Green Issues.

I have just spent two months in rain forest of Brazil. It is one of

the most beautiful places on earth. Simply because there are so much life

in there if you climb to the canopy, to the tops of the trees, you see

birds, insects, snakes, tree frogs, lizards, monkeys. Its incredible! Like

nowhere else in the world!

Did you know that nearly half of the worlds animal and plant species

live in rain forests? Over one thousand types of tree, most of the plants

have never been properly studied. And many important medicines come from

tropical plants. A treatment for cancer or AIDS may be hidden here just

waiting to be discovered or destroyed.

It is tragic that the worlds rain forests are being destroyed since

1945. We have lost more than 50% of them. We must stop now or itll be too

late.

The forests are the lungs of the earth. They breathe in the carbon

dioxide and breathe out oxygen and water. We have to save them. Otherwise

there will be a catastrophic change in the whole worlds climate.
