    Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth’s land surface; now they cover a mere 6% and experts estimate that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years.

    One and one-half acres of rainforest are lost every second with tragic consequences for both developing and industrial countries.

    It is estimated that at the rate of one and a half acres of rain forest destroyed every second all of the rain forests will be deforested in less than 40 years.

    Radio Netherlands and other sources have stated this past November that deforestation in Brazil is at its lowest since 1988, lets hope this trend continues not only for the plants, animals and indigenous people, but also in the fight against global warming.
