Amazon forest is burning!

Fire on Amazon forest

The National Institute for Space Research (INP), a Brazilian space research agency, said a record number of fires took place on Amazon in the first eight months of this year. The fire was reported to be about 5 percent higher than the same period last year.
After researching satellite images, Impe found that there were 12,900 fires in the Amazon forest from January to August.

The latest figures from Imp say that Amazon lost 7,000 km of forest in 20 years, which is 5 percent higher than the 20.

While fire incidents are regular and natural during this dry time of the year, environmentalists are blaming the increasing tendency for farmers to fire fires to clear forests for livestock grazing.

The right-wing president of Brazil, who came to power in January, has already said several times that in the business interest, Brazil should open Amazon. So that mining, agriculture and timber traders can exploit its resources.

On Wednesday, Zia Bolsonaro claimed that non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have been funding the fire, blaming Amazon for hurting the government's image. However, he could not provide any evidence for this.

Describing the Amazon fire as an "international crisis," French President Emmanuel Makhon commented that the G-4 conference should be discussed. In a tweet he wrote "Our house is burning."

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed 'deep concern' over record fires in the world's largest evergreen forests.

He says, "In the global climate crisis, we cannot accept such damage as one of the major sources of oxygen and biodiversity. Amazon must be protected. "

The latest figures from Impe say that in 20 of the total 5 km of forest was lost, which is 5 percent more than 20. The figures, which were found in the latest figures in 20, suggest that this rate of desertification has increased threefold. Last month alone, 225 km of forest was burned, which is 20 per cent higher than in July last year.

The US space agency NASA and Amazon have released several satellite images of the fires.

But above all these arguments, the most important thing now is to protect the forest. As Amazon is burning, environmentalists fear that the climate of the world may change soon enough.

Geographically the largest forest in the world is the Amazon jungle. It provides 20 percent of the world's oxygen. So deep in the Amazon River basin in South America, this deep rain forest is also called the lung of the earth. But for the past few days, the lungs have been burned in ashes. Over the past eight months, more than 12,000 times the fire has taken place in different parts of the forest. Amazon's vast territory is being destroyed. It can also have a profound impact on climate change all over the world.
