Deforestation is at an all time high. The Amazon rainforest is being killed at alarming rates.

Fires are being set ablaze in the forest to clear land for farming. We know they are man made fires since the forest cannot naturally be set on fire because of its damp nature. Fires are also being used as a method to drive native people off their land. “The Amazon has one of the highest concentrations of biodiversity in the world,” according to Vox. We are quickly killing off animals that are endangered and some that may not even have been discovered yet. The Amazon holds secrets we may never know because humans killed it. People are trying to stop this devastating deforestation but their voices are being hidden by large companies looking to use the land for profits.

    I have a student in my Intro class who believes the media ignored — or covered up — this story. I rather doubt there is any media conspiracy going on, but it is od it took so long for these stories to reach America.

    Who is the audience for these stories? Does it matter if we know?
