How You Can Help the Amazon

ITS HARD TO FACE THE TRUTH. For those wondering how they can help the Amazon. The answer is: STOP EATING BEEF. Ranchers and loggers regularly burn the Amazon to clear way for cattle. Brazil exports 20% of the world’s beef. Everyone who is speaking up for the Amazon but eating beef at the same time needs to understand the brutal truth: you’re part of the problem. If you don’t want to stop eating beef then at least know where it’s coming from and support local ranchers. WHY SHOULD WE CARE ABOUT THE AMAZON? WELL it is twice the size of India, and the largest tropical rainforest in the world. The Amazon produces 20% of the world's oxygen and helps stabilize the temperature of our earth. Without it, climate change could become irreversible. Here are some ways the Amazon rainforest helps the environment, and what these devastating fires could mean for climate change. The Amazon is a giant carbon sink. If it burns, that carbon will all go into the atmosphere. The Amazon contains 90 to 140 billion metric tons of carbon, according to WWF. Too much carbon in the atmosphere is one of the main reasons behind climate change. Imagine if all of that carbon was released into the atmosphere. Imagine if even a fraction of it was. The results could be devastating, the WWF says. SO ONCE AGAIN HOW CAN YOU HELL? 1. REDUCE YOUR MEAT INTAKE. 2. SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS. 3.
