Since governmental corruption is so much worse south of the US border, I am sure some Brazilian officials are making a large profit from killing Mother Earth.

How very sad -- this area should be protected.

They know and understand this, but they have chosen this path of destruction because they don't believe the consequences will be deadly in their own lifetime...and they will die rich. In actuality, they will die in absolute spiritual poverty because they sold their souls and the lives of their children for the love of worthless money.
