A Worldwide Tragedy

Marcílio de Freitas and Marilene Corrêa da Silva Freitas

The Future of Amazonia in Brazil: A Worldwide Tragedy is a study on the importance of protecting Amazonia, constructing its sustainable development and its articulations with worldwide socioeconomic processes. It analyzes the main contemporary polemics from the perspective of culture and the nature sciences. The authors present the importance of Amazonia and the sustainability to mankind and the planet’s future. They warn governments, politicians, teachers, students, environmentalists and societies in general that its ecological destruction is ongoing. This book shows that the predatory capitalism has no heuristic reach to build peace, and at the same time exploit the resources of nature preserving its biomes and the natural cycles. Political actions to make Amazonia into patrimony of mankind start to gain predictable contours. The authors present new ways for Amazonia and mankind.
