Even 1, miles inland it is still 7 miles wide. As terrible as these catastrophes would be for us, they can be repaired within a few generations. It is now understood by bioprospectors that the tribal peoples of the rainforest represent the key to finding new and useful tropical forest plants.
The cattle operation never made a profit, but government write-offs sheltered huge logging profits earned off of logging other land in the Brazilian rainforest owned by the same investors. These government development schemes rarely make a profit, as they are actually selling cheap beef to industrialized nations.

What If There Were No Trees? How do people adapt to an environment where there are no trees?. The Great Plains tribes of North America lived in a physical region known as a prairie. These large trees were created in their fully mature state on the day they were created.
This destroys the theory that the earth is millions of years old. Our earth is only about 6, years old.If there were no trees
