Third world countries and rain forest areas are going to be (most often) "dirty" when compared with what we experience on a daily basis. I hope to cruise the Amazon some day. I know it will be hot and sticky. But it's a unique ecosystem in its own right, and I'd love to experience it.
That ecosystem won't be around long at the rate they are burning it.
