Sky Message

This startling photograph has just been posted by
to highlight the destruction of the Amazon  forests


So much like a noble tree
But the opposite is what we see.
This picture, taken from the air
Shows a tree that is not really there!
The roads, the trunk; bare earth, the leaves.
Big Business laughs; Mother Nature grieves.
Dear Readers, please sign the petition!
AVAAZ is on a mighty mission!
Soon the World's Lungs will be gone.
Help to save the Amazon!
