      Wierd, when I see the BC article in Firefox the video doesn’t show at all. In Opera I click the link from your article and it goes to a FB page saying the video is not available. When I go to the DDN FB page the video shows and plays. WTF?

      Someone once said that – “Civilisation has marched across the face of the planet and left deserts in its footsteps.” Sadly, to a greater or lessor extent, we are all part of that civilisation and the Amazon will just be the latest footstep.

Scary stuff, feels like real End of Days right now.
