awareness, designs aware thought and aware thought creates aware action and interaction and when we act and interact with awareness we empower others to to do the the same.. knowledge is not power its empowering lets be empowered.. set our fellow beings free, we as in all of us are change, we are what we think and with our thoughts we make the world. life has value beyond measure

Less trees = parched, scorched earth. In the shade it's cool, outside of the shade, it's hot. Seems like the global warming deniers should be forced to stand in the desert...without trees until they understand the concept.

Even though we're filled with concern because Cambodia has lost 97% of its trees, I don't doubt that there's a corporation out there that has loggers, each with a chainsaw in hand and a foot on the starting block, just waiting for the signal that will allow them to get the remaining 3%. Greed has no shame!

The petition states: "Cambodia has endorsed the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and therefore must realize its sovereign duty to uphold its principles." The Cambodian government needs to be held accountable. Shame on them for forcing concerned citizens from other countries to remind them of their obligations to their indigenous peoples AND our environment!

Gladly signed and noted! Thanks for offering this opportunity, Jim! And thanks, Dandelion, for the forward!
