ISSUE – DEFORESTATION: Map illustrates last 17 years of deforestation and the end is not in sight. You will be startled!

Keep in mind as you review these maps for 2001, 2010, and 2017, our forests are the “lungs” of the earth and we are systematically destroying them.

DEFORESTATION – Based on the definition and the belief that endemic forests are removed and replaced by a GMO tree farm commercial crop. Google “clearcut and scarification”. It’s what we do in NB and elsewhere in the area. The impacts are far beyond the forest 50% cover loss depicted here. However, these maps show the increased cutting over this time period. A trip to Google Earth time sequences is even more frightening.
