Córdoba has the highest level of deforestation in Argentina. All that remains is five percent of the 12 million hectares of native forest that the province had at the start of the 20th century

This is what happens when you clear cut the land to plant all those GMO crops; not to mention the highest occurrence of cancer in the world. Get the picture?

In certain weather patterns, a clear cut of timber, will always turn into a desert. Thanks, Cal.

What did they expect? Those trees had good purpose. Yep, got the picture and it is ugly.

under many climate change models, the change from lush rainforest to dry desert is predicted for much of South America....so maybe this is just one more piece of evidence climate is changing now....

There should be a law to replace every tree those idiots cut down. As you can see, only humans can make a desert out of what was once a thriving forest. Disgusting!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the result one can expect from de-forestation drought and desert.Why do people wit until the last minute before coming out of their stupor and attempt to put thing right when it;s to late.

Thank you, Cal. This is appalling. What is worse is that people are apparently not likely to understand the extenf of their responsibility.
