Deforestation in Brazil

In honor of the World Cup and the controversies about Brazil hosting the World Cup, I want to bring up another thing that is happening in Brazil...deforestation.  Already, 2,256 square miles of land in Brazil have been cleared of trees for grazing land for cattle.  Instead of allowing the Earth's lungs (the forests) to be destroyed, let's think of some ways to stop this process.  For example, we should think before we consume so much beef.  Cows require an immense amount of water and grass to grow.  If we each eliminate meat from our diet just a couple times a week, it would make a huge difference in terms of our environment.  Why don't you join me in helping to stop the deforestation of the rain forests?
