Amazon Rain forest: Earth in danger! The world’s largest forest is being ravaged by fierce fire: There is a terrible fire in the Amazon forests, which is not taking the name of extinguishing. The Amazon forest of Brazil is called the ‘lung of the world’ because of its vast terrain.
The greenery here gives 20 percent oxygen to the whole world. Although the fire in Amazon is not new, but the intensity of the fire this time has been around for 15 days so that the sky of the surrounding areas has turned black. That’s why #PrayforAmazonas started trending on Twitter too. People are sharing pictures and videos of forest fire on Twitter.
According to the Brazilian space agency The National Institute for Special Research (INPE), Amazon has had the highest number of fire incidents this year. The agency said that between January and August, about 73 thousand fire incidents have been reported, which was 39,759 in the whole of 2018. Earlier in 2013, there were record incidents of fire.
Experts claim that the incidence of fire is increasing due to deforestation in Brazil. A few days ago some cities were covered by black deep smoke, which caused the problem of tremendous air pollution and everything became foggy. Environmental activists blame Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for the current situation. He says that Brazilian presidents appease people in timber smugglers and illegal mining, adding to the plight of the forests.
At the same time, President Bolsonaro says that the latest incident of fire is blaming the NGO. They say that Green groups have hatched this criminal conspiracy to malign my government. He expressed doubts that the Green Groups are doing this because their government has reduced their funding. He said, “We are facing a war.” He further said, ‘Fire has been set at important places. All indications suggest that he went to filming there and caught fire.
