How much will it cost to deal with the climate change due to deforestation in Indonesia?
from Making Peace

That means all kinds of forests are being cut down.

So deforestation means all kinds of forests vanishing.

Yes, deforestation is a term that refers to the general destruction of forests. So this sentence says two things and asks a question:

1) Forests are being destroyed in Indonesia.

2) This deforestation continues to climate change.

3) How much will it cost to deal with this climate change?
