2021 Represents The Worst Amazon Rainforest Deforestation In 15 Years
Amazon Deforestation In Brazil Jumps To A 15 Year High According to the National Institute for Space Research’s Prodes monitoring system. The current data shows that the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest lost 13,235 square kilometers of its precious rainforest over the past 12-months. This period is not just 2021, but encompasses from August of 2020 to July of 2021.
Furthermore, that’s the most loss of the natural earth’s great wonder since 2006.
As a result of a government that opposses regulations on farmers buring the forest. In addition, anything that seems to help the environmentalists is not welcome by the current Brazilian President. The President is known around Brazil for favoring the economy over the environment, even if it means poor short-term choices for Brazil.
In conclusion, the Amazon Rainforest is a vital resource of our planet and her loss would be catastrophic. Lastly, will an international coalition eventually form to bring together vast resources of capital. Furthermore, apply this capital towards purchasing large swaths of land. So as to safeguard the Amazon Rainforest for future generations.
Will anything change? Or will Brazil’s President cotinue to pursue a path that favors the economy over any consideration for the environment?
Brazil’s treasure is not just their own, it also belongs to the rest of the world.
