I first blogged this in January 2021. Let’s hope that with Lula ousting the idiot Bolsonaro that the forests of Brazil will be restored.
First off, this isn’t a Brazilian tree but I’m using it to illustrate a problem. Second, there are probably no countries that are truly clean and green and living sustainably within the ability of the planet to regenerate. That said Brazil is currently one of the worst countries in the world for forest destruction. So the saying on their national flag is rather meaningless because if the destruction of forests and extinction of tree species is order and progress then the human monkey species has got the meaning of the words seriously wrong. Take the case of the iconic and distinctive Araucaria tree. They have been part of Brazil’s Atlantic forest for hundreds of thousands of years long before the descendants of Europeans drew the imaginary line on the continent of South America, https://theconversation.com/climate-breakdown-is-pushing-brazils-iconic-araucaria-tree-to-extinction-new-research-123068?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20September%2011%202019%20-%201406813256&utm_content=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20September%2011%202019%20-%201406813256+CID_1faadc5548eba903dffbb5148a125fe3&utm_source=campaign_monitor_uk&utm_term=Climate%20breakdown%20is%20pushing%20Brazils%20iconic%20Araucaria%20tree%20to%20extinction%20%20new%20research. In the 20th century Ordem y Progresso led to 97% of them being cut down and now human caused climate change could finish them off. What are the reasons for this species and others demise? Quite simply too many human monkeys and there is no sign of any plans to even stabilise that population so many more species of not just trees but species from insects to animals will disappear as the ridiculous mantra of Ordem y Progresso continues. As I mentioned I have only used Brazil as an example of a global human problem, one we will not deal with. Humanity needs to start acting as an intelligent species and not a huge swam of locusts.
