Subject: rainforests need help,
All,
The Brazilian congress is now voting on a project
that will reduce the Amazon forest to 50% of its size. It
will take 1 MINUTE to read this, but PLEASE put your
names on the list and forward this on as instructed
below. The area to be deforested is 4 times the size
of Portugal and would be mainly used for agriculture
and pastures for livestock. All the wood is to be
sold to international markets in the form of wood chips,
by large multinational companies. The truth is that the
soil in the Amazon forest is useless without the
forest itself. Its quality is very acidic and the
region is prone to constant floods. At this time more
than 160,000 square kilometres deforested with the
same purpose are abandoned and in the process of
becoming deserts, meaning that this proposal is in
the short-term interests of a few, and in the long term
interests! of none.
Please copy the text into a 'new e-mail' put your
complete name in the list below, and send to everyone
you know.(DON'T JUST FORWARD IT - AS IT WILL THEN END
UP WITH ROWS AND ROWS of '>'s). If you are the 400th
person to sign please send a copy to:

Thank you for your help:
