RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Experts say the wildfires in a region that spans Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay – especially the region between the Paraguay, Paraná, and Uruguay rivers – have become critical in 2020.
“There has been a dramatic increase in fires. In Argentina there has been an increase of around 170%, it's very serious,” said Elisabeth Mohle, an environmental politics researcher at Argentina's San Martín National University (UNSM).
She says it's part of a wider problem affecting multiple regions around the world in 2020, including Brazil's Amazonas state, Australia, California, and the Gran Chaco, South . . .
