Friday, 18 January 2008 awful lot of cattle in Brazil.

Deforestation of the Amazon rainforest has picked up speed again after briefly slowing - whilst big business gathered its forces for another assault. Despite (ie-because of) its HUGE ethanol market, Brazil remains one of the big 4 Carbon criminal states - 3/4 of it's emissions coming from deforestation and its aftermath. Still - cheap beef, eh? Fantastic!

don't forget the burgeoning soy business and so-called wild and sustainable harvesting of precious herbs for the well-to-do american and european natural health industry (the new big pharma businesses to be taken over by the even bigger ones in the not too distanf future).
