Foreign leaders are joining the public at large in demanding action as Brazil’s fires continue.
The fires in Brazil have been raging for three weeks.
Reports say the Amazon rainforest is burning at a record rate– the highest on record since 2013 and an 83% increase from last year.
Earlier this month, Brazil declared a state of emergency over the rising number of fires in the region. So far this year, almost 73,000 fires in the country have been detected by Brazil’s space research center, INPE.
Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, has said publicly that he thinks the fires were set by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in retaliation to funding cuts. Bolsonaro didn’t provide any evidence for his claims and then later said he never accused any groups.
