It's been referred to as that for ages.

It won't matter much longer as the whole planet goes up in flames. 120 years and the big off will happen.

This same guy -- he has a site -- easy to look up...says that deforestation in the Amazon does drastically reduce rainfall in the Midwest.

The whole lungs of the planet may be the wrong description but Dan Nepstead and others that decry that 'lungs of the planet' title...do warn of negative impacts of deforestation.

According to scientists, the big issue is that the Brazilian Amazon stores a vast amount of carbon. Increased deforestation combined with climate change is pushing the Amazon ever closer to a forest-to-savanna tipping point, triggering a large release of carbon and worsening global warming..

So are you claiming that the Amazon in not ablaze? The news media often gets lazy and posts "file photos", but trust me the rainforest is burning, and it is important to us all.

The Amazon helps maintain the water cycle by producing large quantities of rainfall every year, and helps to stabilize the earth's climate and slow global warming by fixing CO2 and producing 20% of the world's oxygen in the process.

Why hype the problem with 20-30 year old photos or photos from a different location? Because the terrified ones feel they wonít be listened to if they donít lie about it. Why are you defending a lie?

I don't listen to celebrities on anything. Unless this thread was here, I wouldn't even know they said anything about anything.

The problem is we are all connected. What happens in one part of the world, especially ecologically, affects us all in one way or another.

Peoples of the Amazon please keep your country poor and undeveloped so we can have an offset for India and China.
