Amazon occupancy higher than imagined post #1  quote:



Half of Brazil's Amazon Jungle Occupied-Study
quote:
About half of Brazil's original Amazon rainforest has been occupied by man, deforested or used for industry like logging and its destruction is worse than government data shows, a leading environmental group said on Tuesday.

The study using satellite photos shows that land occupation and deforestation covers some 47 percent of the world's largest jungle, an area bigger than the continental United States, the Brazilian non-government organization Imazon said.


South America needs our help more than any other place in the world to bring them technology, manufacturing, tech skills to ween them off their dependency on forest products for basic survival. Once the Amazon is decimated, it'll be the death of us all.
