Deforestation in Ariquernes, Brazil
Here is a satellite's eye view of the deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest.
I just thought I'd leave a note here on my blog that I saw it. It looks like one helluva scar, 100 miles wide by 400 miles long. One big scar, about the size of Kentucky!
And another view of an area called Ruropolis (I wonder who named it that?)
Where does all that wood GO TO??? Is the land usable after it's been clear-cut?
chant/prayer/mantra: For our home, Earth. May we see fit to bless it and save it and all its creatures from ourselves, before it pays us back.
agape to all,
