亞馬遜雨林大火連燒3周 靠社群分享才獲世界關注

亞馬遜熱帶雨林正在歷經史上規模最大的野火災難,已持續燃燒3個星期,森林面積減少1330平方英里,然而,相比巴黎聖母院大火,第一時間被世界大小爭相報導,亞馬遜大火被關注程度明顯少了很多,近幾日社群媒體才瘋傳雅馬遜大火肆虐的消息。

根據統計,亞馬遜今年有7萬起火災紀錄,創下2013年以來新高。據傳,最近一次大火已經燃燒3周,受到的關注卻明顯低於巴黎聖母願大火,直至近日才在社群媒體上引起討論。

巴西國家太空署在社群媒體上表示,今年森林砍伐活動比去年同期增加88%,加上今年亞馬遜雨林的氣候無異常,因此,人類才是頻繁火災的主因,可能源自於農夫火耕,或是伐木業者放火整地。該貼文在社群媒體上發酵,遭到瘋傳,才讓亞馬遜大火危機受到關注。巴西國家太空署也號召居民把被大火黑煙瀰漫的景象上傳至社群網站。

The AMAZON RAINFOREST has been burning for 3 weeks…..WTF! We are on the verge of losing it completely if the fire isn’t put out soon! The loss of trees, the loss of biodiversity is what is accelerating climate change…and yet nobody is saying a word! Nobody is doing anything for our largest rainforest in the world! Nobody is doing anything for some of the most beautiful people in the world, nobody is doing anything for the incredible animals there either! Mother Nature is angry with us…so we all need to wake up ASAP before we suffer some major consequences due to our irresponsible behavior and inaction so spreading awareness to everyone RIGHT NOW is crucial to saving the rainforest from destruction! News/media outlets are quick to cover political controversy and negative stories, but won’t talk about this urgent issue so we must all use our social media platforms and send them this post and when they get enough emails, DMs and messages about this story they will be FORCED to cover it and then the world will finally see what’s happening RIGHT NOW! Please share this post with any news media you follow and with ALL your followers and tell them to share it too…let’s all do what we can to get the word out ASAP and it’s also important to pray for Brazil too 🇧🇷 WE MUST SAVE THE RAINFOREST BY WORKING TOGETHER! Thank you for the head’s up @mikeholston #prayforbrazil #prayforamazonia #savetherainforest #karmagawa

對於,巴西總統波索納洛(Jair Bolsonaro)直指,大火是非營利環保組織引起,為了報復政府削減資金,才利用此舉讓國際譴責巴西政府。

今年1月上任的波索納洛是全球變遷的懷疑論者,政策偏向經濟發展,而非保護環境,也因為如此施政方向,今年亞馬遜雨林消失速度驟增。
