A record number of wildfires ravaging the Amazon, the world's largest tropical rainforest, is influencing the political discourse as world leaders congregate in France for the Group of Seven summit and protestors call for action....Kim Cobb, a professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, said the deforestation is "rightfully raising this conversation around the world. This speaks to climate change being an issue at the highest level of international discourse, with the EU really leading the charge these days," she told Business Insider in a phone interview.
