Short-sighted, unlogical interferences in the natural order of things and events do have far reaching consequences.
Example: the life cycle of many sorts of fish is so, that they need to swim upwards or downwards, in oder to procreate - and provide us with food!

Thanks again, Cher.

Thannnxxx for sharing.. lets hope that some good will come outta this.. sometimes progress can be good as long as it is done in the right way... but Brazil is like a rough diamond when it comes to these green issues.. they need a lot of polishing up

Hi Cher ... i'm never sure how much significance my vote has in the usa as i am in the uk, and i am not in a position to offer you a green star but i heartily commend your apparently tireless efforts to bring to our attention the various important issues that we all should know and take action about ... many thanks to you and others that bring these issues to light.

Signed and added my own personal views on the subject. Why is it that people want to spend money rather than use the natural energy available to us? The wind and solar energy are very strong sources of energy, yet most will not even consider it.

Brazil is an ultra-important country which protects us all on Mother Earth.
(1) The Amazon jungle needs to be protected, preserved at all costs...
(2) Brazil needs to be encouraged to go GREEN as much as possible…
(3) We should be helping Brazil with technology, advice and partnership….
