How one man is killing the Amazon
As man-made fires scorch the biggest rainforest, Brazil’s Bolsonaro continues to defy climate change concerns
Sao Paulo: In the dense forests of north Brazil, the tree cover is thick like a green carpet sprawled over an endless earth, rivulets snake through the creeks and drop into huge rivers, birds sing during the day and winds whistle at night, and wisdom is passed from one generation to other through ancient sayings. One of such indigenous maxims is about how to protect the forest from any harm. “One should never say bad things or do evil deeds or make offences so that the forest does not catch fire," goes the saying, which is shared among the tribes living in the Amazon rainforest for thousands of years. They have known forever that their words and action can fuel a fire in the forests.
