24 Apr Forests
We should take an interest about the fate of the great forests of the world which are been logged for agriculture and palm oil plantations, polluted by oil wells and mining.
28 million acres of Indonesian rainforest have already been wiped out.
And over 183 million acres in the Amazon basin.
Trees cool our warming earth through cloud cover, provide shade for plants to grow, stop soil erosion and attract ocean air for essential rains to water the land. Not forgetting that when forests go, so do the lives of indigenous peoples and every form of wildlife.
