Forests

Today I watched a documentary about the fight to save the rainforest in the amazon basin.
The presenter was Ross Kemp. It was informative but it got me thinking.
The essence of the programme was that they need to do more to prevent de-forestation. The Brazilians that is.
I do agree however. I life in Scotland and its not that long ago that most of Scotland was covered in pine/birch woodland. These days we have very little left. There is plenty commercial forest but very little natural woodland.
So I ask the question, what right do we have to lecture the Brazilians about saving the Amazonian rainforest when we can’t preserve our own?
Surely as I mentioned the other day. We should start all conservation in our locality. We should first look at what we can do in our own country before we lecture anyone else!
