Brazilian climate scientist Antonio Donato Nobre explains that there is a river in the sky, a recent discovery that was revealed by the modern technologies of satellite sensing and computer modelling. The result tells an an amazing story of how trees influence both the water cycle of the Amazon Basin and the global climate.

It is a must-view, loaded with fact, feeling and, most importantly, heart. It is an example of how science and spirit working together can change awareness. The heart can feel only what the eyes can see and Nobre's presentation makes that vital connection.
