This is a very old petition. Don't forward it to anyone because the problem simply does not exist anymore.

  Dear all,

  The Brazilian congress is now voting on a project that
  will reduce the Amazon forest to 50% of its size. It will take 1
  MINUTE to read this,but PLEASE put your names on the list and forward 
  this on
  as instructed below.
  First, some facts: the Amazon rainforest is responsible for the 
  of 20% of the oxygen that we on this earth breathe,30% of the world's
  freshwater is contained within the Amazon basin, 60%of the cancer  
  drugs used today are derived from plants that can only be found within 
  Amazon rainforest.
  The area to be deforested is 4 times the size of Portugal and would be
  mainly used for agriculture and pastures for livestock. All the wood is 
  be sold to international markets in the form of wood chips, by large
  multinational companies. The truth is that the soil in the Amazon 
  forest is
  useless without the forest itself. Its quality is very acidic and the 
  is prone to constant floods. At this time more than160,000 square
  kilometres deforested with the same purpose are abandoned and in the
  process of becoming deserts, meaning that this proposal is in
  the short-term interests of a few, & in the long term interests ofnone.
  Please copy (cut & paste) the entire text into a 'new
  e-mail', put yourcomplete name in the list below, and send to everyone
  you know.
