  1. I think Al Gore narrates this movie. It's an inconvenient reality. I stopped watching after 5 minutes because it's bias was soooo obvious. I thought I'd see an expose about the Amazon but it's not that at all.

  2. Don't really know what to make of that, Typical over dramatised American shit, I guess.
    Hey 'Dumbass', tell the Truth, NO small group like this with 1 chainsaw can cut 150 trees a day, you Idiot! I must say that I have never in over 30 years of tropical forestry seen a wedge like that cut out of a tree and 'it grows back', remarkable.

  3. The rainforest are the lungs of the planet it creates so much oxygen from the pollution of this world. These people are just ignorant. This is why the human race in general will be our own destruction, maybe it would be a good thing for the human race to be "thinned out" like the Amazon is being.

  4. It is sad to read some of the comments. You can not seriously say that there is no damage to replace an old hardwood tree by planting a new seedling. Do you realize that destroying an area where there are many plants that may provide medicines to cure many incurable diseases? Do you realize that a great part of the water the rain forest produces is necessary. I cannot believe noone has educated our people to understand that the rainforest is important and necessary for everyone's survival…

  5. THE REAL CULPRITS ARE THE IMF AND THE WORLD BANK, THAT PUT BRAZIL AND OTHER 23 WORLD NATIONS TO PAY UNFATHOMABLE
    INTEREST. THEY THEY COULD SAVE THAT MONEY AND PUT IT IN TO SOCIAL WELFARE AND TECHNICAL TRAINING THE PEOPLE WE WOULD NOT SEE THIS.

  6. Stupid video … We aren't going to kill the earth by cutting down trees or global warming , the earth will kill us when it wants to ! We are just along for the ride so enjoy it while you can and stop wasting time with this shit. I wanted to watch a video about gold mining not Brazilian lumberjacks

  7. All looks good for the documentary. But the felled or "amputation" as you call it , wipes out god knows how many seedlings and smaller trees trying to reach maturity.
    Plant 100 more trees for every 1 tree you "harvest"…. that would more convince me its a thoughtful operation.

  8. "… It's a cookie jar that everyone sticks their hands into." Best analogy… I am writing a paper on Peru's illicit gold rush. I am looking for a documentary that follows a worker every step through out the gold mining process. Unfortunately these illicit business allow for very little public awareness. I actually ran into BBC footage of one of their reporters working alongside them thinking everything was jolly. He never mentioned the mercury nor the clearing of trees by the illicit logging industry. I was actually disgusted that BBC had such a nonchalant documentary that failed to raise the negative consequence on the environment and the well being of the organisms and humans within it. I feel like they will need a full on war to stop these mafiosos, but the government does not want to lose the revenue coming from the exploitation of their own land. The lack of aid and transition time for colonized states to gain their independence set up the perfect conditions for large scale and international criminals to exploit these areas. You can't even place these countries in a constructivist or realist model let alone liberal. It's anarchy within the state, social struggles are fighting too many fronts to be able to solve anything… When your police force is spread too thin and the government is making empty promises to everyone so that they can get their piece of the pie with out getting in trouble. They pass laws to make it look like they are doing something about it, but the laws are inefective because they don't have the resources to enforce them, also who in their right mind would want to go up against the mafia when you know their people are more motivated to kill you then you are to kill them. They also have better technology to go up against the police force. The government doesn't want the shit to hit the fan either and create a civil war. Everything is so convoluted in diplomacy and the natural law according to realists; The powerful get to write the rules, those that get to write the rules also don't have to abide by them, and the community is nothing with out it's alpha member.

  9. when those trees fell they dropped seeds. those seeds will regrow. seeds all over the ground… dont have nice things people. cause you kill a tree. rolls eyes. global warming BS. those trees had seeds all over them. they will regrow in 80 yrs or so. which is good for the Forrest. not a bunch of dead stuff.

  10. the rhetoric used in this video is absolutely hilarious. yes, nobody wants the destruction of a forest, but quit acting like they are they are child molesters or the like. what is being done to replace the income source of this destructive (and lucrative) business? i really doubt the locals work there because they enjoy killing forests around them, it sounds like that's the only job they can find.

  11. CARAMBA BRAZIL TOMEN MEDIDAS SOBRE ESTE ABUSO DE LA NATURALESA——-DISTRIBUYAN POLICIAS EN TODAS LAS ZONAS BOSCOSAS ACABEN CON ESOS ABUSOS.

  12. QUE HACEN ESAS PERSONAS DESTRUYENDO LOS BOSQUES , PORQUE DESTRUYEN POR DINERO MAS ES ILEGAR EN ESE PAIS POR LO QUE ESCUCHE EN EL BRAZIL, VIVAN DE OTRA COSA NO DESTRUYEN LOS PULMONES DE LA TIERRA. HABLAN QUE LAS GENTES DESAPARECEN QUIERE DECIR QUE LOS MATAN, YA DEJEN ESO DEDIQUENCEN A OTRAS COSAS —ES ILEGAL.—-DIOS DESTRUIRA LOS QUE DESTRUYEN LA TIERRA., ARREPIENTANSEN DE SUS PECADOS Y VENGAN A JESUS NO SE VAYAN A MORIR SIN PERDON , SIN DIOS, SIN FE Y SIN ESPERANZAS—ALERTA JESUS VIENE
