Sad indeed. They will have ample time to regret this.

If they can see it via satellite, how about using that burning satellite laser ray for some good -- targeting illegal deforesters.

Great. Now maybe we can get NASA to expose the U.S.

The Tao says if you want something to shrink....let it expand. OK I am ready for the shrinking of greedy people and the expanding of protection people.

Noted Cal. Wonder who or what is consuming all the forests on all the continents and islands? Whoops, almost forgot the ocean forests being consumed too.

This is so sad. Just knowing that this is taking place leaves little hope for the ethical response of mankind to any environmental issue.

Noted with many thanks for this post Cal.
It is very sad that an Archaelogical Reserve was logged, and I hope this new airborne laser will become one of the most useful tools of the future.
