Drought in Brazil

Is it a new drought or a continuation of the drought since 2012?

With the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, an important source of moisture for Brazil is being lost.

The Amazon rainforest is also one of the tipping points for the global climate.

If too much rainforest is cut down there, it affects us all.

Once the tipping point is passed, an irreversible series of further climate-damaging processes begins.

This can lead to further tipping points.

Like dominoes, one tipping point after another could then be reached and global warming could no longer be stopped.

It is incomprehensible to me that countermeasures are still not being taken with all available options.
