Questionable Gas Pipeline to Pierce the Amazon
A massive pipeline through the Amazon is proposed to carry natural gas from Venezuela to Brazil and Argentina. Project approval for the 9,000+ km pipeline, at a cost of over $US 20 billion, could come as early as mid-March. The pipeline would pierce the heart of the Amazon and ensure its destruction as a large, operable whole. If you have additional information, please contact us for an eventual action alert.
This questionable project is the latest industrial monstrosity to threaten the world's remaining life-giving large rainforest expanses. The world's leaders must be made to understand that all remaining large rainforests must remain intact and protected if the Earth is to be sustained. This project bears watching and must be laid to rest now, in the planning stage, rather than as construction commences.
