Farmers are still burning swathes of land in the Amazon rainforest, despite Brazil announcing a ban on fires for land clearing.
More than 80,000 wildfires have broken out in the country this year, an increase of more than 84 per cent on last year.
President Jair Bolsonaro has come under fire over his fixation on developing the Brazils economy – even at the expense of the countrys protected rainforests.
Last month he shrugged off the fires as part of the time of year when farmers clear their land.
The right-wing climate change skeptic also tried to blame NGOs and environmentalists for setting them off them to make him look bad.
But he since appears to have given way to international pressure after Brazil enacted a 60 day ban on using forest fires to free up land in the Amazon.
Despite this, recent pictures show the worlds lungs are still being ravaged by flames.
The international community has watched on in horror as Brazils rainforests have gone up in smoke.
Last month Bolsonaro rejected an offer of $20 million (£18 million) in aid from the G7 states because he said it would leave his country being treated as a colony or a no mans land.
He then took a swipe at French President Emmanuel Macron and said he would only accept the offer if he took back his insults and apologised for calling him a liar.
Bolsonaro previously goaded Macron by telling him to take care of his home and his colonies instead.
But Macron insisted the aid money would benefit nine countries including Columbia and Bolivia.
As world leaders struggle to come up with a solution, ordinary people have been ditching Google for Ecosia, a search engine which uses its advertising revenue to fund the planting of millions of trees.
Bolsonaro said on Monday he was eager to speak about the fires at the next UN General Assembly meeting in September as the issue erodes his support at home.
He told reporters in Brasilia that he wanted to speak with patriotism about the Amazon, a region he said was ignored by previous administrations.
He said: I will not accept alms from any country in the world under the pretext of preserving the AmazonRead More – Source
