Petition to Brazil

Save the Earth's Jungles

We all know the terrible situation the world is in. Jungles are being cut down and we just watch them like it is our least worry. You don't know the danger we are facing. When you think of jungles being cut down, we don't mean a local factory took down a few trees. We are talking about big numbers. According to National Geographic, Brazil and Indonesia have lost 46% of their forests and in the last 50 years, and 17% of the Amazon has decayed. Over half of the world's rain forests have been cut down due to human demand for land. Before there was advanced human activity, 14% of the world was covered in rain forests. Today, only 6% of the world is covered in rain forests. These losses are getting larger and larger. Brazil encourages the destruction of forests. Many different things will happen to our Earth without our forests: There won't be much oxygen left for us Many animals and species will die We won't have any more resources left Scientific research will slow down Higher flood rates There will be stronger storms Higher chances of death Higher temperatures More erosion These all are the threats you are facing and that you can possibly help stop with the click of a few buttons. Look underneath and you will see a list of methods that the government can plan and follow with very good results. Many of these methods have been untouched up to this day. Make it illegal to enter certain preserved forests Limit organizations or companies from cutting trees Find a way to stop floods from entering rain forests due to hydroelectric projects Make mining illegal or limit their use Limit expansion of croplands and farmlands Simply restrict certain areas unless used for scientific research to prevent its clearing Require paper producing groups to recycle Signing this petition is completely your choice. You can either help the Earth or ignore it. I would suggest you sign this petition and share it with as many people as possible. The choice is completely yours. You yourself can make a big difference. You can change the world. Together we can fight Brazil's burning of the Amazon Rain Forest.

Petition to Businesses Worldwide

#AllinForClimateAction: Replant 1 Billion+ Trees in the Amazon

We are #AllinforClimateAction - if you are too, help us protect, restore and sustain the Amazon Rainforest!  Sign the petition and highlight in the comments the brands you would like to see with a #ProjectGreen product that gives back to #Amazon conservation. After the fires end, the next step is to protect, restore and sustain. We have created #ProjectGreenIsLife to ask businesses worldwide to take action. Through this petition, tell your favorite brands to create products and services that support #ProjectGreenIsLife, and join efforts with organizations like @TeadoraBeauty, @RainforestUS, the Wapichan People and many others in working with local communities and indigenous groups to rapidly expand drone monitoring programs and solar-powered native seedling nurseries.  Climate Change is a real problem, and there is no path to mitigate climate change that does not include conservation of the Amazon. We all depend on it for medicines, product ingredients, water, oxygen, and inspiration. And it is burning. This is not a problem just for Brazil, nor a reason to demonize Brazil - but it is a global crisis in the making that we all must take part in.   There are many causes to these fires, but it is all worsened by extensive and ongoing deforestation. Regardless of cause, when the fires are stopped, the damage will take years, and even generations, to restore. Please share this link and message on social media and tag your favorite companies with #ProjectGreenIsLife to get them to reach out and ACT!  Ask your favorite brands for a special launch of a service or product supporting #ProjectGreenIsLife.  #ProjectGreen Together, we can protect 1M+ acres of Amazon rainforest and replant 1B+ trees. And with your support, help build sustainable practices so that the forest is worth more standing than cut.

Petition to Amazon

Time to Give a little back Amazon. Save the Amazon.

With a great name, comes responsibility. Its time for the company named after the most important rain forest in the world to give a little back. THE LUNGS OF THE EARTH Often referred to as the lungs of the Earth, the Amazon rain forest plays a critical role as a carbon sink, mediator of the global water cycle and a cradle of biodiversity but ongoing deforestation and climate change threaten to destroy its massive system. The land area that has burned this year alone is the size of Germany. According to the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service, the fires have led to a clear spike in carbon monoxide emissions as well as planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions, posing a threat to human health and aggravating global warming. Preserving the Amazon is necessary to prevent global scale catastrophe.    Richest biodiversity on the planet 1/3 of the world’s tropical forest carbon 1/5 of the planets freshwater Home to 30 million people Produces 1/5 of the world’s oxygen ON THE VERGE OF DESTRUCTION If environmental protection continues to fail, there may soon be nothing to stop the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. Law enforcement on the borders of the rainforest is weak and the land is being seized and cleared illegally. This has implications beyond South America. The Amazon rainforest's lush forests make up the largest reserve of carbon dioxide on the surface of the earth. The CO2 released when forests are burned or bulldozed and left to decay will accelerate global warming and cause irreversible harm to a cradle of biodiversity Ongoing deforestation and climate change threaten to destroy its massive system. Cattle farming and soybean farms cause much of the damage when the land-clearing is done illegally. Roads and other infrastructure projects are an indirect driver of Amazon forest loss. Insufficient environmental planning in the infrastructure design process causes unforeseen damage.  Large areas are cleared for illegal logging, gold mining and land seizure for speculation. Environmental authorities struggle with inadequate budgets, and limited personnel and equipment. WE’RE FACING A TIPPING-POINT The situation is dire, but proper developments and investment can offer reasons for hope. Support conservation efforts by NGOs and local communities. Partner with indigenous people. Provide funding for local authorities to combat illegal activity. Plant trees in degraded areas. Support efforts to extinguish fires that are ravishing large areas of the forest. Work with farmers to encourage more sustainable agriculture practices. TIME TO GIVE A LITTLE BACK, BEZOS In 2018 alone, Amazon's net revenue was 232.88 billion US dollars with a profit of over $10 billion. If Amazon was to donate less than 1% of their revenue ($100 million), the funds could be used to help extinguish the blazes that are destroying large parts of the rainforest. In fact, with the 100 million Prime subscribers it has, Amazon could donate just $1 from each. A mere drop in the bucket could be used to replant areas and fund conservation efforts. Possible uses for the funds would be to: Purchase and man firefighting aircrafts. (Imagine your logo painted on the side of them) Support NGOs currently battling the flames. Sponsor land buyback programs.  Fund reforestation efforts.  Support local communities and authorities who take an active part in the conservation in the rainforest. Any other ideas are welcome. We're reaching a tipping point and its time for someone to step up and do something about it. We're calling on Amazon to save the Amazon.  SHOW YOUR SUPPORT  We are asking Amazon to take on part of the responsibility to save the place whose name they have taken. At the time of posting this, I have canceled the renewal of my Prime account and will be donating the cost to an environmentalist group. I will no longer be ordering from their site. It's a small gesture, but collectively we can pressure action. Together we can make a difference. If this petition gains support and there is no action from Amazon, recognize that the green they value is not the green of the rainforest canopy.  If the largest company in the world is not willing to save the largest forest in the world then I want nothing to do with it.
