Brazil: How Americans View
RH: I had a hard time downloading the attachments, but as far as I could see the story was based on a report from a Brazilian woman in the US. I suspect that the text simply meant that the climate of the world depends on the Amazon rain forest, which is therefore the responsibility of humanity. I would be grateful if someone would look at David Norman's book and tell us what i actually says. By an interesting coincidence, a major exhibition is being held in the Grand Palais of Paris devoted to the Indians of Amazonia, The theme is that they are noble savages whose life is being destroyed by prospectors and land grabbers. The murder of an American nun there shows how ruthless the invaders are. There is widespread concern that the Amazon rain forest is being destroyed, doing irreparable damage to the world climate. The Brazilian government is doing almost nothing. David Norman's book may simply express this concern.
