  • Thanks for representing me so well! They are beautiful images of the Amazon... I'll tell you a little more ...

    'It [the Amazon] of a great amphitheater in the lowlands, contained between the inner arc of land sub-Andean and the Guiana Highlands and the Brazilian Highlands.' - Aziz Nacib Ab'Sáber

    The Amazon is the largest forest region and basin in the world. It occupies much of the northern hemisphere South America, accounting for the Brazilian to 42% of the country. It extends from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the foothills of the Andes in the west. Spreads through Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, making up more than 6 million km2. The Amazon valley is to the south, still fueled by the rivers that descend from the Brazilian Central Plateau and the coming of the Guayana region to the north, and the fillets in ice water they give off the 'Andean hump' so it ends by assuming - as the noted American geologist CF Marbut, who visited him in 1923 - the shape of a fan, by which drips 1 / 5 of world's fresh water. The essayist Northerner Raymundo Moraes, in turn, considered it, the valley, like an amphitheater, the 'amphitheater Amazon.'

    Due to its inaccessibility, poor health and the difficulties to exploit it economically, the Amazon is one of the most sparsely populated areas of the globe is a Green Desert, belonging to a time when the Earth still dawn, housing a population of more primitive than known - the Neolithic man in a pure state. For others, like Peter of Rates Hanequim, who lived for over twenty years in Brazil, had been the abode of Adam and where was the Tree of Life. So sure he had to have inhabited the Earthly Paradise - the largest being the Amazon River of Eden - which, to return to Portugal, left to process and execute - 'drowned and burned - in 1744, by order of a Court the Holy Office for the crime of heresy and apostasy, without ever having sought clemency.

    The various governments, Brazilians and neighbors, today it includes looking promoting its occupation by both miners, by extractive, for backland, livestock or mining companies. The result is the intense burning, or burning, ancient Indian method of clearing the land for farming. Mato Grosso Roraima to the smoke takes the air and sometimes completely escapes the control. This is one of the fears of the ecologist Robert Goodland and Irwin botanical Howard that 'green hell become a red desert,' as the subtitle of their book.

    The fate of the Amazon - 'lungs of the world' - so worried have the most diverse institutions, both the UN and local non-governmental environmental groups, who fear any time a disaster irreversible. The Brazilian government faces pressure from all sides to try to curb predatory occupation, while it is politically constrained by domestic interests which triggers the advantages, exemptions and benefits to groups, companies or classes, to accelerate their economic exploitation. This tension between the international calls and meet local needs for growth, Brasilia will alternate in the years, his policies for the region...


    Hugs from Brazil!
