Terrifying news from Brazil

The latest scientists’ data show a large increase in the number of wildfires in the Amazon in July compared to the same month last year. It raises concerns about a repeat of the massive fires that shook the world in August and September a year ago.

While the world is still concentrating on the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, Amazon is being destroyed by wildfires. It is said that this year’s July was much more tragic than the previous one. The scale of the fires raises concerns that it will be a repeat from last year.

Scientists

also found that burning down rainforests in the southwestern Amazon could also

increase the melting of tropical glaciers in the Andes Mountains of South

America. It has been found that soot can be carried by wind to the Andean

glaciers, which causes it to settle in the snow and, consequently, to

accelerate the melting of the glaciers.
