AMAZON RAINFOREST COULD REACH ‘TIPPING POINT’ BY 2050, SCIENTISTS WARN
A study by Bernardo Flores of the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil found that 15% of the Amazon had already been cleared and another 17% had been degraded by human activity, such as logging, fires, and under-canopy extraction. A further 38% of the Amazon may be weakened as a result of the prolonged droughts over the past decade. As a result of these activities, the Amazon rainforest could hit a tipping point by 2050.

    This is quite alarming..Amazon being the biggest wet land in the world...it should be protected...and legal action taken on those who carry out barbaric actions such as cutting down of trees knowing the kind of impact they bring upon the earth.

        As it is, deforestation continues to plague the Amazon rainforest despite the efforts of governments mandated to protect it. Recently, Brazil's Lula has intensified efforts to stop mining and logging in the forest, but there is only so much he can do. Who exactly bankrolls these malicious efforts?
