Wildfires in the Amazon Adding to Widespread Global Blazes

Wildfires are burning in the Brazil’s Amazon rainforest at their highest rate in years, according to new research. Started by loggers and farmers clearing the land, 39,194 fires have been detected in the rainforest so far this year, a 77 per cent increase from the same period in 2018, according to Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE). The blazes are so large and intense that their smoke has wafted thousands of miles to the Atlantic Coast, blackening São Paulo’s skies mid-day. The fires in Brazil are just one of dozens of regions across the globe currently battling wildfires. At least 54 large blazes are actively burning in 13 US states, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.
