OVERVIEW & COMMENTARY
by Dr. Glen Barry, Ecological Internet

It is reported that plans to build a massive South American natural gas pipeline through the Amazon rainforest from the Caribbean to Brazil have "cooled off". This was the most atrocious of many inappropriate industrial developments planned for the Amazon which Ecological Internet has publicized and protested against for several years. No rainforest is ever protected indefinitely, as badly conceived projects tend to linger on for a long time. Yet given a one and a half year delay and signs that momentum for the project has been stymied, Ecological Internet is ready to declare this campaign a victory!

Congratulations to all those that participated, the Amazon rainforest is safer given your efforts. Ecological Internet's Earth Action Network first brought concerns over the pipeline to a global stage in February of 2006, issuing several alerts, to which 8,792 participants sent 75,765 protest emails over nearly a year. As the international profile of the twisted project grew, so did local protests on environmental and economic grounds. As is our intent, our efforts inspired grassroots global Earth activism.

It is vital for the Earth's and humanity's future to protect as global ecological reserves all remaining large contiguous and mostly intact natural ecosystems from industrial development of any type. To ensure continued sustainability of global biosphere functions, rich societies must pay for avoided deforestation and diminishment of ancient rainforests/forests, and encourage small-scale eco-forestry sustainable development activities by local peoples as the only acceptable ancient ecosystem use. Otherwise the Earth and her humanity will die a horrific death. g.b.
