Landscape amnesia

We suffer from landscape amnesia!

We are rapidly forgetting how different the surrounding landscape looked like 50 years ago, because the change from year to year has been so gradual.

Therefore most people who are still spending their life in deep sleep think that it is not that bad. What’s a couple of acres of rain forest? A lot!

Think about it next time when you say something stupid like – oh, there is still lot of forests left.

Wee need to save our forests now! Logging them at the current rate will result in a final destruction of our life line in less than 20 years. And that is in my and your lifetime.

Don’t buy paper and wood products made from rainforest trees and reduce your paper consumption to a minimum.
