How the plagued Amazon suffers severe fires and deforestation
French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday said wildfires in the Amazon were an "international crisis" and called on this weekend's G7 to address the issue.
"Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rainforest -- the lungs which produce 20 per cent of our planet's oxygen -- is on fire. It is an international crisis. Members of the G7 Summit, let's discuss this emergency first order in two days!" Macron said on Twitter.
