“Canada Just Protected A Rainforest Twice The Size Of Belgium”

The title is in quotes because they are taken fromĀ  a headline in The Huffington Post.

The article continues “Environmentalists are hailing the Canadian government’s landmark deal to protect 85 percent of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia from logging and development — an area more than twice the size of Belgium.”

It is remarkable how yet again we see a multiple of Belgium being used when the 6.4 million hectares being protected are close to the actual size of Latvia or Sri Lanka.
