Our Planet's Lungs are on Fire



The Amazon Rainforest has been on fire for 3 weeks now. This was caused by intentional burning of forests for cattle ranching. But the fire got out of control. It produces 20% of the global oxygen. If the planet is the body, the Amazon are the lungs. Now instead of oxygen being produced from there, the barren area is emitting carbon into the atmosphere. This is something that effects all of us. We decided to record this episode not to scare you but to bring awareness and start a conversation about it. Here are some verified charities who are aiding in this disaster
