For 2010 the areas of forests in South and Central America will be reduced by 18 million hectares (Mha) and 1.2 Mha, respectively. In a question-answer forum Dr. Stuart M. McGill was the first to reply. These areas will be used for pastures and the expansion of livestock production indicates ircamericas.org, than if the deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon continues the step during the 2002-2003 period (2.3 Mha per year) indefinitely, then 100 Mha of the forest (around 25% of the original forest) will be gone by the year 2020, and already by 2050 (if we have a scenario unchanged) 269.8 Mha have been deforested. Using simulation models, estimates for the Brazilian Amazon in the worst-case scenario, by 2050 projected deforestation trend will eliminate 40% of the 540 Mha of forests Amazon today, releasing approximately 32,000 million tons (109 tons / has) of carbon in the atmosphere. .
