Blood Gold in the Brazilian Rain Forest

Need I say more?
Belém, a member of the Kayapo people, confers with Chicão, a miner whom his tribe allows to work on indigenous land. A new wave of prospectors, encouraged by Brazil’s President, threatens to upend a vital ecological balance in the rain forest.
Brazil’s National Institute of Space Research, which tracks the damage, calculates that one-fifth of Brazil’s Amazonian rain forest—the world’s largest remaining “green lung,” which absorbs billions of tons of carbon dioxide—has been destroyed since the nineteen-seventies.
