wildfires burning down Amazon forest

We have never seen anything like this before! Right now, Thousands  of wildfires are burning down the Amazon, with black smoke plunging entire cities into darkness…

Ahead of the Group of Seven summit in France, French President Emmanuel Macron called the situation in Brazil an “international crisis” and vowed to make it a priority point of discussion.

As wildfires continue to engulf the Amazon rainforest at a record pace, Bolsonaro, who has called for the development of the Amazon region in his country, has come under immense scrutiny, with advocates saying fires have increased in areas of the world’s largest rainforest where deforestation has also risen.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is telling other nations not to meddle in its growing crisis in the Amazon rainforest as wildfires continue to spread across the region, shortly after he said Brazil didn’t “have the resources” on its own to extinguish the blaze.

“These countries that send money here, they don’t send it out of charity,”

the right-wing president said in a live broadcast on Thursday, Reuters reports.

“They send it with the aim of interfering with our sovereignty,”

he added.

 

The lungs of our planet are choking, but now Brazil’s far-right President Bolsonaro has come under massive pressure to act– let’s use this moment to make sure he protects to forest, before it’s too late! Sign here and share with everyone you know.
