figures released today show that in the twelve months to august last year one fifth of the largest forest in the world, in the amazon basin, was clear-felled..that’s one fifth of it!..to give you some idea of the enormous scale of this; this is an area the size of belgium…
this is the largest amount of forest clear-felled in a 12 month period,….ever….
why is this being done?…the land is being cleared to grow soya beans..
who is funding/enabling this environmental disaster?
the world bank..this is part of their fucken neo-liberal tainted drive to promote the soy industry….
does the world bank not have care/protection of our environment/future, as part of the raison d etre for it’s existance? if not, why not?..
what the fuck can we do about this?…
as a first move, should we give mike moore a call and ask him wtf is going on in/with his former fiefdom?….
