The Prince's Rainforest project
is worth your attention. Prince Charles, Britain's long standing monarch in waiting directs attention to the astounding rate of loss of the world's rain forests. The most famous of these tree belts lie along the Amazon but as a whole they are scattered across an equatorial belt around the planet.

Development projects to accommodate a growing population threaten the existence of this vital ecosystem.

The project's site is headlined by a ticker counter that gives an idea of the rate of deforestation taking place. Its content outlines the logic of preservation. There is no man made technology yet available that provides a better way of collecting carbon dioxide let alone converting it to useful biomass in the way the trees do. The site explains all this and underlines the inescapable logic of preservation. Do give it look here
