Brazil - Ongoing destruction of the Amazon - Belomonte dam project

Money plays its influence.
President Dilma of Brazil - a former environment Minister - resigned her post in protest of the Belomonte project - only to approve it years later - now as President.
Amazing changes money can bring. It is obvious President Dilma is the worst offender of crimes in ecological terms by allowing the mammoth project to be implemented.
800 000 acres of prime forest, ( Amazon produces 20 % of all the earth 's oxygen ) are being inundated, and this figure is estimated to double.
We ask ourselves : Why don't we think ? We have other alternative sources for energy ( this was explained by environmental groups ). President Dilma and her cabinet are all victims of politicians greed.
They simply do not care about their people , indigenous tribes that inhabit the Amazon.
Money won't buy you clean air, and won't bring back tens of thousands of oxygen producing trees and other foliage. Think !
We cover the events on Belomonte on our other blog , check it out ( and you may like it or Google plus it , or tweet it, or digg it. Do all you can to bring this plight to the ear of those who keep on ignoring the world s voices.
Thanks for your patronage.
Save us from BELOMONTE , President Dilma
For the next generations to come. And life.
