Deforestation in Haiti: A horse loaded with charcoal going to market

Here is one of the main causes of deforestation in Haiti: Look at this picture of a horse loaded with charcoal from the countryside going to market.

By the end of the day, these 3 bags of charcoal will make it to a Haitian kitchen. by the end of the week it's gone... Burned to ashes.

Charcoal is Haiti's chief source of fuel and the #1 cause for deforestation and environmental disasters.

As long as Haitians continue to use charcoal for cooking deforestation will continue.

Haitians protesters decide to burn down a gas station during a street protest

Look at this photo... Haitians protesters decide to burn down a gas station during the 17 October 2017 street protests against the budget and Haitian president Jovenel Moise.

The funny thing is, the owner of this gas station probably has nothing to do with the budget or who is president Haiti.

But Haiti is open for business!

And of course, the people need jobs!
