Emissions from deforestation. Out of the woods

FORESTS are chock-full of carbon. Some three-quarters of the stuff on the Earth's surface lies trapped in leaves, branches, stems and roots. Two to three times more is buried in the soil but it is hard to dislodge. Vegetal carbon, by contrast, is released into the atmosphere whenever woods are engulfed by fire, pests or tree-uprooting winds. Or humans: some experts reckon that deforestation accounts for as much as 17% of global manmade emissions. Others, though, put the figure at as little as 6%.

En este artículo se describen los antecedentes y los altos costos ambientales de más de 20 proyectos de “desarrollo” impulsados por el gobierno de Evo Morales.

Contrasting Colonist and Indigenous Impacts on Amazonian Forests

Abstract: To examine differences in land use and environmental impacts between colonist and indigenous
populations in the northern Ecuadorian Amazon, we combined data from household surveys and remotely
sensed imagery that was collected from 778 colonist households in 64 colonization sectors, and 499 households

were significantly greater for colonists than indigenous peoples. On average, colonist households had approximately
