HANDS OFF THE AMAZON!

Jacek Palkiewicz knows who’s been making holes in the Earth’s green lungs & why

By Ksenia Veretennikova

Vremya MN


Beside the enormity of deforestation in the Amazon basin, most other problems pale into insignificance, for those forests at the other end of the globe are the lungs of this planet of ours. They generate nearly half of the oxygen we breathe.

For millions of years the jungle remained intact & the Earth’s ecological balance stable. But over the last 50 years man has been doing a lot of damage there. The area has been pushed to the brink of destruction & with it the rest of the planet.

Jacek Palkiewicz, the famous Italian explorer of Polish extraction has been trying to alert the public to the issue. He returned from his last trip three weeks ago. What did the expedition discover? Alas, nothing very encouraging. The Amazon rainforests are still being felled illegally & rapaciously.

Especially harmful is the oil industry. Pipes leak unmercifully & oil seeps into the river & the soil. In order to build drilling rigs in the area, 100.000 hectares of forest have been destroyed over the last 20 years.
