Every time I try to google info about the massive Amazon Rainforest Fire, I get results for the Amazon Fire stick. And that’s ridiculous.

So I’m making a thread with information about how devastating this is and why we should ALL be concerned #AmazonRainforest (📷: @Reuters) 1. The National Institute for Space Research (Inpe) says it’s detected more than 72,000 fires between January & August - the most since records began in 2013. It’s observed more than 9,500 forest fires since Thursday. #AmazonRainforest @BBC
