URGENT: Save the rainforests in Brazil sign now

APOLOGIES FOR CROSS POSTINGS AND TO THOSE WHO ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THIS AND HAVE TAKEN ACTION.

I don't send these out very often, but this is really urgent for all of us to take action simply by signing the petition. Read Dr. Mike McElroy's summary. If you agree, please sign the petition and pass it on immediately. Tme is of the essence:

The Brazilian congress is now voting on a project that will reduce the Amazon forest to 50\% of its size!!! As you know, 50\% of all living species of plants, animals and microbes live on 5\% of the earth's lands - the rain forests. The Amazon Forest is one of the largest in the world.

The Brazilian congress is now voting on a project that will reduce the
Amazon forest to 50\% of its size. It will take 1 MINUTE to read this,
but PLEASE put your names on the list and forward this on.

The area to be deforested is 4 times the size of Portugal and would be
mainly used for agriculture and pastures for livestock. All the wood is
to be sold to international markets in the form of wood chips, by large
multinational companies. The truth is that the soil in the Amazon forest
is useless without the forest itself. Its quality is very acidic and the
region is prone to constant floods. At this time more than 160,000
square kilometres deforested with the same purpose are abandoned and in
the process of becoming deserts.

Deforestation and the subsequent processing of the woodchips on this
scale will also release huge amounts of carbon, which is currently
locked up in the wood, back into the atmosphere worsening the problem of
climate change. We just cannot let this happen.
