Each year, global fires fueled by the climate crisis, and the deliberate burning of forests, peatlands and other landscapes for livestock and feed are getting worse and worse. The combination of smoke, smog, and haze during the COVID-19 global pandemic could aggravate the current health crisis.
We must demand national governments and international decision-makers like the UNFCCC to take meaningful action to combat global fires.
From Australia to Russia to the United States, mega-fires, sparked by human activity and the climate crisis, cause immeasurable damage.
Smoke and haze travel hundreds of kilometers and cover Indigenous territories, local communities, and urban centers alike, damaging human health and aggravating respiratory illnesses.
In places like Brazil and Indonesia, precious rainforests are cut down and burned to make room for cattle, soy, and palm oil production for giant corporations.
We must demand that corporations and governments end the use of fossil fuels to halt the global heating that fuels wildfires. We must transition to a green and just recovery powered by clean energy.
We must protect and restore ecosystems that are more resilient to fires and stop once and for all the use of fires to clear land for commodity-driven agriculture that destroys our planet for corporate greed.
