  • % of Co2 emissions 2% to 50 %
  • based on a report by the World Bank entitled, Assessment of the Risk of Amazon Dieback. At this point deforestation combined with spreading fires and overall warming of 2 degrees Celsius would cause parts of the Amazon's hydrogeologic system to break down.
  • However, other studies have found that 'die-off' point for the Amazon rainforest would occur only after 40-60 percent of the forest was lost. The differences in such findings displays the complicated nature of climate science, however the studies all agree that the Amazon faces unparalleled pressures that if unchecked will result in massive forest loss

    1. 1. CO2 O2 2 to 50 % of carbon emissions
    2. 2. O2CO 2 =
    3. 3. O 2CO2
    4. 4. 18-20 percent of all emissions in the world come from deforestation and forest degradation
    5. 5. "tipping point for the Amazon is 20 percent deforestation".
    6. 6. The threshold of 20 percent is close: already 17 to 18 percent of the Amazon has been lost..
    7. 7. Trees for O2
    8. 8. 18-20 percent of all emissions in the world come from deforestation and forest degradation
    9. 9. "tipping point for the Amazon is 20 percent deforestation".
    10. 10. The threshold of 20 percent is close: already 17 to 18 percent of the Amazon has been lost..
    11. 11. Trees for O2
