This is very sad: Deforestation Soars in the Amazon
I really hate being right about this sort of thing because the impacts are so stupendously bad.
The monthly rate of deforestation saw a big rise from 243 sq km (94 sq miles) in August to 948 sq km (366 sq miles) in December.
390%??? Puts a whole new definition on “eating our way down the food chain”. We’re effectively eating our forests too.
Hard to believe this is actually happening, but the proof is there.
