Deforestation of the Amazon hits new low
Here are more good news as deforestation in Brazil hit another record low. As The Guardian reports : ” Data from satellite images shows a 23% reduction in deforestation from August 2011 to July 2012 against the previous year.”
” The figures, published on Thursday, mark the continuation of a long-term trend that has seen clearance rates in the Amazon fall by about three quarters since peak deforestation in 2004.”
Local NGOS – including Greenpeace – actually believe that ending deforestation completely is feasible and within reach. Let’s make it a reality !
