Bush visits Brazil and thousands of people there tell him to go back to where he came from :


Bush and the United States go to war to control oil reserves, and now Bush and his pals are trying to control the production of ethanol in Brazil. And that has to be stopped," said Suzanne Pereira dos Santos, an activist with Brazil's Landless Workers Movement.


The cane cutters will be affected, we're going to have more jungle burning, which could harm the environment and even producers of other crops will suffer."

Graffiti reading "Get Out, Bush! Assassin!" appeared on walls near the locations Bush will drive past as he begins a Latin American tour that also includes stops in Uruguay, Colombia, Guatemala and Mexico.


It appears Bush wants an agreement with Brazil, so that Brazil will produce more ethanol and USA will buy it, and be less dependent on oil.
He tries do destroy other's people country so the US can profit from them.

"We give you printed paper (money) , you destroy your country and give us ethanol"

What ethanol production means and why it's an utopia :
The USA consumes today 20 million barrels of oil / day. For only 1 million barrels of ethanol 20 million hectares of sugar cane or corn is needed. As you know, corn or sugar cane does not grow in one day. Intensive agriculture destroys the soil. Also they need more space for normal agriculture, which means that more and more of the Amazon jungle will be cut down or burned.

Amazon today : 600 new fires every day, man made or natural. 20 years ago it was impossible to set the jungle on fire because of the humidity, now things have changed, because of the deforestation there is draught, the jungle catches fire by itself from lightning.

Amazon dries up :

But Bush is imune and not interested about all this, he just wants more ethanol, wants to "help" Brazil. That is why the brazilian people love him so much. That is why Venezuela chose Hugo Chavez for president, they do not want a puppet president, slave of the US like Brazil has, and who will do exactly what Bush wants

thanks for posting this thread.


biofuels will always remain limited to niche markets, because we can't destroy our planet just to satisfy our ideologies, no matter how well intended they are.

forests are doing more for earth's climate than a couple of million barrels of petroleum saved, but tell the CO2 haters. totally unfounded hysteria.
