This week we discuss the horrific, human-caused fires burning in the Amazon, and National Geographic's Natasha Daly tells us how the millions of plant and animal species living in the world's largest tropical rainforest are affected by these fires. Next, we talk to Dr. Miriam Goldstein, the Director of Ocean Policy at the Center for American Progress, about all the ways that humans are negatively impacting the ocean and the species that call it home.
Chad the Bird is back this week to talk about algae blooms in Lake Eerie.
