Against the world, Brazil may increase carbon emissions in 20%

The fall in global economic activity will make the world reach the goal of reducing gas emissions stipulated by the Paris Agreement. The estimate is that the volume of carbon discharged into the atmosphere will drop 6% globally. Brazil may go against this trend. An analysis made by the Climate Observatory points to an increase of up to 20% in Brazilian emissions, in 2020. The reason is the growth of deforestation in the country.
