"Moon over the city of sao Paulo Brazil this week more than a thousand miles away from the Amazon rain forest Dr the smoke originated as the Brazilian Amazon is experiencing a record amount of players the sheer number of fires in the Amazon rain forces almost doubled since last year according to the non governmental environmental organization Greenpeace ABC news foreign correspondent jeans longlisted reporting on the story I got a chance to talk to about it earlier this week my hearing these numbers right seventy four thousand fires this year and almost ten thousand thousand just just since since last last week week in in the the Amazon Amazon rainforest rainforest yeah yeah that's that's absolutely absolutely right right I I mean mean there there are are flies flies every every year year at at this this time time of of year year but but this this is is you you know know we we have have never never seen seen anything anything quite like this these fires are often started off by farmers who have to clear tracts of land to to Rick castle but nothing of this scale and the the images from space all quite something you know looking down on South America you could see wisps of white you think that crowds than not that smoke it's traveling it's trouble that's the over seventeen hundred miles right the waiver to sell Paolo when that city on Monday was basically was a blackout people were driving home from work and in the middle of the day and you can see the images the basically the city just looks like it's night all that headlamps are on driving home so I think this really has you know out the interesting just what is going on in the Amazon so you mentioned that him and many times the fires were started by farmers were clearing the land for cattle is that we're almost to the started is it the the warm temperatures is it on purpose is it because there's been less attention paid by the Brazilian government to what's been going on in the rainforest recently I think probably all of the above I mean we should say that they're all of the fires going on in other parts of South America for example Bolivia just over the border two thousand square miles of forest is currently on file and it isn't it you know the these things happen every year the because like you said it is summertime there is drought we called a rain forest but actually pulse of the forest can suffer with drought but yes it's a it's it's something that farmers do all over the world there are controlled fires in order to be able to read a castle we have an insatiable hunger for meat products and dairy products all over the world and so there is a big big need for it but yes there has been a lot of criticism on for the government and particularly for chapel Cynara than you'd elected president nah who has basically makes no bones about it he's pro development and not too keen on conservation yeah one of the things he did recently was blame NGOs said was retaliation that these fires have been set for retaliation because he hadn't funded the rain forest I mean is that just bluff I mean come on really mean yeah that's bluff I think we can probably safely say I mean to keep a let's put it like this he hasn't provided any evidence was also we had evidence for that he said it's just a feeling that he had but you know his the people who support him will say it's because he's cut funding for NGOs and so they've got this kind of I suppose they they want to be able to get a more kind of notoriety they will people to know they existed they want more money like that but I think it's it's quite clear that NGOs who care about the environment and have been looking after the M. as in for decades probably wouldn't be setting light to it he has come into his class for them a number of times in fact just last month he fired the head of Brazil space agency off that they had a disagreement about the numbers over deforestation it was highlighted by the space agency because of the the people who taking photographs from the sky over the I was in rain forests that deforestation had had gotten out of control I'm bill sorry said well that's it you're out of here so you know this isn't the first time that he's had this issue is just kind of race to our attention now because of the scale of this fire in so James and tell us a little bit about the importance of the Amazon rainforest its size and just really what it means means for the entire the entire world what is the hall for the size of the United States and it has about three million different varieties of plant and animal life but a million people live their indigenous the indigenous people which have been increasingly threatened in recent days they call it home it is vital because a vast amount of carbon in its trees sucks in carbon dioxide development of tree sorry they suck in carbon in the atmosphere which we need to sort of slow down and global warming to slow down the rise in global temperatures so this is an extraordinarily important part of the world is responsible for producing something like twenty percent of the oxygen that week old breed and it's extraordinary that over the last fifty or so years a shocking twenty percent of it has already been cut away and every every minute minute of of every every day day something something like like a a soccer soccer pitch pitch and and the the Hoff Hoff is is cut cut down down and and say say what what scientists scientists say say is is there there is is a a tipping tipping point point the the you could reach with the rain forest where if too much of these too many of these trees are cut down the rainforest cannot sustain itself and then there will be a does a Tatian effect whereby they would be able to nourish its own soil because a very particular type of soul that you need in a rain forest and that and in his much larger part of the rainforest could just die out without anyone cutting these trees down so it is a pretty severe situation not exactly according to it one conservationists is quoted as saying every time you look at a satellite image of the forest you see another little piece missing in those little
