In August 2019, much of the world was transfixed by images of the burning jungles of the Amazon basin. Who cannot be horrified by the destruction of both forest and animal life in this blaze? This is the annihilation of one of the major factors in the health of the planet. The threat to our existence is dramatic and so massive that it can be seen from space. When placed alongside the massive fires raging in Russia and Africa, they represent a tragic trend; the planet is indeed on fire. These are images that draw our attention, but there are other areas of intense destruction that are not so visible.
