The Amazon rain forest is slowly burning and no one seems to be talking about it.

     Recently there has been news that there is a horrible tragedy of amazon forest fires that have been affecting a bunch of people. 
Fires are raging at a record rate in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, and scientists warn that it could strike a devastating blow to the fight against climate change” CNN reported on their website. 

If the Amazon is on fire why aren’t we hearing about it?  

    Personally, I think that it is important to notify the people about the Amazon forest fires. These fires are just as much as an important topic as any of the other tragedies that have happened in the past ten years. I have asked students at Fivay high school. 

Some of the students here happen to agree. 10th grader Haylee Glover has been following the tragedy and noticed the same absence of news when it comes to this tragedy.

“it’s stupid it’s not in the news and it’s important so it should be in the news,” Glover said. 

People don’t understand how this tragedy could not be in the news it has affected tons of people. It should be in the news so that people can be informed about what is happening with the amazon forest fires.
