THE AMAZON FIRE DISASTER

THE AMAZON FIRE DISASTER

An eco system catastrophe is in the offering in the Amazon rainforest which houses 20 percent of the earth’s carbon dioxide.

However, the increase in human activities and aggressive cultivation of the forest for animal husbandry and poor farming methods have led to a multiplication of bush fires in the forest.

The danger to mankind is that the depletions of the carbon dioxide can lead to increase in global temperatures.

The sum of 20 million dollars aid given to Brazil by the G7 to fight the fire is a slap on our faces given the importance of the forest to mankind.
