    I do not deny that we are doing far more damage to the earth than we ought to, but I hope you realize that this video is more propaganda than anything else. I lived in the Amazon for 15 years, and these same scenarios happen every year. The river rises and falls 30-40 feet between the rainy season and the dry season every year. Boats get stranded. Fish and dolphins die. That is very common. This has been an abnormally dry year for the region, but notice that it was this dry 40 years ago as well, and there has been plenty of rain between then and now. Finally, I would like to point out how convenient it is for people living in comfort to criticize the way that other countries deal with their natural resources. I have lived among the people who cut down the rainforest. They are very poor and that is their livelyhood. You should be more concerned for the people who depend on the forest for their very lives than you are for your speculations of a catastrophe that may or may not come to your air-conditioned, convenience-filled, comfort-saturated lives.
