Angry Brazilian Letter

Extracts from this document...


Cramlington Learning village Highburn Northumberland NE23 6BN Dear Mr Angry Brazilian, I am writing in response to your letter that I received last week about the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. We are sorry if any offence was taken due to this article this article, our intention was not to offend any readers but to raise the awareness about the deforestation that occurs in the Amazon, and to inform the readers of the matter.

Finally I disagree as you mentioned about the UK buying many items of furniture bought made out of tree's from the Amazon So even though Britain may have cut some trees down unintentionally, they have promoted other ways to save energy and save the environment rather than keep doing the wrong.
