Amazon rainforest burning at record rate

  • Published: 22 August 2019
  • Fires are raging at a record rate in Brazil's Amazon rainforest, and scientists warn that it could strike a devastating blow to the fight against climate change.
    The fires are burning at the highest rate since the country's space research center, the National Institute for Space Research (known by the abbreviation INPE), began tracking them in 2013, the center said.
    There have been 72,843 fires in Brazil this year, with more than half in the Amazon region, INPE said. That's more than an 80% increase compared with the same period last year.
    The Amazon is often referred to as the planet's lungs, producing 20% of the oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere.
    It is considered vital in slowing global warming, and it is home to uncountable species of fauna and flora. Roughly half the size of the United States, it is the largest rainforest on the planet.

            Some people are disgusting rats. Money hungry monsters, we call ourselves intelligent but do you see any other species destroying the planet. We are a disgrace and people need to wake the fuck up and take action against these big companies.

              The Amazon is actually being burnt down to make homes for people.
              But what they don't know, is that nature is losing It's home.
              What I'm trying to say is, We are making homes for people, but cutting down homes for animals and nature.
              Now, most of you don't know, trees can actually communicate.
              Yes, it's true. They protect each other, No they don't walk.
              And, we need to plant more oxygen..Trees give us oxygen. We could all die
              if we didn't have trees. So please stop this pollution. I'm begging you to do
              something about it. Like if you agree.
              And no, I'm not fishing for likes. I am being honest.

                    Bolsonaro keeps destroying Amazon. Now he has allowed oil production in Amazon. This month, the smoke from the fires has reached the south of Brazil. You can watch our report here: /watch?v=T9NAYkYLcqE

                                    Are these people fucking dumb? Do they want us to die? Out of all of the places why the Amazon? The Amazon is such a great environment for animals to reproduce and to live. And you just have to ruined it. I hope karma gets back at you hard assholes.🤗

                                      These people who burned it is honestly so dumb. Don’t they realized that thousands of animal habitats are in there? They’re literally just doing this for more land. How idiotic. The Amazon gives off 20% of our oxygen. They should be sued. It’ll you guys fault if thousands of animal will start to become extinct. Shame on you.

                                                I have a theory that the goverment wanted to burn the forest without us knowing and build buildings and they dont want to tell us and make them look innocent so they set it on fire without us knowing and after the fire is cooled down they will start to build building and make excuses like "since the fire burned all the trees in the amazon rainforest we will start to build buildings" just a theory

While some of the actual forrest that is burning, its normal! This does not affect all of us! Even if a little bit of the Forrest burns down, good! It makes better soil and you know what will happen? More plants will grow. Please stop worrying about the Amazon it is dry season.
