Boston Public Radio interviewed Sam Eaton about his ongoing project covering the Amazon rainforest's role in the global climate crisis. 

On a global scale, the rainforest is a carbon sink, and to the indigenous people of the region, it's a source of life—and it is being decimated by loggers and land grabbers every day.  Eaton sits down with BPR to discuss his reporting on the notorious 'arc of deforestation' in the Amazon, and indigenous efforts to combat it.
