Global Futures Bulletin: The Amazon Climate Bomb – Igarapé Institute

This 19 page report (pdf, English) is a recent summary of the crisis in the Amazon basin, regarding deforestation and other crimes that are contributing to destabilizing the forest’s function in retaining carbon and generating water and oxygen. Well illustrated and written in a straightforward and uncompromising style, the authors link together climate change, forest die-back, biodiversity loss, deforestation, human encroachment, organised crime and the national and international supply chain of investors, traders and retailers, as well as the role of political leadership. Solutions are proposed in the final section.
