Models Show 50% Drop in Sierra Snowpack from Amazon Deforestation

Paper here.

Below is a zoomable map of world forest extent, as well as losses over time. here's a link to a high-res zoomable map showing global forest extent and loss. On the full map the Amazon doesn't look great either, but here I have it zoomed on Southern California. Keep in mind this is the current map, but all of SoCal's forests will have burned by 2040, at current rates.
