This is a great summary. Thank you for sharing!

Just an additional comment on the Amazon deforestation chart - the main drivers are the clearing for pasture for beef production (63%) as well as agriculture of animal feeds (about 9%, e.g. soy for mostly feeding poultry and pigs) that are then exported into Europe. Given the economic incentives driven by growing demand, the policy side and the consumer side (i.e. reduction of meat consumption) are probably both important in solving this issue.
