巴西亞馬遜雨林早前發生大火,為抑制火災,總統博爾索納羅簽署法令,全國禁止放火開闢農地(火耕)六十天。當地農民習慣以火耕方式闢地,開發土地種植大豆或飼養牛隻。巴西森林今年以來已發生約八萬五千宗火災,逾半發生在亞馬遜,引來各國關注。

Huge fire broke out in Amazon rainforest in Brazil. In order to restrain the fire accident, President Jair Bolsonaro signed an act to forbid using fire to open up farmland (slash-and-burn agriculture) for sixty days. Local farmers used to open up new land for soybean cultivation and cattle rearing by slash-and-burn agriculture. Till now, there has been approximately 85,000 times of fi re in forests of Brazil this year. More than half happened in Amazon, drawing attention from various countries.
