The pictures are sure frightening and raise a concern about the extent of these wildfires. The Amazon rainforest is one of the most important ecological systems on the planet. It serves as an important forest cover to reduce the effects of global warming. There are several appeals to Save the Amazon from the fires but the extent of the fire is too huge. The cause of these fires has become a debatable issue among everyone. While the natural causes cannot be ignored, they are also deliberately started to illegally deforest land. While the extent of the fires is sure a cause of worry, the aftereffects are more worrisome.
