Here are some bad news I read last week : deforestation in Brazil is increasing again. For the past years, it had been decreasing steadily, reaching its lowest levels in two decades.
But over the last year, deforestation increased by 28 percent over the previous one. As the BBC noted : ” The government is working to reverse this “crime”, Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira said.”
This takes place as on a global scale, the world has lost a staggering 900,000 square miles (2.3 million square kilometers) of forests between 2000 and 2102 to deforestation or fire.
