How does the deforestation of Amazonia affect global and regional climates? What are the roles of these
changes on Amazonian ecosystems? We have concluded that the relation between Regional Climate
Changes (RCC) and Global Climate Change (GCC) is directly associated with anthropogenic activities and
therefore sensitive to social, economical and political interventions. The RCCs are caused by actions within
the realm of the Brazilian sociopolitical scenario, and prone to changes through the implementation of
public policies regulating the sustained use of the renewable resources. The GCCs belong to an international arena, and are caused by the high emission rates of green house gases by the developed countries.
The effects of the RCCs could be abated if the developed countries would endeavor to reduce the present
emission levels as documented in IPCC meetings and collaborate in the implementation of a regulation to
curb the carbon emissions, in accordance to the Kyoto protocol.
