Our Forests are Burning
We’re losing our rainforests at the rate of an acre per second. Every year, forest areas the size of New York state are completely wiped out. That’s 32 million acres gone for good, because we decided we need land for crops, cattle, and pulp and paper more than we need forests. This isn’t just environmental genocide, it’s suicide. Without forests to breathe carbon in and oxygen out, our own lives – and those of our children – are at risk.
The good news is that ending deforestation is the fastest, easiest, cheapest, and most scalable climate change solution there is … period!
