Brazil's Supreme Court sided with Amazonian Indians in a land dispute that some have called critical for determining the future of the rainforest that sprawls the size of Western Europe and provides a critical cushion against global warming.

I hope this is not a trick or some public relations scam. The beef and soy lobby is not going to take this lying down - I doubt this is over - the Indians are not well enough provisioned to monitor all this land properly. Ongoing vigilance and funding will be required to ensure this ruling is truly respected in the long haul.
