really liked it
bookshelves: environment

Informative and well written, but a bit on the pessimistic side. The authors present their case for halting deforestation while making some great points, but leave only a page or two at the very end for proposed solutions. Even with these last few pages, the authors don't exactly have a positive outlook for the state of our world's forests. Although I can't blame them for thinking the way they do, I strongly believe that a key to being an environmentalist is possessing a sense of optimism even in the face of the most distressing, disheartening situations.
