Deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest

Researchers keep tabs on deforestation in the Amazon by satellite imagery, but to know the reality of what’s causing it, you have to be on the ground. Watch this video of researchers Robert Walker’s and Eugenio Arima’s recent Amazon adventure.

  1. SPRINKLER SYSTEMS !!!
    If NGO's or Governments don't want the Precious Forest get burned. They can Install SPRINKLER ( A fire sprinkler system ) in them.

    A fire sprinkler system is an active fire protection measure, consisting of a water supply system, providing adequate pressure and flowrate to a water distribution piping system, onto which fire sprinklers are connected. Although historically only used in factories and large commercial buildings, systems for homes and small buildings are now available at a cost-effective price. Fire sprinkler systems are extensively used worldwide, with over 40 million sprinkler heads fitted each year. In buildings completely protected by fire sprinkler systems, over 99% of fires were controlled by fire sprinklers alone. ( Credits : wikipedia.org )

  2. THE COLOSSAL JUNGLE BELONGS TO THE BRAZILIANS!!!
    WE ARE ALL VERY PROUD OF HAVING THIS GIGANTIC RAINFOREST!!!
    THE FILTHY YANKEES AND EUROTURDS ARE DYING OF JEALOUSY AND CAN'T STOP CRITICIZING US BUT THEY WILL NEVER STEAL OUR LAND!!!!
    I LOVE YOU BRAZIL AND I WILL DIE DEFENDING MY COUNTRY!!!

  3. 93% of all Amazonian deforestation, it turns out, is due to animal agriculture. This is primarily a cattle problem.

  4. 1% of the amazons are lost a year at least the deforestation isn't as bad as It was in the 90s but still not good.

  5. Do you feel affected by deforestation ? Watch now the trailer of the documentary El Gran Dragon before its national release on the 5th of March 2014, leave a comment in Allocine

    The Great Dragon is the story of an expedition to Peru, in search of an ancestral knowledge, on the verge of extinction. By meeting many people, we wanted to discover the origins of traditional medicine, a way to understand the basis of occidental medication. How and why have we become so distant from natural remedies, to the point where we no longer remember all the lessons they taught us.

  6. Man!! this such a good music video to suuucchhh a good song! great work guys! 😀 #thanks #YOLO #SWAG #YOLOSWAG

  7. I wonder if the indigenous people were tricked or threatened into providing their land for logging.

  8. Awesome story, too short, and horribly edited… switching between narrators every 10 seconds is annoying as all hell.

  9. You don't me, but my name's Red Gai.. I'm just the The Peninsula child kidnapper. But it seems like trees might be worth a try. So I say.. Let it grooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow

  10. the stumps look like gravestones it's like an all out foot soldier battle happened there and the bodies were buried on the spot
