Brazil is considered "the lungs of earth". At the same time, it is one of the countries in which more ecological catastrophes occur.
The latest is a toxic spill from a paper factory -the last time it was verified for enviromental procedures was in 1995- which has covered the rivers with foam, killed countless fish and left half a million people without water.

Some of the enviromental problems are because of greed. Others, because of poverty -landless peasants burn parts of the forests in order to raise crops, and affect ecosystems-.
Local politics plays a part -perhaps the irregular factory gives contributions to a governor's campaign, perhaps the peasants will vote for the official who closed his/her eyes to their land invasion- but the whole world is affected.
Do you think a global attitude towards these tragedies?
If so, what attitude?
