How can these people do this just for some money?
You cannot blame the loggers, their bosses or their bosses’ bosses’.
Blame money and our corrupt economic system which destroys 3rd world nations like Brazil and forces its people to do immoral and destructive things in order to survive.
If cutting down a rainforest was the only way for you to earn a living then you would do it to, like it or not.
