Scorched Earth: Culture and Climate Under Siege

Speaker: Leila Salazar-López, Executive Director, Amazon Watch

Host: Greg Dalton, Founder, Climate One

Wildfires are breaking records as they burn through acres of Amazon rainforest, northern California countryside and even the Arctic tundra. This loss carries major implications for the global climate: The Amazon alone is responsible for removing 5 percent of the world’s 40 billion tons of CO2 emissions from the air each year. When forests burn, this carbon storage—along with biodiversity and the Amazon’s indigenous culture—is lost.

As land use, climate change and resource consumption drive higher rates of wildfires and deforestation each year, why should people care about the loss of trees they might never see? Join us with Leila Salazar-López, executive director at Amazon Watch, for a conversation on the importance of these faraway forests.
