Sign the petition pls. Days for Dilma veto: the pressure is building!

I know that there are quite a few people stumbling up on this blog daily and I’d like to ask all of you to help on veto-ing a new bill which would allow deforestation of a large part of the Brazilian Amazon. This deforestation would affect everyone of you around the world as these trees produce the oxygen you breath. You have to sign the petition TODAY as this is a short term decision.

LINK TO SIGN THE PETITION. It literally takes 30 seconds to do it!

The Brazilian Congress has just passed a catastrophic forestry bill that gives loggers and farmers free rein to cut down huge swaths of the Amazon. Now only President Dilma can stop it.

Fortunately, the timing is on our side — in weeks Dilma will host the world’s biggest environmental summit and insiders say she cannot afford to open it as the leader who approved the destruction of the rainforest. She’s facing mounting domestic pressure, with 79% of Brazilians rejecting this new bill. Now, if we join them we can turn up the global heat and push her to axe the bill, not the rainforest.

      Over 150 unique views of my blog since I posted the link to the petition and only 4 have clicked the petition link… You still believe this planet has a chance?! 😀

        Trying is sure fun though. Those 4 clicks might have been me and since I had already signed it by mom’s email invitation, the picture is looking more gloomy now….cheers! 🙂
