Life on earth would not be possible without freshwater and oxygen created by places like the Amazon, ´the lungs of the world´.
Life on earth would not be possible without freshwater and oxygen created by places like the Amazon, ´the lungs of the world´. The ongoing destruction of the rainforest is a bi-partisan issue: the future of humanity depends on not burning two-thirds of our oil reserves. In this video made by Amazon Watch, a girl pleads for change.
“Equador is not going to get out of poverty just because they come and drill for oil in the Amazon,” she says. “Equador is going to lose the only rainforest that we have left. It´s going to destroy cultures, the environment, and kill plants and animals…That´s not getting out of poverty.”
Hear hear. Please share this video if you agree and would like to join her call for change.
