Brazil: great President, Congress bad.

While Dilma Roussef hits each day more, "pulling" the leveling of interest of the Brazilian public debt to international levels and begins to devise an industrial policy firmly grounded in a serious exchange rate policy and in science and technology, in addition to important tax cuts, Congress is the scene of successive corruption scandals, all them originated in the

While Dilma Roussef hits each day more, "pulling" the leveling of interest of the Brazilian public debt to international levels and begins to devise an industrial policy firmly grounded in a serious exchange rate policy and in science and technology, in addition to important tax cuts, Congress is the scene of successive corruption scandals, all them originated in the corporate funding of campaigns and in "not very corporate" funding of campaigns, and approves, with a rapporteur funded by the agro-business, apocalyptic Forest Code: A million square KM to the devastation.
*1 mile = 1,6 KM
About five Brazilian states such as Paraná, is what the Chamber of Deputies booked to destruction, sonn, approving the new and regrettable Forest Code.
The Legal Amazon is about 5.2 million square km big, almost 62% of Brazilian territory, and the new law reserves 20% of the properties to general cultures, as soy or cattle.
As the soil of the Amazon is very thin, brought by the waters and built by the forest with rotting logs, leaves, carcasses, feces, seeds and other natural features, the felling of trees stops soil fixing and the multimilenar reconstruction of the ground and exports the soil in the form of soy, or disaggregates it with the weight of thousands of heads of cattle livestock.
The only acceptable form of cultivation in the Amazon are Agroforestry Regenerative Analog Systems, of Ernst Götsch, that exploit the forest sustainably, its active pharmacological principles and make a policultural agriculture inside and around the forest, with economic results far superior, usable by much more people, eternal and without bequeath a desert to our children and grandchildren. The work of Götsch is easy to find on the web, including YouTube and numerous masters and doctoral theses (coming in english soon).
Götsch relies on the natural succession of species and on contributing to soil and environment of each successive consortium of plants, animals and micro-organisms, to make a policultural farming, as already reported, without chemical fertilizers or defensives, because the very nature takes care of that. Of course, he cultivates exotic plants too, but does so by looking closely at the costs and environmental benefits of their adaptation. Sure he is a deep connoisseur of botany and certainly we need our universities and research centers supporting the farmers.
We ask God to enlighten the members about their own very dangerous disinformation, waiting they to desist from adopting the code or that our President Dilma veto it at least at its more apocalyptic passages.
The alternative of the Brazilian people will be to come in with a bill of popular initiative, putting things in their proper places, as happened with the "Law of Clean Record". In fact, Greenpeace has been already collecting thousands of signatures for a bill of popular initiative, according to the Brazilian constitution, called "zero deforestation".
In time: I have been repeatedly harassed in Brazil hotmail, Brazil facebook, Brazil Google and Brazil twitter, for someone obsessed, which I call "my personal-hacker", "Mary the Mad Queen of Portugal". If you can trigger these prestigious organizations to identify this tormented-soul and prevent it from acting, I will be very grateful. Is really big the brother that is watching us?
