The Amazon is Burning and No-one is Talking About It.
One of the most environmentally devastating disasters to ever happen has been going on for weeks and only now are we hearing about it.
The Amazon Rainforest, is the world’s most important ecosystem; it accounts for 20% of our oxygen, it’s the “lungs of the earth” and it’s on fire. It has been for a few weeks now, but it seems as if there has been close to no media coverage on the matter. On Drive, guest host Te Rina Taite and producer Bethany Tracey discussed the fires and possible reasons as to why it’s not a massive story in the media.
