The Daily PlanetWatch for Wednesday, July 3

The latest environmental news headlines every afternoon from the Daily PlanetWatch

  • Amazon deforestation, it's what's for dinner. The Smithsonian reports a "dramatic increase" in the rate of deforestation for the first half of 2019. As reported by the Guardian, the reason for clearing rainforest at a soccer-field-a-minute clip is largely due to the demand for beef. 
  • Writing in TownHall, Paul Driessen invokes the U.S. Declaration of Independence in support of his argument that America is ruled by "eco-tyranny". We couldn't disagree more. 
  • Scotland has a rainforest? It does, and just like other rainforests, it is a threatened ecosystem.
