Brazilian Amazon deforestation up to 150% in Bolsonaro''s Last Month!

Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rose 150 percent in December from the previous year, according to government figures released Friday, a final bleak report for far-right ex-president Jair Bolsonaro in his last month in office. Satellite monitoring detected 218.4 square kilometers (84.3 square miles) of forest cover destroyed in Brazil's share of the world's biggest rainforest last month, according to the national space agency's DETER surveillance program. The area—nearly four times the size of Manhattan—was up more than 150 percent from the 87.2 square kilometers destroyed in December 2021, according to the agency, INPE.

    I hope this makes Jair realize that there's so much he'd have done is his power to tame deforestation while he was the president.

      I can imaging the loss if he had stayed in the office.

            Shocking, so much destruction done to the Amazon during his tenure. Glad we now have a climate conscious leader in charge.

              so sad as it contributes to climate change by releasing carbon stored in the forest into the atmosphere.

                      Significant increases in deforestation not only have devastating ecological consequences but also severely impact global efforts to combat climate change, it is important to have strong policies and enforcement mechanisms in place to protect the Amazon rainforest and its biodiversity.
