Dear Editor,

A major cause of global warming is deforestation.
This is particularly the case with the Amazon rainforest, which has a large percentage of all types of flora and fauna'smuch of which could be important for future medical discoveries.
People worldwide should write to their lawmakers asking them to outlaw the sale of products made from the destruction of non-replaced trees, from strip mining or from conversion to cattle grazing land.
This might mean less growth in the production of new beef and dairyproducts, but red meat isn't that healthy anyway, and there are plenty of excellent substitutes for dairy products.
