Summary
The Amazon catches fire every year, but 2019 is different. Eduardo Brondizio, an expert on rural and urban populations and landscapes in the Amazon, knows why. In this bonus episode, he explains the political trajectory that brought a group of land-grabbers and farmers to coordinate a day of coordinated fires — the same trajectory that's now bringing indigenous groups, researchers and people across the globe to push back.
