Oh no! The Amazon is drying outCurse you, globbal woaming!

The WWF said global warming could turn up to 60 per cent of the rain forest into dry land, destroying the region’s rich diversity of species in the process.

Hey—the Amazon thrives on dry weather! Gobble wamming, you’re the greatest!

Most plants do their growing during the rainy season and stall out when it’s dry. But in much of the Amazon rainforest, dry spells bring on growth spurts.
