The Amazonas isn’t called the “lungs of the earth” for no reason. It creates more than 20% of the world’soxygen and is home to over 10% of the world’s plants and animals.
We are all hurting right now.
The last days we have been working like crazy to find out what we actually can do, and here’s the deal.
The government in Brazil, with Bolsonaro in the lead, is in heavy deny of climate change. Thinking more about creating current wealth than long term sustainable prosperity. Forests and wild life populations are not a priority.
Farmers are setting the forest on fire and government is looking the other way. They want to enlarge their territories mainly to be able to produce and export more beef.
The bigger picture.
The problem is larger than Brazil.
South America has a long history of Social and Ecological violence. The indigenous people who have lived hand in hand with nature for thousands of years now have to fight to protect it from overexploitation.
It is important to see the link between overconsumption, the western lifestyle and these problems. This is where we can do a lot of work.
