In this article, It blames the burning of the rainforest on an underlying cause which is criminal activity is causing these fires to spiral out of control. This article takes a shot at the brazilian government for not enforcing rules which would minimize the rate of burning in the amazon. The author states that happening at an alarming rate and the more open landscape is leading to a drier and more fire prone atmosphere. She calls for the Brazilian government to stand up and put an end to illegally harvesting the natural resources which the Amazon provides. This comes after deforestation has increased significantly due to the president of brazil claiming during his campaign that the forests “were open for business”. I believe the stakeholders in this is directed towards the Brazilian government and how they are responsible for the problems and how change is needed now. Another stakeholder in this article is environmentalists because it is their job to find the underlying factors of this burning and try to come up with a solution. The final category of stakeholders is the people like myself. The people who care about the cause but really have no way of affecting it besides spreading the knowledge to create awareness into what is truly happening to the rainforest and who is to blame. I plan on using this article to help me truly depict the causes to this problem.

In this article, it compares the science behind ancient practices of burning the Amazon in which have happened for thousands of years and what is occurring now. This article provides more of a scientific background into the burnings. It provides the readers with information for the past such as survival methods for how people in the past have burned the amazon for agriculture reasons but ensured the preservation of the land compared to the current people who are clearing land and causing the Amazon to dry up and become extremely fire prone.I believe this article is targeted towards farmers in Brazil in order to give them tips based off their research of how to properly use the Amazon while also conserving it. Another stakeholder in this article is the Brazilian government who should use this scientific research to better manage their policy to help protect the Amazon. I plan on using this scientific research to choose images that provide the reasons why the Amazon is burning at an alarming rate even though it has been burning for thousands of years.

This article acts more as an update into the burning of the Amazon and tracks trends from this year and compares it to last years data. The author provides a graph which shows the trend of fires per month from 2018-2019. The data is very interesting because it shows very similar data besides August in which there was a large spike up. The author explains that the real problem in this situation comes from deforestation which is causing the Amazon to be more open which causes it to dry out at a faster rate and become more fire prone. The author calls for stricter regulations on deforestation not just burning. The author also goes into talking about how the fire has spread from the Amazon region in Brazil to the Cerrado savannah. I found this interesting because the Cerrado is referred to as the most endangered ecosystem in the world. The author includes stats such as that the number of trees lost in the Cerrado is equivalent to 440 million tons of CO2 released into the environment. The stakeholders in the article are more for the general public. I believe the point of this article is to spread awareness of the changes and the danger of the changes. This article could also be useful to environmentalists trying to find data into why there is an increase of burnings in specific months compared to years past. I plan on using this information to better depict the problem and clarify to people what is truly causing these fires and how they can be stopped.
