Save the Amazon!

1,8 million have signed the petition - Let's reach 2 million! 
I have signed it, and so should you!

Brazil's Congress has just passed a bill that gives loggers and farmers free rein to cut down huge swaths of the Amazon. Only President Dilma can veto it(and a decision will come this week, so hurry to sign it!). Domestic pressure is mounting, but a massive global outcry will prove her international reputation is at stake. The Amazon is vital to life on earth -- 20% of our oxygen comes from this magnificent rainforest, and it plays a key role in mitigating global climate change.

Let's tip her over the edge to stop the Amazon chainsaw massacre -- 
sign the urgent petition and tell everyone!
