Most Biodiverse Rainforests Threatened by Aerial Spraying
There are valid reasons to be concerned about the drug trade and the ravages of drug addiction. But this does not justify spraying toxic chemicals upon some of the most biodiverse rainforests habitats on the Planet found in Colombia, that are tens of millions of years old. Who can forget the suffering caused by similar spraying of Agent Orange? Certainly not the maimed and poisoned victims. It is not fair nor just that America's drug habit leads to widespread destruction of rainforest habitats necessary for global ecological sustainability and local livelihoods. If drugs are to be fought, there must be another way short of imposing chemical laden ecocide upon a region of evolutionary and ecological brilliance.
