The Amazon Dried Up

What is the matter with mankind they refuse to pay attention to serious problems with our planet’s life support systems? In 2005 the Amazon dried up. The army had to bring in drinking water by helicopter. The Amazon is normally the rainiest place on earth. It is the lungs of the earth. In the Amazon there is a vicious circle of deforestation, baking sun, dying forests and drought. If you saw your lungs were dying, would you the ignore the problem? Of course, not. Why then do you ignore your planetary lungs? If they die so will you.
