Image Caption: The dark blue water of the Rio Negro River, cleansed by the thick, green carpet of the Brazilian rain forest, meets the soil-laden Amazon River close to Manaus, a city of over a million people. The Amazon becomes increasingly polluted, as hundreds of thousands of acres of rain forest are destroyed upstream each year.
