we own amazonia and we know how to take care of it.
Seems that someone is a bit being toxic in here, kindly try not to get out of the topic subject, thanks in advance !


I agree with RedFire, some organisations should speak more about this incident and they should start doing it now to make people aware of what's happening and start taking actions.

EDIT: Some celebrities like DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Madonna, cristiano ronaldo,justin bieber and Kris Jenner have donated and some have rent planes to transport water with planes to there. A good action to be honest.

The Amazon rainforest, the lungs of our planet that produces 20% of our oxygen, is burning. It is an international crisis

This is already incorrect, so why should I get my information from an misinformed person?

However, the figure—which has earned the forest the title “lungs of the Earth”—is a gross overestimate. As several scientists have pointed out in recent days, the Amazon’s net contribution to the oxygen we breathe likely hovers around zero.

Physically Impossible. To Coe, the claim “just doesn’t make any physical sense” because there simply isn’t enough carbon dioxide in the atmosphere for trees to photosynthesize into an entire fifth of the planet’s oxygen.

Think about it: For every batch of carbon dioxide molecules trees pull out of the air, they push a comparable number of oxygen molecules back out. Given that the atmosphere contains less than half a percent of carbon dioxide, but 21 percent oxygen, it’s not possible for the Amazon to generate that much oxygen.

Several scientists have come up with more accurate estimates. Yadvinder Malhi, an ecosystem ecologist at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute, bases his calculations on a 2010 study that estimates tropical forests are responsible for around 34 percent of photosynthesis occurring on land. Based on its size, the Amazon would account for about half of that. That would mean the Amazon generates around 16 percent of oxygen produced on land, explains Malhi, who detailed his calculations in a recent blog post.

That percentage sinks to 9 percent when taking into account the oxygen produced by phytoplankton in the ocean. (Climate scientist Jonathan Foley, who directs the non-profit Project Drawdown which researches climate change solutions, arrived at a more conservative estimate of 6 percent).

But that’s not the whole story. Trees don’t just exhale oxygen—they also consume it in a process known as cellular respiration, where they convert the sugars they amass during the day into energy, using oxygen to power the process. So during the night when there’s no sun around for photosynthesis, they’re net absorbers of oxygen. Malhi’s research team reckons that trees inhale a little over half the oxygen they produce this way. The rest is probably used up by the countless microbes that live in the Amazon, which inhale oxygen to break down dead organic matter of the forest.


“The net [oxygen] effect of the Amazon, or really any other biome, is around zero,” he explains.

And there have been way more fires before, this isn't the worst they've seen.

People activity toward rain forests are main reasons for burning them. As read from the journal articles cattle and farm industries are causes of removing trees by South American merchants which is considered a reason for lowering humidity. Fires made by humans activity are much higher than natural fires. So, South Americans citizens are responsible for their Amazon forest.

Go ask yourself that.



Why are you, Nervous, not doing anything? Why are you just saying "why are others not doing anything" when you are doing nothing yourself either? (Except rambling on social media) That will answer your question.
Bringing awareness to an issue is far greater than doing nothing. Similar to the Sudan crisis, the large attention from the media has drastically helped the country's chaotic state. The more attention a subject gets, the likelihood of the government taking actions would be significantly higher.

On a side note, how is this a debate?

It is very bad. Trees is our oxygen supply but some humans did not understand trees importance. I think , someones burning forest for tourism. I am living Turkey/Bodrum. Every summer, someone's burning forest for tourism. I am sorry but I can't do anything. Country's Ministers aren't do anything.

Trees produce oxygen, without the Amazon rainforest we won't be able to live well I mean as Nervous said It produces 20% oxygen and the all the flame going from it, produces a lot of air pollution which makes it even worse. I'm not sure if the fire is natural or manmade but It should be stopped as soon as possible.

That's a big lie. Who told you that? Quote me sources.

well I mean as Nervous said It produces 20% oxygen
Also a big lie, it's completely fabricated by leftists.

I didn't copy that from any source, Nervous just mentioned the %20 oxygen thing and I even saw it in an article, I was like wow %20.... I thought if that %20 oxygen decreases then life will be harder etc

Unfortunately, that sad and it might effect on too many things which said above, we can’t really do any thing. Let government do their job

It is crazy how the whole world went mad when Notre Dame was burning, people stepping in to donate, but when something truly important as the rainforest is burning, no one bats an eye in time.
Because the Amazon has wildfires every fucking seasons and some of its trees need to burn down in order to propagate.

While there is no doubt the rainforest fires will harm the production of oxygen in the future, I doubt it will affect the planet that much in the long term (exept the heavy CO2 release -> Greenhouse effect).
They are just trees.
But the Amazon doesn't only contain trees. It also contains an own ecosystem with a very big spectrum of various types of plants, animals and insects. While most of them just die in the fire, the ones that survival develop fire resistance for their following generations. Even an asteroid that killed the dinosaurs left animals, alive, that adapted.
Life ALWAYS adapts, doesn't matter how bad it gets.
Humans on the other hand won't.
But idc as I will be long dead when shit gets bad for us humans.  :)
Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth.
