This report – Green Carbon, Black Trade – by UNEP and INTERPOL focuses on illegal logging and its impacts on the lives and livelihoods of often some of the poorest people in the world set aside the environmental damage. It underlines how criminals are combining old fashioned methods such as bribes with high tech methods such as computer hacking of government web sites to obtain transportation and other permits. The report spotlights the increasingly sophisticated tactics being deployed to launder illegal logs through a web of palm oil plantations, road networks and saw mills.

I am not comfortable calling myself an environmentalist. The world has failed in its bid to protect and conserve the natural resources.

This report is very important to preserve our environment and natural ressources. So, if we need a nice world, it's so much necessary to keep the forest protecting in her state.

Don't destroye our forest for having a nice environment.
