Razing Old-Growth Forests

"The razing of an old-growth forest is not just the destruction of magnificent individual trees – it’s the collapse of an ancient republic whose interspecies covenant of reciprocation and compromise is essential for the survival of earth as we’ve known it."

Ferris Jabr

Why isn't razing old growth forests illegal yet? 

With very little left globally, it will be too late if we don't take immediate action.

The destruction of our old forests will go down in history as one of humanities greatest blunders, and a major cause of our eventual extinction.

It is a crime against this planet and all life on it.

And for what?

A couple of hundred years of profit?

Sad Earth Day, everyone.
