    If you haven't yet bought your piece of land on the
    moon, this may concern you...

    The Brazilian congress is now voting on a project that will reduce the
    Amazon forest to 50% of its size...

    the area that is to be deforested is four 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 this time 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 woodchips( on this scale
    will also release huge amounts of carbon which is currently locked up in the
    wood) back into the atmosphere worsening the problem of climate change.

    yeah.. there are petitions going around.. if you want one.. request it from me at [email protected]

    thanks for your time.
