For most people "Borneo" conjures up an image of a wild and distant land of rainforests, exotic beasts, and nomadic tribes. But that place increasingly exists only in one's imagination due to industrial logging and deforestation.

When you fly over Borneo, you look down and see so much green that you're convinced all is well!

WRONG!

It's PALM OIL groves--most of the forest is gone, along with thousands of species which evolved over millions of years to live there.

What's happened in Borneo should be a crime and those who did it should be forced to replant it!

That is so sad. We need the forest for all the things the trees do for us like take pollution out of the air, provided oxygen. Greed will kill the earth.
