 times
>>the size of Portugal and would
>>be mainly used for agriculture and pastures for live stock...
>>All the wood is to be sold to international markets in the form of wood
>>chips, by 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 this time more
>>than 160.000 square kilometers deforested with the same purpose, are
>>abandoned and in the process of
>>becoming deserts.
>>We cannot let this happen. Copy the text into a new email, put your
>>complete name in the list below, and send to everyone you know. (Don't
>>just forward it cos then it
>>will end up with rows of >>>'s) If you are the 100th person to sign
>>please send a copy to fsaviolo@openlink.com.br
>>Thank you.
