What Satellite Imagery Tells Us About the Amazon Rain Forest Fires is from The NY Times.
It is a terrible thing happening in the Amazonas Rain Forest, even more in this XXI century of technology and illimited resources for warfare and defence budgets not only in developed countries but also in the surrounding region.
We can´t expect from politicians and social leaders to solve a problem that affects us all. Each and every single person should be aware of the consequences of this disaster and take the necessary steps first of by supporting the community in need throughout recognised organisations in the area and second by supporting other entities or organisations that defend and support interests from the Amazonian Region.
Its only in our hands to take action and survey whats is happening in our planet and is our duty to awaken that environmental conscience in our sons and students as a legacy for their own survival.
