The law No. 9.605 / 98, provides for criminal and administrative sanctions derived from conduct harmful to the environment, and provides other measures. THE Law, itself, it brings numerous sanctions in the administrative, civil and criminal spheres, but I will not tire you out by talking about all the legal aspects, however, if the Law to be “respected”, by the great majority of the population, especially with regard to fauna and flora, it would be a great advance, since they are parts of nature closer to each one of us.
For example, the vegetation, which we find in our day-to-day lives, close to our home, on the way to school or work - that public garden, lawn and with innocent plants - on which we step - without even realizing that life exists there, birds trapped in cages, forests devastated by the chainsaw, animals mistreated in laboratories, pet shops, and even in the domestic environment. Now, let's be honest, it wouldn't be simpler if we respected the environment and treated it as we would like to be treated, that is, with respect. The legal system is essential to guide people's behavior, in view of the sanctions applied to offenders.
However, the laws are useless, if the principal is absent, the common sense, who should be above any feeling of possession of the human being, who pretends to want to dominate nature, enslave it to serve his ambition. Why, instead of cutting trees indiscriminately, thinking only of that fantastic house, building new condos, we don't use technology Light Steel Frame (material widely used in countries like New Zealand, Canada, Chile, United States) intelligent technology, which does not harm the environment, clean work, where all material is reused and water is already scarce in some parts of our planet, it is only necessary for personal hygiene of workers on the construction site.
Electric power plants should take advantage of the trash, instead of being thrown into the rivers, degrading them more and more. And we, well… .. each of us, can do our part, not throwing garbage on the street, in that stream near our home. And, here are some tips from grandma's time: don't throw away, the vegetable peels, eggs, using them as fertilizer, those leaves that you see with the cauliflower broccoli, can be cut very thin and become a tasty “cabbage a mineira”. The tips are very simple, but they work (I use them in my “cooking”) are a small contribution, the mother Nature, which has given me so much, because without it, I couldn't even exist.
