“The Amazon rainforest is on fire, but there is a psychological trap to be cautious of.
“Like a lot of people I’ve been really deeply affected by what’s happening in the Amazon rainforest here in August 2019, as the red line of logging and fires, many of them set deliberately to clear land for soybean plantations and cattle plantations and sugar cane.
