THE sad news of the rain forests burning in the Amazon is yet another ‘nail in the coffin’ as far as the future of humanity and the World in general is concerned. I doubt if the majority of people on this planet realize just how important the Amazon jungle is to us all, not to mention the wildlife and indigenous natives that live there.

This old Cree Indian saying says it all; When all the trees are cut down, When all the animals are dead, When all the waters are poisoned, When all the air is unsafe to breathe, Only then will we discover, We cannot eat money.
