image for J.K. Rowling's 'Deathly Hallows' breaks all records, selling 8 million copies while last tree in Amazon forest is cut down; flooding in Central England ensues
"A rainforest, a rainforest for my kingdom!" With all of England's gone, only ours is left to save the world?

Buenos Aires, Brazil - Late last Saturday night, Harry Potter fans turned mob rule, rushed into the Amazon rainforest cutting down every tree in sight, after bookstore owner, Juan Miguel-Sanchez, said he ran out of copies of the book, 'The Deathly Hallows' to sell. Blaming it on recent economic sanctions, environmental restriction imposed on the country's printers due to global warming, resulted in the panic, causing the loss of world's last greatest rainforest, ironically, contributing to the flooding in Central England.

"We didn't mean to do it," said Pablo Naruda Jr. "We wanted to find out the ending of the Harry Potter series, just like everybody else in the developed world."

Brazil, like other underdeveloped countries across the globe, has been placed under increasing pressure by developed nations to curve their consumption of the world's natural resources in a biased and hypocritical attempt to get them to cut back on global warming.

All at the expense of their recently acquired tastes for refined products, their newly acquired appetite for a Western flair. Ironically, coming from the very same developed nations demanding their unreasonable imposition, many of whom do not reciprocate.

"It does not look good," said Professor Reynaldo Andersen, Chair of the Department of History at Cal Tech, Pasadena, California.

"The last time we saw a situation like this was during the American Revolution," continued Prof. Andersen. "Then, England, and other European counties, attempted to create an ongoing trade imbalances between its Colonies and themselves. Only this time, mother nature is the teller at the bank that holds all of our accounts in the balance, and we are all in the red."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
