Brazil’s Great Amazon Rainforest Burns

Note: Wildfires in the Amazon cause a climate feedback that is not accounted for in the computer models used for the IPCC’s predictions of climate change. The feedback from wildfires is only one of  several missing feedbacks. Most of these reinforce climate change.

This means climate change in the real world will actually be worse than IPCC predictions.

Strangely, more feedbacks makes methane emissions from cows even worse. Do any policy makers that know this? Hilary Benn might. See Chatham House: Reduce meat and dairy to save climate
