Description:
The authors warn governments, societies and humanity about the future of Amazonia. It is dying. Who will save Amazonia? The world is at war with COVID-19, climate change and social inequality. This book shows that Amazonia is a key entity in the victory of humanity against these three ‘plagues’ of modernity. A worldwide mobilization is needed to stop its cultural and ecological destruction. Its full submission to the market and to predatory privatization contribute to this process that has had a global impact. It is an open question as many diseases and pandemics could spread throughout the world as a result of continued destruction of this incredibly biodiverse region. It has about 163 indigenous peoples, over 2000 rivers and 400 billion trees. It is important for world food security, climate change mitigation and bioindustries. Its importance for humanity is analyzed from a sustainable perspective. This tragedy has been aggravated by the dispersion of COVID-19 in the region. This book shows that Brazilian Amazonia’s future is a world tragedy. Who will save Amazonia? According to Marcílio and Marilene, the responsibility of its sustainable protection comes from us all.
