Quote of the Week

“Google Earth have a new kind of cell phone which the local people [in Tanzania and Uganda] can use with GPS but also video. It allows them to map deforested areas by filling in data points—here the forests are being cut down, here there are new trees.
“If communities can demonstrate that they are having an impact in terms of restoring their forests then they get this money from the carbon polluters.”

- Jane Goodall, quoted in an AFP story about her efforts regarding population control and environmental management.
