But 2003-2010 was actually worse than now?

Higher rates of deforestation then yes, but now as the original forest cover shrinks every unit of deforestation is much more serious as it shrinks the carbon sink and we are much closer to the tipping point of where the first might not produce enough water vapour to sustain itself as a first and turn into a Savannah.

Thanks for setting up this thread. ASI and ASIF urgently needs leaders like Greta Thunberg who have inspired some many children as well as adults. Amazing that her voyage is already being covered by media like the BBC and TheGuardian.
