While the wildfires raging in the Amazon rainforest may up raise an “international crisis,” it’s hardly an accident.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo called for an “urgent international meeting” to address the fires and “to take all the measures, actions and sanctions necessary to stop this humanitarian disaster.”

Brazil’s space research center (INPE) said this week that the number of fires in Brazil is 80% higher than last year. More than half are in the Amazon region, spelling disaster for the local environment and ecology.

People believe the fires are 99% being caused by people themselves.

New satellite images show the difference between an image taken on July 28 that did not have smoke in the air to a photo captured August 22 that has smoke in the air.

Theories are still being made on the causes of these devastating fires that are causing an array of wildlife animals’ deaths, but one thing that is certain to me and so should to everyone is that it’s a world crisis. It should be handled worldwide.

Ministers from Paris and Britain both declare these continuing fires an “international crisis.”

This crisis spoke sadness when a picture shared on Facebook showed an animal scared for his life was running away from the fires.

This matter concerns the people of Brazil and the world as a whole.
