Deforestation in Brazil's Amazon rises in March!

Deforestation in Brazil's Amazon rainforest rose 14% in March from the previous year, highlighting the continued challenges for the new leftist government. Space research agency Inpe's data showed 356 square km (137 square miles) were cleared in the Amazon just last month. The latest figures present a mixed picture on the government's anti-deforestation efforts, with the destruction for January to March falling to 845 square kilometers (326 square miles). U.S. climate envoy John Kerry said the world cannot meet its climate goal unless it protects the Amazon rainforest.

        We don't destroy what keeps us going! We SHOULD aim at conserving the environment NOT destroying the little that is left of it😔.
