What should random internet people who obviously don't understand science do?

I donít know where you live but a high percentage of Americans live where forests were cleared.

Over 1 million square miles of the Amazon is protected. Do you feel we should be able to force Brazil to preserve more.

Why should we trust you? Are you in Brazil?


That's the same problem with the Hollywood bull crappers! They are preaching about something that they know nothing about while criss-crossing the world in their private jets

I don't think we have to force Brazil to do anything but we can encourage educating farmers with proper techniques that will maintain the integrity of the environment.

Yes, you are right about the clear cutting of forests, all over the world. I know some trees need to be cut down for development, although I think there is too much development, but I don't see the need to clear cut forests like they do.

I don't think we can force another country to do anything. However, it's a damn shame that he's doing what he's doing. So much wildlife habitat is being disseminated and for what? Greed. Pure and simple. Humans have the wrong headed idea that they're the only beings on earth that are important.

BTW, my family uprooted and moved from where we went back generations because of the over-development. Couldn't handle that heartbreak anymore.

It's pretty silly that you can't understand the analogy.
