it is not always
about the goal,
you who slash, burn,
sever the whole.
you who cannot see
beyond the smoke,
and the haze
of the foulest of
motives
a scenario,
dazed.
our orange brothers,
and
others,
of world so small
any more of this
they will have
no world at all.

    Why are these companies not held liable for the disasters they cause!?! Im sure they have insurance for such related expenses,but theres no such thing for these creatures,their forest homes,the environment, to fall back on! Is there not any laws concerning such disregard to consequence?or companies are allowed to wreak havoc without regret to anything other than $$$

    I agree with Westy. Companies responsible for such disasters should be held liable for what they do. No doubt they have insurances but they don’t care. They destroy the forests and their inhabitants, a.o. orangutans that only live there, as well as the lives of native people.
    It’s sickening.

    Surely we need the worlds different governments to get together and protect the rainforests and the animals and people who depend on them . It does seem at present the rest of the worlds powers that be , are sitting back and letting a few companies destroy the worlds natural forests and animals just to make more profit ?
