Rain forests do NOT "belong" to any nation or any tribe or any business.

As the "lungs" of the planet....THEY BELONG TO EVERYONE!

If other people continue to destroy forests, we should create them. If everyone planted trees and stopped using excessive wood and paper products, there wouldn't be such a market for this product. Stop eating meat and there won't be so many trees destroyed for crops and grazing land. The market is world-wide now, so everything you do here affects everywhere.

We all need to cut back on paper products, wood products - anything that is being made from the forests, and we need to support organizations that are planting trees, and plant some more ourselves. The forests give us the air we breathe!!!

Have they ever heard of global warming? Obviously they are only interest in immediate profits, no matter what happens after the disasters they are provoking.
