Tell Brazil’s Bolsonaro - Stop the Amazon Rainforest Fires!

The Amazon Rainforest — one of Earth’s greatest safeguards against global warming — is burning. Fires are destroying irreplaceable biodiversity, threatening indigenous communities and lands, and eclipsing Brazilian cities in smoke.

Continued deforestation and burning could destroy the Amazon ecosystem, releasing unprecedented amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, permanently altering our planet’s rainfall patterns, and raising temperatures worldwide.

If we don’t act now, scientists fear that we’ll reach a point of no return when it will be too late to stop the destruction of the Amazon. Brazil’s President, Jair Bolsonaro, has the power to save the Amazon, but is putting business interests and climate denial ahead of the health of our planet. His pro-deforestation policies are reckless, misguided, and potentially deadly — and must be stopped.
