Summary
Brazil: As the U.S. Congress considers new legislation that would have them pay for making pollution, American companies are looking to the Brazilian Amazonian rain forest for an increasingly valuable commodity - carbon. But for the locals this means losing access to the forest that they have used for food and other resources for centuries.
Guatemala: The economic impact of an immigration raid at a meatpacking plant in Postville, Iowa not only has hurt the local economy, but the deported workers and their families in Guatemala.
Uganda. Health officials in Uganda are looking to a new approach to preventing diseases like Ebola and Marburg virus, which can spread from gorillas and other animals to humans.
