If it is what is left? Back then they made it sound like there wouldn’t be a tree left by the 2000’s.
It slowed down dramatically around 2004, but it's still happening. Around 19% has been lost since 1970.
In all seriousness, the coral reef right now is being destroyed and the oceans are dying, making the rainforest issue seem like a trivial issue in comparison. Check out a guy by the name of Rob Stewart who produced a movie called The Revolution Movie. It’s scary. Essentially once the coral reef goes, marine life will follow suit subsequently with mass extinction. We’re not talking 100 years from now either. This could happen in 2040s. Once the oceans die, this place is up for grabs.
On that happy note, the ratings for Raw this week don’t really matter that much
