Brazil creates largest tropical rainforest preserve
BRASILIA, Brazil, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Brazil created the world's largest tropical rainforest preserve on Monday in a section of the Amazon scarred by illegal logging and decades of violence between loggers, ranchers, conservationists and land rights activists.

The preserve covers more than 58,000 square miles (15 million hectares) -- an area larger than England -- across seven parks in Para, an eastern Amazon state heavily exploited by illegal loggers and land speculators.

Whew.

Another problem solved.

Now, hopefully Sting can go back to writing some good songs.

Yes. I was very worried my supply of Lemur Burgers was going to be endangered.

Once this guy I knew showed me this porn site that was dedicated to raising money to save the rainforest. Their problem was they couldn't get any Save The Rainforest non-profits to accept their donations. It was weird.

Somehow I knew Thrillsy and Declarey could find something wrong about this story. Whatever happened to that old right-wing mantra about nobody in the media ever reporting good news? Well, I guess in Thrillsy's Universe, if you can't pave it, it ain't worth anything.

Interesting, perhaps its not as direct as it looks from whats been written. These things just dont happen in an instance, theres alot more than meets the eye especially where nature is concerned.
