FOMURECO is a World Ecological Organization, based in Brazil, with the main objective of launching ideas and complementing a series of debates and discussions about the environment and guaranteeing a quality future for future generations. The Forum is a solution to discuss the environmental problems of various nations. We simply intend to protect the environment in Brazil and in the world.

BENEFITS OF REFORESTATION

- Preservation and restoration of degraded ecosystems; • Soil erosion control and landslide prevention; • Provision of shelter and food for the fauna; • Prevention of siltation of rivers and dams; • Retention of air pollutants; • Property appreciation; • Reduction of the global warming process; • Landscape beautification and reduction of noise pollution in cities; • Temperature control, keeping it 5 to 9 degrees below that recorded in tree-free regions.
About 8 million tons of plastic waste is thrown into the oceans annually, scientists say. That amount could cover 34 times the entire Manhattan Island area of New York with a layer of trash at a person's knees. In addition, it exceeds 20 to 2,000 times the previous calculations on the mass of plastic carried by ocean currents. The new study is considered one of the best efforts to quantify the plastic dumped, burned or dragged to the sea. According to the researchers, the analysis can also help uncover the total amount of plastic in the ocean today - not just the material that is found on the surface or on beaches. Large amounts of waste may be hidden deep in the ocean floor or broken into pieces so small that they are not captured by conventional analysis. These particles are being ingested by sea creatures - which can result in unknown consequences.
You may have heard the words "greenhouse effect", "global warming" and "climate change" out there, but do you really know what they are? Our planet is suffering today from the consequences of a process that humans began centuries ago. Since the invention of large steam engines, the Industrial Revolution has made humans constantly increase their ability to produce various products. Factories were built and more people were employed in the emerging industries. This generated significant gains in the economy and allowed a much wider range of society to access various commodities. It was the beginning of an era that promised to bring only growth and prosperity to all. But since then few people have wondered how this transformation affects the environment in which we live.
The extraction of oil on the high seas is a high risk activity. Historically in Brazil we have several records of occasions when thousands of barrels of oil were leaked into the waters, which is easily transported by sea currents and has a huge environmental impact. Recently the leak occurred in the Northeast, considering by some experts the greatest environmental tragedy in the history of our country. Petroleum is a fossil fuel that has more than 200 hydrocarbons. Benzene, being a carcinogen, is considered the most toxic of all. Even if the tar that reaches the beaches is removed, these chemicals continue to circulate in the ocean without anyone noticing with the naked eye. The optimistic scenario is that some of these areas do not have the presence of benzene, even those that had some contact with the oil. The pessimist is the benzene contamination
