Bolsonaro increased the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest by drawing a line.
Under former Brazilian President Jair BolsonaroBrazil deforested large swathes of the Amazon rainforest to make way for agriculture, which accelerated deforestation.
In 2019 alone, the first year of the Bolsonaro administration, 2.4 million acres — a section of the forest about the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined — was cleared, according to Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research.
Clear-cutting too much of the forest could cause significant climate and water changes that could lead to massive tree death. This could eventually lead to irreversible forest destruction that eventually leads to savanna. This could lead to the release of toxic substances. up to 140 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, where the gas would trap heat and accelerate global warming, with catastrophic impacts worldwide.
As the Bolsonaro government winds down, the new President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva promises to reverse the environmental damage done in the Amazon.
