    Everything's in the rainforests and they're being clearing away, the genetic resources alone being lost...it's staggering.

    This brings to mind the movie Medicine Man. I don't think I will ever forget the end of the movie. The reality of the situation hit me very hard. The message was very loud and very clear. A "simple" act of man can do untold damage. We perhaps will never know just how much damage we have done and will do in the future.
