Global deforestation rate 2017

Once upon a time the green.
And all that makes part of it.
An apparently negligible, flying leaf on a melancholic movie scene.
A nice tree from a child’s drawing.
A fascinating forest in a fantasy novel.
Think about as if it was something really important.
As the main essence of the world we live in.
Like water should be.
Like every human being is.
Then, see the future we’re building on our common horizon.
When every day an area the size of New York City was lost.
So each hundred days an area the size of Scotland.
And within one year an area the size of Italy.
Once upon a time an area, a green one, not the country itself.
However, at the end of the day, do you really think there is a difference?

Buy the book:
Climate change stories, a dual language book English and Italian for all ages: True short stories about global warming effects
