"Amazon forest fires increase at a record pace" Brazilian Institute August 22 6:57
The Brazilian National Institute for Space Research has announced the findings that forest fires are increasing at a record pace as illegal logging expands in the Amazon in the rainforest.
Brazil is home to over two-thirds of the world's largest rainforest, the Amazon, but the National Institute for Space Research in Brazil reported that there were 70,000 forest fires from January 20th to January 20th. Announced 2000, an increase of 83%, a record pace compared to the same period last year.
Some airlines have had their view blocked by smoke from forest fires, affecting the operation of some flights.
As for the cause, experts in Brazil may artificially cause forest fires to illegally expand livestock pastures, and President Borsonaro, who took office in January, shows a positive attitude toward the development of Amazon. It is pointed out that this is promoting such a movement.
The National Space Research Institute announced in mid-month that the Amazon forest destroyed last month has expanded 3.8 times the same period last year. Criticism was growing that protection should be put in.
On the other hand, President Borsonaro changed the director of the National Institute for Space Research earlier this month as `` publishing lies data '' and is also repelling the European countries seeking the conservation of Amazon. Reki is getting stronger.
