Nature set on fire by humans
A "Canadair" (fire-fighting plane) works hard to fight a massive forest fire in Calabria, Southern Italy. Last summer a huge number of fires, mostly purposely started and "directed" by humans, have destroyed a large portion of forests. The impact of forest fires is huge in terms of pollution, CO production, reduction of forest and green area, acidification of soil, reduction of wild plants and animals habitat. There is nothing that can justify this price.
