Dear [World Leader’s Name]
The saving of the tropical rainforests are fundamental in counteracting global warming, severe wind control, carrying of seasonal rains and in maintaining the balance of this amazing ecosystem which affects us all. This has been stated by the scientific community who have also acknowledged that a breakdown of the tropical rainforest ecosystem would release vast quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and raise global temperatures beyond a point of no-return.
Why then is it not the leaders of the world top priority to save them? We realise that some countries are aware of the importance of the rainforests, namely France, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of Congo and to some extent Brazil but they cannot do this alone – it must be a global effort and it does not help when countries such as USA, China and European nations continue the demand for tropical woods and soya for cattle feed.
We also understand countries are carrying out ‘scientific’ work to establish the workings of the Earth’s ecosystems but with respect, by the time you have this data which we might point out does not include ‘chance’, it will be too little too late.
Trees need to be planted as soon as possible in the equatorial regions and the Northern Hemisphere to salvage some kind of balance we humans have been so ignorant in maintaining. Through knowledge comes the power, all of the peoples and countries aware of what is to be done, have the power to act to save this beautiful diverse world and give back so much of what we have taken which has fed and clothed us and has given so many so much.
We are asking you as the leader of your country to actively push for the end of rainforest destruction and to find ways to conserve these forests by helping the countries that own them. By doing this, you are helping your people by counteracting the worse that climate change can bring, and it is far better for your economy to save the forests than to pay out billions on rebuilding your country devastated by climate change.
We look forward to your reply.
