Criticism Grows Over Pipeline Which Will Devastate the Amazon
Here is an important update on plans by Venezuela, Brazil and Argentina to build a massive natural gas pipeline through Brazil's Amazon rainforest. In March, the Rainforest Portal and EcoInternet took the lead in making this a global issue, as our network mobilized to campaign against this potentially 9,000 km long pipeline. The proposed project would pierce the heart of the Amazon – devastating rainforests, water resources, the climate and indigenous populations across a huge swathe of South America – and ensuring the destruction of the Amazon as a large, operable whole. The article indicates that opposition is growing and the pipeline's prospects are fading. Let's end this boondoggle now – please send now and forward widely the still current and urgent alert: Massive Gas Pipeline to Pierce the Amazon.
