Well, I agree completly. How would it be if we lost this beautiful enviorment that we have in Brazil. It is one of Brazil's most important factors, and what about the wide species of animals that live in the rainforest. Would we also lose them? Of course we would, where would they live if they were not in their own habitat? It would be a complete disaster. We have to fight for what is right, and we do not want the rainforest to be extict.

This is a serious situation! Deforestation is not only killing people, plants and animals in the rainforest, but it is killing us. People don't think about the enviroment in their everyday lives and they need to start. The people goverments that are having people go cut trees are killing us. The goverment is killing themselves and us. By 2080 one of the most recognized rainforests is going to be extinct, then another rainforest and another. How are we going to live when our source of survival is being endangered? How are we suppose to breathe when the plants that give of the oxygen we need, are being put at risk. Do people not realize this stuff? Deforestation is also killing of plants that have elements to cure devastating diseases including cancer. This needs to stop!

One video said that rainforest could be exstinct by 2050. Global Warming could make deserts rule the world. Sooner or later like by the 23rd century (2200's) all animals in the world could become exstinct. Global Warming is drying and heating up the world. If you see that before the sun turns into a red giant that the sun goes through gradual warming, then that may be the real cause of global warming. Global warming reduces the ammount of rain, melts down the polar areas, causes more forest fires which could lead in the future to the end of the world event like firestorms. Without rainforests there would be NO medicines because that's where most cures come from. HUMANS ARE YOU CRAZY!!! Oneday the only living things on earth will be humans if we don't keep it up here.

listen people there is no need to worry about the rain forest or get obsessed with saving the environment. It's just not cool. The environment is just fine. And there is no such thing as global warming for crying out loud! Temperatures change over the year. It's getting colder if anything.So just stop being obsessed with the environment. There is more to life you wouldn't be alive if the rain forest went extincted; so what do you care for?

Extinction is necessary for evolution and should be allowed to happen. However, it is a great way to make money because there are so many bleeding heart suckers who will give money to strangers with a good story. I love the charitable fools who give money never knowing what it really is used for. Enought money has been collected to save the rainforest a hundred times over but the collection goes on and the rainforest will go extinct anyway. Same thing goes for curing cancer. The cure was found then buried to the collections could continue. Wake up people. Never donate antying to anybody because its only being used against you.

Here are a couple of thoughts:

1. Can Brazil be paid to keep the Rain Forest? Pay them the same amount of money they would make by destroying it. What good is money in a dead environment? Also, the environment and animals always suffer through man's greed and stupidity. With the knowledge we have of how important the Amazon Rain Forest is, common sense should prevail for the long term life of the earth, and not the short term greed that everyone wants.

2. Can other Rain Forests be planted around the world to help the environment and our fellow creatures?
