Default Help stop forests being sold off to private companies

As part of the measures to try and reduce spending, the government is planning to sell large areas of nationally-run forest to private business...

Petition: 38 Degrees | Save Our Forests

To put what this means in perspective - the Avatar bluray launch had over 1 million trees planted, while this puts 30 million at risk.

damn i tried to sign it but it said invalid postcode...i guess you have to be a resident of whatever country this is happening in. anyway, it's too bad that this is happening, to turn forests into hotels or golf courses is just ****ing stupid. i guess people now days prefer to get away from the city life....and enjoy peace and quiet in a hotel rather than actual natural peace and quiet -_-

Good call! That was really starting to piss me off. I'll fight this damn private and corporate development to my last breath, whatever I can do.

I asked my friends on Facebook to sign it as well.

Yeah, do this - it's like typing some random digits as a US postcode - it doesn't actually make sense but automated systems accept it.

Thanks for the support, everyone

Both illegal and unethical.


And why internet petitions usually accomplish nothing. Because half the signatures are bots or don't even live in the same country.

As has become my "theme" of sorts lately, I'm going to suggest that you actually spend some time writing a letter/email to a member of your government, expressing dissatisfaction, if enough people actually took the time to do this, something might actually get accomplished.

So a forest isn't worth one little white lie? IMO what would really be unethical is letting the corporatists get there hands on these forests and do god-knows-what to them. Wow, you really are one for the status quo. C'mon, don't be such a stiff.

And for some weird reason I had a feeling you'd be coming to this thread.

You're still lying. You can try to spin yourself a cloak of righteousness regarding your cause, but you're still a liar. This is just another reason I dislike the far left, anything goes if its "for the cause".

It's all about weighing the consequences of lying vs the consequences of not lying. If a small lie will save a forest, then by god I'm going to lie. I might be a liar, but I'm a liar that has saved thousands of trees and animals. Are you telling me you will never lie to protect life?

Moral absolutism is just self-righteous mental masturbation.

It's called having standards.


Hate all you want, but I'm not the one betraying my ethics.

Eh.

I have standards too, but I'm not afraid to swallow my pride and break them if it's for the greater good. Sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do.
