Besides, in the absence of state-supported industrial capitalism trades unions and workers’ co-operatives — be they bakers, grocers, coach builders, postal workers or tram drivers would seem to be a quite natural, indeed logical and rational way of enabling ordinary working people to co-ordinate the economic and industrial life of their city, for the benefit of themselves rather than for the state or a handful of capitalist barons and it is simply dishonest of Bookchin to claim that anarchism has emphasised the historical destiny of the industrial proletariat at the expense of community and free city life.

First, the physical act of vegetation clearance releases substantial quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, which increases overall carbon emissions and exacerbates anthropogenic climate change ( IPCC 2007 ). CONSERVATION STATUS AND PROSPECTS: The rugged nature of the terrain and poor access to most of the protected areas affords them a high degree of inherent protection, so threats tend to be localised and relatively low level.

This process means that where forests are destroyed to make way for palm oil plantations which supply oil for biofuels, more damage is done through deforestation than the benefit obtained from the use of biofuels. Another project, a joint effort of US-AID, Wildlife Conservation International and the Caribbean Conservation Corporation, is working to try to link existing and planned parks and reserves in a nearly continuous macrocorridor from southern Mexico to Columbia.
