Man buys forest to protect it from humans- He wants to save it for future generation

Human beings are one of the reasons why Earth is experiencing a massive change. At one end, man is reaping benefits with the technology, natural resources- and at the other end- he is becoming lethargic and stupid day by day. God created everything we are surrounded by.

But the humans are taking the world in a wrong way barring little positives. One shouldn’t destroy mother nature in order to gain their needs and wants.The humans might be getting everything that they need but the reality is that they will certainly be punished by the nature itself- if they don’t mind what they blindly doing to environment.

As things are getting bad to worse, everyone is looking for a Messiah who can magically fix our planet in the right way by waving his stick. Not Messiah but a lover of nature- Johan Eliash– who is Swedish millionaire- took a big step in an attempt to save the environment. He bought over 4,00,000 acres of Amazon forest land in Brazil (a big portion of the total Amazon rainforest) for a good cause. He spent 14 million dollars for bagging the complete ownership from a lodging company. Yes, you read it right!

It must be noted that more than 20% of the world oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rainforest. One of the substantial elements for the human beings to survive is ‘Oxygen’. We have cut trees, cleared forest and made buildings and roads- as a consequence, our planet is going through Global Warming. There is a fall in oxygen and rise in CO2 in earth’s atmosphere. Clearly we cannot afford to lose this forest as most of oxygen come therefrom.

Thanks to the trees that give us oxygen when they use energy from sunlight to make glucose from carbon dioxide and water. On the dark side, humans do deforestation to lead luxurious life overlooking the laws of nature. This indeed poses a severe threat to the chances of survival of all living organism on earth. Because of this, the food chain gets affected and thereby we might have to face the end of the world- a total carnage.

A big thanks to Johan Eliasch who is probably aware of scenario earth is in. He has bought the forest and he will not allow anyone to cut trees or do any harm to greenery. He wants to protect environment for future generation. He will spend more in future, and encourage others as well, to secure greenery of the world.

Ever since he afforded the major portion of the rainforest, he hogged into the limelight and became famous all over the social media platform. Well, may not spend millions, as he did, to save earth, but we can spread this news and encourage such people. Forward this news to others and make it viral.
