Is a 45% drop in the rate of Amazon deforestation related to the death of the newspaper industry?

The rate of deforestation in the Amazon has dropped by 45% and is the lowest on record since monitoring began 21 years ago, Brazil’s government says.

This is GREAT news.

Are we seeing the green effects of the death of the newspaper industry?

There have been recessions before – but not a 45% drop in rate of deforestation. The difference now is – newspapers are dying

I wonder if anyone is investigating the green effects of the death of the newspaper industry? i.e. it would be interesting to see if a 45% drop in the rate of Amazon deforestation is related to the death of the newspaper industry ..

But this is great news for the rest of us .. and for the Planet ..
