Send the US Military to the Amazon

Right now the Amazon rainforest is being intentionally destroyed at world altering rates. Fires are being used by humans in order to speed up the deforestation process while the Brazilian government is refusing to accept foreign aid and refusing to strengthen environmental protection laws. If we don't do something NOW (not a month from now, not a year from now, RIGHT NOW), everyone and everything on earth will be at risk..

This CANNOT be understated. The entire Earth and everything on it will be at risk.

Not Only an Environmental Decision

I understand that people have different opinions and view the world in different ways, but regardless of what your views are, there is no doubt that this is a STRATEGIC decision. In fact, it's arguably one of the MOST strategic decisions that any country has ever had the chance to make.

If the USA is able to pull together and create a task force dedicated to protecting and sustaining the Amazon rainforest, the USA could be potentially saving the entire Earth by guaranteeing the carbon sink survives. The USA will also be showing solidarity and strength, pushing the country into a position that has never been achieved by any single country in the history of the human race.

The political sway and overall image of dominance and morality that would be created by saving and guaranteeing the reforestation of the Amazon rainforest will undoubtedly put the USA on the course to uniting the entire world sometime in the future.

This isn't some dream, this is reality RIGHT NOW. If we can arrive in the Amazon and stop the fires while creating a system to restore the jungle, EVERYBODY will have to pay attention. This is a chance to CURB CLIMATE CHANG AND IMPROVE RELATIONS with every single country on the earth.

The Campaign Trail

Your support will cause a difference in the campaign. For every milestone that is reached, I personally will be stepping up and researching how to increase exposure and finding possible steps we can take in order to push the petition to the next level. Not only that, but I will be donating 25$ or more at every milestone and fighting until the Amazon's last breath.

If you have any ideas that could push us forward, please leave a comment when you sign. Every comment will be read and regular updates will be sent out as we reach milestones.

The Amazon Basin is an Amazing Place

There has been over an 85% increase in fires this season in the Amazon Basin, with no noticeable change in weather conditions. Nearly 77,000 fires have been recorded so far.

More than 20% of the worlds entire oxygen supply is created by the Amazon rainforest. That number is dropping every second while the Amazon is burning.

If we cannot stop the deforestation NOW, it's possible that the rainforest will not return to its original state, and rather become something of a savanna.

The Amazon rainforest used to be OVER HALF of the remaining rainforest on the Earth and is considered to be the "lungs" of the planet.

The species of birds found in the rainforest account for more than 33% of all of the bird species on Earth. If the rainforest is destroyed, most of the species will be gone forever.

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000,000 species of plants in the world. The Amazon rainforest has about half of all of those species. If it is destroyed, it will be a crippling loss in biodiversity.
