Wash and Spin Cycle Threats to Tropical Biodiversity by Lian Pin Koh, Jaboury Ghazoul, Rhett A. Butler, William F. Laurance, Navjot S. Sodhi, Javier Mateo-Vega, and Corey J. A. Bradshaw
An article arguing that both sides of the environmental debate can put out gloss, misleading or unsubstantiated claims about tropical deforestation.

I wish it were that simple.
