It's all over the news worldwide, the Brazilian Amazon's is on fire 🔥!! Forest fires are common in the Amazon during the dry season, which runs from July to October. They can be caused by naturally occurring events, such as by lightning strikes, but also by farmers and loggers clearing land for crops or grazing. The latest news in Brazil are saying that the activists believe in the anti-environment rhetoric of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has encouraged such tree-clearing activities. In his response, Mr Bolsonaro, which is a long time climate change sceptic, accused the non-governmental organisations of starting the fires themselves to damage his government's image. He later said the government lacked the resources to fight the flames. The problem is not who is guilty and responsible, the problem is that the fire is extending and have not been extinguished. The fires are emitting large amounts of smoke and carbon. #greenplanet#fire#climatechange#globalwarming#amazons#brazil#environment#environmentallyconscious#brazil🇧🇷 #rainforest#roraima#forestfires#deforestation#tree#theplanet #planetearth.
#repost @guardianofbeing • • • • • As of July 29, humanity has officially used up more ecological resources this year than the Earth can regenerate by the end of the year. . The Global Footprint Network, a sustainability organization which calculates the day, says humanity is currently consuming nature 1.75 times faster than the planet can regenerate. . That means we're overspending our natural capital, compromising resources in the future as a result and leading to things like deforestation and carbon dioxide buildup in the atmosphere. And more carbon dioxide brings ever increasing climate change. . It's getting worse, too. The date has moved up two months over the past 20 years, and July 29 marks the earliest the date has ever landed. . The United States is one of the worst culprits. If the entire world's population lived like Americans, we would need five Earths to meet our demands. That's compared to countries like France or the United Kingdom, which would need less than three, though that still isn't ideal. . We have only got one Earth, this is the ultimately defining context for human existence. We can't use 1.75 without destructive consequences. . Source @cnn .
