Don’t really have much to add. This may be one of the saddest things I’ve seen in a while. What are we doing?

I saw the same thing happen to human beings in low income housing and poor neighborhoods during Katrina. No one cried for them either.

Sad really.

What are "we" doing?

Building the desk you may be sitting at right now.

Don't complain about environmental destruction while you're complicit in it. Everyone wants to clean up the world, but no one wants to give anything up to do it.

Yes, pretty sad. Wonder if the guy who made the video went to the authorities. Also wonder how a bulldozer made all its way to the forest unnoticed. Someone got money under the table ?

People who were displaced or evacuated by the storm came home to find their houses being destroyed by the city of New Orleans. Never to be rebuilt again and have the land sold to rich developers so they could force the poor people out of the neighborhood. Some people who have lived there for generations.

They tried to fight bulldozers and excavators too. They lost.

I understand we need to make things. This was a forest in Borneo under protection. They were logging illegally. I’m all for responsible capitalism.

It’s an excavator to be fair. They are used in heavy construction. And can also be used to build roads. Even roads through jungles!!

you're complicit in it

Are you saying we're complicit in illegal logging?

Gotcha. I feel they should relocate the whole city. It’s built on land below sea level and still sinking. Recipe for disaster.

That’s another argument. But don’t destroy people’s homes to move them. Especially if the home didn’t even get damaged or flooded.

Imagine showing back up to your house and seeing no damage to anything. Only to be blocked by police while an excavator like in the video destroys all your belongings. They didn’t even let people back in the get their stuff that wasn’t damaged.

And that’s here in America..... to fellow human beings.

Looks like they darted the ape. Probably would have given that excavator a run for it’s money. Especially if he’d torn the arms off of the operator and crushed the others with the bucket. We need to get these orangutans some ar-15s so they can defend themselves.

This reminds me of the first bigfoot sightings story about the tracks and damage done to the equipment which has happened more than once. They don't like logging either.

Also reminds me of the movie Avitar.

Is that a real picture, because if it is the movie WallE was not far off the mark either.
