As various regions across the globe become hotter and drier, destructive wildfires have been growing in size, ferocity, and speed. Wildfires that caused severe destruction of ecosystems, homes, and other types of property in Australia, California, Siberia, and parts of Europe were featured on Supreme Master Television in March of this year. Unfortunately, the dismaying weather phenomena caused by climate change continue to occur unabated. Now let’s travel to the Amazon, the world’s largest rainforest, which is home to approximately three million species of plants and animals, and one million indigenous people. Brazil has had more than 72,000 forest fires so far this year [2019]. More than half of them were in the Amazon. Wildfires often occur in the region during the dry season. But there has been an 84% increase from 2018, according to Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research. Like many countries, China has also seen a number of deadly forest fires due to dramatic weather effects. On March 31, 2020, a devastating wildfire broke out in Xichang, Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China's Sichuan Province. State television footage showed flames shooting into the sky above the city of Xichang, turning the sky orange. The fire was reported to have spread across more than 1,000 hectares of forest. In April 2020, several wildfires took place across Scotland due to dry, windy weather. More than 30 firefighters rushed to extinguish the blaze in the Kilpatrick Hills, West Dunbartonshire. Six trucks and a helicopter also arrived at the scene to help put an end to the raging flames. During the same week, similar fires were seen in the Highlands, and in the city of Dumfries and Galloway and in Stirling, a city in central Scotland. In May 2020, it was reported that more than a dozen wildfires were raging across the state of Florida, USA, burning property and prompting evacuations, as excessive heat and dry weather took place. The Florida Panhandle in the northern part of the state was among the hardest hit areas. Wildfires in at least three different parts of the Panhandle damaged or destroyed buildings, forcing more than 1,000 people to evacuate their homes. “Everything is good for people if they don’t eat meat anymore. So, they should also quit it for their better life, better health, better environment, and saving this Earth home for all to enjoy, especially for their future generations. If we don’t do it now, the Earth will be gone! It’s not a matter of personal choice anymore. It’s a planetary life-and-death matter.”
