Smoke is visible from space as wildfires burn in the Brazilian states of Amazonas, Mato Grosso, and Rondônia. Nearly 73,000 fires have been reported throughout the Amazon basin this year, a record number that has caused international concern for the future of the world’s largest and most biodiverse tract of rainforest. The fires, many of which have been set by loggers and ranchers to clear land for cattle, have also ignited global debate about the environment and agricultural production.
