Amazon Deforestation Inevitable?

According to environmental experts, loggers are having the time of their lives in the Amazon forest. Farmers and ranchers are taking advantage of the situation and go deep into the forest looking for cheap land.

While strict enforcement of rules is needed by the government, humanity’s conscience plays the biggest role.

Ranchers, loggers and farmers are certainly to blame in this situation, but they are not the only ones. As long as consumers keep supporting these industries by purchasing their products, we share the guilt on the suffering and destruction we are causing on Earth.
