ABSTRACT
The article reports that deforestation of the Amazon rain forest looks to be on the rise, according to high-resolution images released by an agency of the Brazilian government. The pictures suggest an end to a widely hailed three-year decline in the rate of deforestation in the South American country. Deforestation accounts for approximately one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions and is responsible for significant species loss worldwide.
