The AMAZON rainforest has now been burning for 16 DAYS Non stop?? The amazon is responsible for 20% of the world's OXYGEN
THIS IS AS SCARY AS IT GETS!!!

The Amazon rainforest is burning record numbers of fires this year, and now smoke from the expansive flames has been captured on both NASA and NOAA satellites from space. According to the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) satellite information showed associate degree eighty three p.c increase compared to an equivalent amount in 2018. The space agency reports its satellite data has detected more than 72,000 fires since January 2019.
