One in ten of all known species on the planet are found in the Amazon Rainforest.
An unknown politician ‘leverages social media’ to come from no where to take the presidency of Brazil in January this year. This person has stated publicly since election that his agenda is to turn swathes of the Amazon Rainforest into paddocks.
What does ‘leveraging social media’ mean exactly. Pay a bunch of people to set up fake accounts? Other countries (or corporations) influencing the internal politics of a country via social media during elections?
Rainforests require a buffer zone, remove the buffer zone and the rainforest will retreat. People talking about how many metres of rainforest being lost each hour. How many lives being lost each hour. Jaguar, monkeys, frogs, butterflies. The haven for one in ten of all known species being obliterated by the hour.
Please regulate the social media marketplace.
