The "Lungs Of The Earth" Are Being Burned Away As Unprecedented Wildfires Absolutely...

• https://www.zerohedge.com, by Michael Snyder

This week the skies above Brazil's largest city turned black in the middle of the afternoon due to the massive wildfires that are currently raging in that country.  But the wildfires aren't actually happening anywhere near Sa?o Paulo.  In fact, the smoke that turned the skies black actually came from fires that were happening more than 1,000 miles away.  Can you imagine how powerful the fires have to be in order to do that? 

And it isn't just Brazil – right now horrific fires are scorching vast stretches of our planet from South America all the way up to the Arctic.  Some of the fires are producing so much smoke that you can actually see it from space.  And in the process, irreversible damage is being done to our ecosystems.

I know that this number is hard to believe, but there have been more than 72,000 wildfires in Brazil so far in 2019, and most of those fires are happening in the Amazon rainforest.  I understand that many of you may not care what happens in Brazil, but you should.  Approximately 60 percent of the entire Amazon rainforest is in Brazilian territory, and that rainforest produces approximately 20 percent of all the oxygen in our atmosphere.  So essentially the "lungs of the Earth" are being burned away right in front of our eyes
