So the rainforest is on fire and it's all over social media. It generally seems to be regarded as some kind of tragedy, but from what I've heard it was actually set alight on purpose in order to make room for agriculture. Assuming that is true, is it a good idea to remove portions (or even all) of the rainforest in order to use the land for other purposes?
Just saw this article today that would claim its primarily cattle farmers to cause for the fires. https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/08/23/americas/brazil-beef-amazon-rainforest-fire-intl>>1358
I don't think it's a great idea to be replacing trees with cattle when we have this whole global warming thing going on.
