I am taking a break today from my regular post because we all need to pay attention right now. Each one of us is tasked with being the caretakers of this blue dot we call home yet somehow- all our leaders have failed to act with URGENCY.
The Amazon Rainforest is described as the “Lungs of our Planet” because it provides the essential environmental world service of continuously recycling carbon dioxide into oxygen. More than 20% of the world oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rainforest.
The main rainforest basins in the Amazon, Congo and Southeast Asia lose millions of acres every year. In 2015 alone, Indonesia lost roughly 2.6 million hectares of forest – Humans remain a menace to forests and our own well being. No other species on the planet destroys it's habitat. #specialkindofstupid
G6 Leaders gave up just $20 million at the close of talks yesterday. Help me out people, if we can’t breathe what other possible issues are there to talk about. Every country on the planet right now should be putting the fire out. So, let’s all use our social media to speak up in one voice.
