The mightiest amazon rainforest in the world is shrinking at an alarming rate. If it disappears altogether, the effects on our planet will be devastating.

The ‘Lungs of Earth’ i.e the Amazonian Rainforest has been burning for over three weeks now. The fire was spotted from the space but we on Earth are still turning a blind eye towards it.

But how does it matter? We’re sitting oceans away from the forest fire, it doesn’t affect us right? 
That’s where we’re wrong and these shocking facts about how the Amazon rainforest is our foe will open your eyes. The dry season creates the favorable conditions for the use and spread of fire, but starting a fire is the work of humans, either deliberately or by accident.”

Bigger And longer fires

The fires have covered Sao Paulo in dark smoke, and they are raising concerns that the Amazon rainforest, which is one of the most biologically diverse regions on Earth, may be suffering from land-clearing operations and other activities intended to transform the land for agricultural use.

An expansion in flames and following deforestation in the Amazon make it significantly increasingly troublesome, if certainly feasible, for countries to hold global warming to “well below” 3.6 degrees (2 degrees Celsius) compared with preindustrial levels, as called for in the Paris climate agreement.

The Amazon, which spans 2.12 million square miles, sucks up about a quarter of the 2.4 billion metric tons of carbon that global forests absorb each year.

Poorer people

The Amazon is home, not only for plants and animals species but also people as well, many of whom rely on the rainforest for their livelihood. “[All of t]he world’s rainforests…provide food, energy security, incomes, and medicinal plants for 300 million people,” points out The Guardian. “And as the forests come down, the people who live in or around them and depend on them become impoverished.
