According to NASA experts, due to last year's drought, a huge amount of Amazon forests did not recover even after several months. Thus, on an area of ​​2,435,000 km², the vegetation has sharply decreased and there is no hope for recovery.

This is a huge problem as meteorologists say the 2010 drought is turning normal due to global warming.

The Amazon rainforest cannot live in dry weather conditions; they need heavy rainfall. Otherwise, the trees will be destroyed by nature, and the process of rotting wood will lead to a huge carbon emission, which will serve as a strong additional impetus to increase global warming.

The area destroyed by the drought in 2010 was 4 times the previous maximum amount of forest lost in the Amazon due to the 2004 drought.

It is worth noting that the Amazon rivers are rapidly shallowing and in 2010 the lowest water level was recorded in the port of Manuas in the last 109 years.

Whether people will think about it before they destroy life on Earth remains a mystery. Most likely, we ourselves will very soon see the answer to this question.

Animals have already experienced the effects of global warming on themselves. So in 2010, during a drought in the Amazonian forests, a huge number of animals and fish died.
