Thanks Cal. Another lesson. What may good for one economy (local) may be pure disastor for many others for unknown time, and/or are indirectly involved and have little control. We see examples all over this world (Canada & U.S.A. & end market tar sands battles).

Amazon Forest = lungs of the world. I am glad this has been stopped! why are human beings so ignorant? Why do we insist on destroying what keeps us alive?

We don't need any more "progress" on this planet! Haven't we destroyed enough?
