Re.Think Talks/While all eyes are on COVID-19, the Amazon forest is burning

The coronavirus has been described as the biggest challenge the world has faced since the Second World War. Yet while all eyes are on this devastating pandemic, the Amazon forest is burning to the point of becoming a planetary emergency. In this episode Fredrik Moberg looks at deforestation and the looming risk of large-scale destruction in the Amazon and elsewhere – something we know is also linked to the spread of infectious disease from animals to humans. Together with Ana Paula Aguiar from the Brazilian Institute for Space Research and David Armstrong McKay from Stockholm Resilience Centre we will find answers to questions like: How worried should we be? And what can we do about it?
