Washington Post op-ed: Will Jair Bolsonaro rip up environmental protections and endanger the Amazon?

"Worldwide, deforestation is responsible for 15 percent of annual planet-warming emissions. As the Amazon rain forest shrinks, fighting climate change is far harder. With wholesale deforestation, the job would be near-impossible."
