Fire in the Amazon Rainforest

Fire in the Amazon Rainforest

The above image is of a fire in the Amazon Rainforest. Unlike fires in the Western United States that are hot enough to consume nearly everything in their path thereby decreasing fire hazard, fires in the Amazon Rainforest are much cooler and kill smaller thin bark trees but do not comsume them, this increases the fire hazard by creating dead wood and holes in the rainforest canopy when the dead trees fall.

    That image is horrible :( It makes me really sad to see such a picture. Species are becoming extinct daily due to disasters such as this. It needs to stop... before it's too late.
