Climate Change and Tropical Forests

Students who helped found Save the Rainforest in 1988
It will take decades for us to develop and deploy clean energy technologies, but with a determined effort we can end deforestation in the tropics by 2030—thereby putting the brakes on climate change. The video, made by students from Castle View High School, CO, shows how supporting indigenous people in the Amazon can stop deforestation.  It can be accessed on the Save the Rainforest URL link above (scroll to the bottom of the page).
