  • More than 100,000 forest fires have ravaged Brazil so far this year, as August 2019 saw blazes tearing through the Amazon region in record-high numbers. Rises in deforestation and a practice called slash-and-burn, which is used to make more agricultural land, are to blame for most of the fires. Despite a 60-day ban on land-clearing fires put in place by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro last month, burning in the Amazon has continued – leading to an increase in air pollution and a spike in carbon monoxide emissions, according to the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service. In this aerial view, photographer Victor Moriyama captured a section of the Amazon rainforest that was decimated by wildfires in the Candeias do Jamari region near Porto Velho, Brazil. | August 25, 2019 | 📷: @victormoriyama | #GettyImagesNews ⁠

  • A silhouetted firefighter walks through thick smog from burned peatland in Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Recent satellite data shows that the number of forest fires have jumped sharply as illegal blazes being set to clear land for agricultural plantations have raged across Indonesia's Sumatra and Borneo islands. Thousands of firefighters are struggling to contain the fires, as concerns have risen about the effects of increased smog across South-East Asia and the impact of wildfire outbreaks worldwide due to global warming. | September 14, 2019 | 📷: @uletifan | #GettyImagesNews #Indonesia #IndonesiaFirefighter #Palangkaraya #fire #smog
