The not so lost tribe

Recently the photographer came clean that the supposedly unknown "lost" tribe in the amazon was a hoax. Read more about it at this link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-grann/the-truth-about-the-lost_b_172910.html and this link: http://buzz.yahoo.com/buzzlog/91536 .

It is interesting that we all thought it was true.  -- and how little coverage there was of the dangers of logging. I would guess that is why they came clean, so that their true purpose could be known. Mike Krumboltz said that they changed the facts about this real tribe (but a tribe that had been known about since 1910) trying to bring more attention to them, so that their ulterior motive of proclaiming the dangers of logging would be more widespread.

I recently visited a home with Brazilian hardwood floors. It was beautiful. But now I have to wonder where the wood came from, and what the implications were of logging it.
