For the past three weeks, one of the biggest natural resources that our dying planet has left has been slowly being decimated by flame – and much of the media haven’t even reported on it. The Amazon Rainforest, located primarily in Brazil in South America, is one of the largest areas of biodiversity. Not only that, but the sheer amount of plant life there has led to it gaining the nickname “the lungs of the world.”
But, for the past twenty days, this stunning (and essential) part of the world has been under siege by a truly enormous and destructive forest fire. Horrifying photos show the extent of the disaster. And some suspect that this tragedy is far from accidental.
