Recall, that at the beginning of summer 2019, due to continuous draught, Siberia was affected by major forest fires. The fire engulfed over 3 million hectares, which is almost half of the entire forestland and the affected territory is the same size as Belgium.
The trees that were growing in these areas were supplying oxygen to over 11 thousand people!
Instead of fresh air, people from neighboring cities and towns get to inhale carbon dioxide and are suffocating from the smoke. Unfortunately, this is not the only major fire from the 21st century. Zoomboola will tell you all about the forest fires of the new millennium in this video!
