This Papuan chief is fighting to protect the forest

We don’t talk about it much but Papua New Guinea is also suffering the consequences of deforestation. Papuan chief Mundiya Kepanga has been traveling the world to remind us of the need to preserve the environment. This is his message.

    As soon as you start deforestation on that huge scale. You will change the local climate. In permaculture and forest gardening, one of the first things you learn is how you can create and change climatic zones.

    All of the jungle around Alotau in New Guinea has been destroyed for palm oil plantations.

    It should also be known that the Australian government has supported massive deforestation and mining projects in West Papua. They and a handful of selfish, short-sighted, and greedy individuals are making a killing, and the Australian media is even banned from reporting about it...

    And yet is over weight from eating animals and flew in a plane. He needs to comprehend that is also being a hypocrite. To really care about the planets forest humans must also be vegan and NOT exploit animals.

    It's just as important to care about animals and not obhectify, kill and eat non human animals. It's ALL related and the ecosystems regarding environments are only part of issues.
