    I would say so.  Today, according to Green Peace, 15% of the Amazon Rainforest has already been lost. When looking at the numbers, consider that between 2000 and 2007, the Brazilian Amazon rainforest was deforested at a rate between 19,000 km squared per year. Furthermoere, The World Wilfe Fund projects that by 2030,  55% of the Amazon rainforest will be gone. This is primarily because of deforestation and mining. In fact, an estimated 5.4 million acres are lost each year.
