So, our “Lung” is on fire.
It is already threatened by huge deforestation, to the point it lost 20% of its width in less than 30 years.
It’s been burning for around two weeks and almost no word has been uttered about it. I, sincerely, have come to find out about it just now. I’m shooketh ™️ because we’re really burning away this planet.
The Amazon Rainforest holds 20% of global waters, it’s an area of incredible value in terms of biodiversity and, nevermind, it’s a crucial climate regulator. Spread awareness, demand help.
THIS IS NOT A NATURAL FIRE: farmers (presumably) set fire to the forest for political reasons — capitalism is demanding new cultivable fields;
Indigenous people are known to live in the rainforest (1 million people) ;
No, the forest won’t grow back like California Forest did/is doing.
