Deforestation in the Amazon is causing parts of it to release more carbon than it absorbs (WEF)

  • In the 1980s and 90s, the Amazon rainforest absorbed 2 billion tonnes of carbon annually, but that figure is much lower today due to deforestation.
  • The southeast part of the Amazon, which has been heavily logged, appears to have lost its ability to absorb carbon.
