The raging  forest fires that have engulfed nearly 30,000 square kilometers (11,580 sq. miles) of territory in Siberia and the Russian Far East — an area the size of Belgium, have quickly become an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe. Not only is forest habitat and wildlife being lost and human habitat and health put at risk , but the burning of forest and scrub is emitting enormous amounts of greenhouse gas in the form of CO2 into the atmosphere. Additionally the already melting Arctic permafrost (frozen soil) is being put at risk of further heating and melting , thereby accelerating the process of dangerous  release of methane stored in the permafrost (methane is 86 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than CO2 over the first 20 years and 36 times over 100 years )  as well as damage to homes and buildings .

We call upon President Trump to 1) immediately provide economic aid to Russia to help fight these fires the country is ill-prepared to tackle on its own 2) Encourage the Russian government to address the entire areas of fire, not just a very small part of it 3) Call upon other governments to also provide such aid
