“We can claim that the situation in the Amazon is just part of a normal cycle, but that is not exactly what is happening here,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told the closing press conference of the Group of Seven meeting in France. “Our societies, our environment, our health and our world will continue to rise unless we take decisive action as part of our broader commitment to fighting climate change.”

The Canadian pledge is separate from another plan agreed by G7 leaders until this morning to tackle the Amazon fires and contribute to a rescue in the region, which includes providing $ 20 million in emergency aid.

Roughly 74,000 fires have ravaged the Amazon so far this year.

That’s an increase of more than 80 per cent compared to last year.

That’s led to the rainforest burning at a rate never before seen, and has prompted global outcries about the lack of action to combat the devastation of a region known as “the lungs of the earth” for its ability to absorb massive amounts of carbon dioxide and produce about 20 per cent of the world’s oxygen.
