This is a great article and video segment about what The Brazilian government has approved for the Amazon. The people who live in the villages along the Amazon depend on the river and the land to survive. They are completely untouched by the outside world and would like to keep it that way.
Unfortunately, the Brazilian government is going to construct “massive hydro dams all along the Amazon.” They say in this article that “It’s shaping up as the world’s biggest ever environmental battle.”
