Amazonian deforestation rates are
used to determine human effects on the global carbon cycle and to measure Brazil's
progress in curbing forest impoverishment. But this widely used measure of tropical land
use tells only part of the story. Here we present field surveys of wood mills and forest
burning across Brazilian Amazonia which show that logging crews severely damage 10,000 to
15,000 km2 yr-1 of forest that are not included in
deforestation mapping programmes.
Moreover, we find that surface
fires burn additional large areas of standing forest, the destruction of which is normally
not documented. Forest impoverishment due to such fires may increase dramatically when
severe droughts provoke forest leaf-shedding and greater flammability; our regional
water-balance model indicates that an estimated 270,000 km2 of forest
became vulnerable to fire in the 1998 dry season. Overall, we find that present estimates
of annual deforestation for Brazilian Amazonia capture less than half of the forest area
that is impoverished each year, and even less during years of severe drought. Both logging
and fire increase forest vulnerability to future burning and release forest carbon stocks
to the atmosphere, potentially doubling net carbon emissions from regional land-use during
severe El Niño episodes.
If this forest impoverishment is to
be controlled, then logging activities need to be restricted or replaced with low-impact
timber harvest techniques, and more effective strategies to prevent accidental forest
fires need to be implemented.

Last Amazon-tree to be cut down in 2023!
From our correspondent -Sao Paulo, Wednesday
The Brazilian government has finally admitted that the destruction of the Amazon
rainforest has dramatically accelerated. In 1995 de-forestation is at more than double the
1994 rate. As could be shown from satellite pictures finally released yesterday (Jan. 27,
The government had kept the condemning pictures a secret. In the past 20 years the
Amazon has been reduced by nearly a quarter of a million kilometers. If this rate is kept
up, the last tree will fall in the year 2023!
Smog crossing Valleys and Oceans
Cheer up life aint so bad or is it now? Heck, what are the Asians
From a leading US financial newspaper, Investors Business Daily, December 8, 1998
Industrial Smog Crossing Pacific
Scientists have documented for the first time that industrial pollution and dust from
Asia travel across the Pacific and degrade U.S. air quality.
The main concern is fine particles of industrial and soot from Asian factories, where
pollution controls are weak. These particles lodge deeply in the lungs and are believed
linked to respiratory disease.
HempFarm.com is enabling a HempWorld through cultivation of Industrial-Hemp* around the World. Many farmers are interested and need
additional crops to grow and rotate these with existing crops to maintain the ecological
balance in their soil. Also, Industrial-Hemp is a very effective way to get a field
weed-free (without herbicides!), since Hemp outgrows any other plant on the face of
this planet including weeds. Furthermore, Industrial-Hemp loosens the soil down to 8 feet
deep, and it de-toxifies soil from heavy metals. Industrial-Hemp needs very little water
or care after planting and it re-plenishes the soil with the nutrients it needed to grow!
