Brazilian government figures released on Friday indicated further rise in deforestation in the Amazon, a trend that could soon amount to a full year's reversal from recent progress in the battle against destruction of the world's largest rainforest.

Noted....I guess they will just keep cutting and burning until there is nothing left to burn or cut.

Please petition writers -- write a petition to stop all the deforestition -- a petition that the people in power -- cannot say no to -- stopping deforestation. \
Please Save Our Forests!
Please make a new law -- that states that almost all deforestation of naturally existing forests is a crime.

These people need to know that existing forests and their resources -- as existing forests -- are more valuable and important than growing anything -- for example soy beans -- which one could grow in a part of their yard or home.
These people make people feel -- like all this work is not worth it--

when all this work of signing petitions, writing, and phone calls,
and the other work that other people do to Save Our Forests
is important and it will help save the world!

Please keep up the good work of Saving Our Forest.

Brazil knows what its doing, yet, I didn't read anything hopeful in their stopping the destruction.

Everyone, use your Butterfly points to plant trees. This will help combat deforestation.
