Who’s responsible for fighting the Amazon fires?

The Amazon is burning. There have been more than 55,000 fires reported in the Brazilian Amazon this year. The Amazon is the world's largest rainforest and is sometimes called the “lungs of the world” because of the amount of oxygen it produces and how it fights climate change. The Amazon may exist in only a handful of countries, but its impact is felt around the globe. The fire’s far-reaching impact has led some to argue that the international community should have more say in how it’s treated. This point of view raises questions about whether other nations have the right, or the power, to dictate what happens within Brazil's borders.
