Amazon Rainforest Forest Fire 2019 – Record Breaking Wildfires In The Amazon Basin Since Record Began In 2013





According to the INPE, the surge marks an 83% increase over the same period of 2018 and is the highest wildfires in the amazon basin since records began in 2013. Fires are raging at a record rate in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest with 72,843 fires detected so far by Brazil’s space research centre, the National Institute for Space Research (INPE).  Brazil’s Amazon rainforest has seen a record number of fires this year. The National Institute for Space Research (INPE) said its satellite data showed an 84 percent increase on the same period in 2018. More than 9,500 fires have been detected in the last week, adding up to a total of 73,000 from January to August 2019.


Many are now worried about the consequences if the Amazon were to burn down.The Amazon basin is the largest rainforest in the world, and a vital carbon store that slows down global warming.In total, it contains 40 percent of the world’s tropical forests .The most affected area, the Amazon Basin, is home to the world’s largest tropical forest and uncountable species of fauna and flora. The Amazon is often referred to as the planet’s lungs, producing 20% of the oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere.

Images and videos circulating on social media show giant plumes of smoke spreading into the city of sao Paulo. Wildfires are common in the dry season, but are also deliberately set by farmers illegally deforesting land for cattle ranching. Environment activities have blamed president Jair Bolsonaro for relaxing environment controls in the country and encouraging deforestation. INPE has stated that the large number of wildfires could not be attributed to the dry season or natural phenomena alone. Scientist have warned that the fires could strike a devastating blow to the fight against climate change.




The most threatening question for us “ What If The Amazon Rainforest Burned Down ?”

What will happen ……??

Lets Discuss some important Points

The Amazon Rainforest is known to be a home to millions of different species, from plants, to animals, to even some indigenous tribes.


  •         Due to huge fire it is supposed to come carbon from the forest rather than the oxygen so it will directly cause climate change which is the trending global problem.  
  •     The Amazon Rainforest is also know to bring rain in the surrounding region. According to the report of scientificamerican.com 2012 deforestation in the amazon rain forest sharply reduce rainfall in non-forest part of brazil which directly affect agriculture and drinking water.
  •    Indigenous people such as the Yanomamo and other groups of mixed ancestry (e.g. the mestizos of Peru or the caboclos of Brazil) have perfected the use of chemical compounds found in plants and animals4. Knowledge of using these plants is usually held by a medicine man (shaman), who passes on this tradition to an apprentice, a process which has been ongoing for centuries and that forms an integral part of people’s identity.
  • ·         The Amazon rainforest contains 10 per cent of all biomass on Earth. The forest thus stores vast amounts of carbon that is released into the atmosphere as deforestation takes place. These releases contribute to global warming.  
  • ·         The Amazon fires are particularly alarming as scientists have said that trees are the planet’s first line of defence against global warming.
  • ·          Trees are considered essential to climate stability and a study indicated planting a trillion trees could remove two-thirds of all the emissions caused by humans. 
  • ·         The loss of trees and other vegetation can cause climate change, desertification, soil erosion, fewer crops, flooding, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and a host of problems for indigenous people.
  • ·         The loss of trees and other vegetation can cause climate change, desertification, soil erosion, fewer crops, flooding, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and a host of problems for indigenous people.
  • ·         In addition, one of the most dangerous and unsettling effects of deforestation of the Amazon is the loss of animal and plant species due to their loss of habitat.
  • ·         The trees also help control the level of water in the atmosphere by helping to regulate the water cycle.
  • ·         With fewer trees left there is less water in the air to be returned to the soil.
  • ·         Further effects of deforestation include soil erosion and coastal flooding.
  • ·         Without trees, soil erodes and washes away and the land which is left is then more susceptible to flooding, specifically in coastal regions.
  • ·         The main important point is that the most beautiful creature of nature will be gone for forever including natural beauty , wildlife , flora and fauna.
  • ·         We can also say that the pride of the whole world will be gone and it will be a story for our future generation.
