Amazon Destruction by Beef Industry

A new report by Greenpeace indicates that the cattle industry is the single biggest cause of deforestation in the Amazon as trees are cleared to make way for ranches. The illegal deforestation of the Amazon jungle supplies chains of some of the best known global brands such as Adidas, Reebok, Nike, Timberland, Tesco, BMW, IKEA and Kraft, which are driving the Amazon destruction by buying beef and leather.

It's so sad that God's Creation is being destroyed unscrupulously by humanity's desire for profit and taste. We might be getting closer to a point of no return where magnificent habitats like the Amazon will no longer exit. And with its disappearance we'll see the extinction of many species of fauna and flora, as well as the destruction of one of the vastest areas of carbon storage.
