Extensive documentation of man made forest fires to clear land for farming and cattle. In very large areas the deforestation has caused devastating desertification of the land. The Amazon rain forest is being deforested at an alarming pace primarily for cattle ranching. Deforestation not only destroys biodiversity and displaces forest peoples but is also responsible for 75% of Brazil’s greenhouse gas emissions, making Brazil the world’s fourth largest climate polluter.
