What is our government doing to help the preservation of the rainforests?

Read Al Gore's book "Earth in the Balance", and write to him if you still have questions. I just found a document that may help answer your question. The United States Congress House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce held hearings on May 13, 1992 on HR 2854 - "Tropical Wood Labeling Act." The document is for sale by the Superintendent of Documents, US Government Printing Office.
