Amazon: Lungs of the planet

I love the BBC (something to do with being English and brainwashed from birth.....) and have just discovered their new website called Future, where they post interesting videos, articles, quiz etc.....

I watched this short video about how the Amazon rainforest contributes to more than just the local wildlife but to the air we breathe and through destructive deforestation we are in effect destroying our air.

"..... this felling also has an impact on the planet as a whole because the forest also plays a critical role in cleaning the air we breathe.

It does this by sucking up the global emissions of carbon dioxide from things like cars, planes and power stations to name just a few."

Lots more to see.... check it out.
