Are squatters a problem in the amazon?

    Yes, squatters are considered to be a threat to the amazon. In Brazil, for example, President Lula made a contraversial decision to grant land rights to “squatters” occupying land in the amazon. Those campaining against the decision, argue that this will perpetuate deforestation in the area. Deforestation is responsible for nearly 1/5 of all greenhouse gas emissions world wide. Environmentalist argue that the bill will give a “carte blanche” to those looking to make money by destroying the amazon.
