Life on earth would not be possible without freshwater and oxygen created by places like the Amazon, “The Lungs of the World.”
The girl in this video is pleading for change. “Equador is not going to get out of poverty just because they come and drill for oil in the Amazon,” she says. “Equador is going to lose the only rainforest that we have left. It´s going to destroy cultures, the environment, and kill plants and animals…That´s not getting out of poverty.”
The future of humanity depends on not burning two-thirds of our oil reserves. This effects us all!
