Cool Earth.

Johan Eliasch, a buisnessman, has purchased 400,000 acres of Brazilian Rain Forest for £8 million in order to preserve it.  Frank Field, a Labour MP got in touch with Mr Eliasch and now they have set up a scheme called “Cool Earth”.  This allows members of the public to buy small plots of rain forest and ban loggers from cutting down the trees.

The scheme will be launched over the next three months.  I am pleased to think that there are people about who care enough to implement such a scheme and have the  foresight to help save the planet.
