Amazon Rain Forest Fires

Rating: 5.0

In the hullabaloo of international affairs
Nobody seems to be bothered about
The Amazon rain forest fires
Raging menacingly for over two weeks now
Can we afford to lose 20% supply of Oxygen
In the precarious conditions that we live in?
It seems that the world is interested
More in moons and exoplanets than this planet.

One tends to agree with the last line. And when the forests are raging, the country head is fighting with another of France instead of fighting with the fires. Incidentally, I too have penned one on this: Amazon: Lungs of Earth on fire

In this global village, we can't remain untouched by the heat of such topics. The world has offered to fight this fire or pledged funds for the re-forestation of fire infested land but the leaders of affected countries (Brazil etc) have shown no interest. Thanks, Aniruddha ji, for your feedback.

The worst part is that it will add to the already precarious levels of pollution and to depletion of natures own way of augmenting the supply of oxygen on our planet. Thanks, Mr Roy.

Thanks for a very thoughtful review and an extremely sensible feedback. The situation rightly calls for a change in the attitude of the world, its leaders and the public at large in tackling this enormous challenge.
