Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Whatever happened to that rainforest thing?
emnmnmeHeard about this on conservative radio:regular
Growing up in the 90s, I remember a lot more being said about preserving the rainforest, at least here in America. Then, awareness for teens and tweens about slashing and burning seemed to be higher than it is now thanks to Captain Planet and Fern Gully, a few 'adopt an acre' newspaper ads and a load of TV commercials, and Sean Connery's Medicine Man. Ugh, I think every one of my high school science teachers showed Medicine Man in class at least once.
Nowadays, though, you hear about global warming and emissions and read about recycling drives and going green, but not a peep about the rainforest burning. Has the rainforest problem been solved or is it because we just got bored hearing about how a football field-sized chunk of ancient trees is destroyed every five seconds? This makes me wonder if we're going to be buzzing about global warming in a decade or if it will fade away, too.
