Orellana and the Amazon

Should the Amazon Rainforest be saved or should the countries involved be able to use and develop it in any way they wish?

The Amazon Rainforest provides many important benefits to the world. Cutting down the Rainforest offers the countries involved the chance to sell valuable resources to help its people and reduce national debt.

Good point. They should do both. Why would they put the people in jail though? There are a lot of people that destroy the rainforests. Then so many people would be in jail. Maybe one of those people is the President? President in jail? How would they be the president then? Well, you both have good points. They need to do something about it. And very fast. More plants and trees are getting cut down right this minute.
