90 acres of rainforest are destroyed every minute. It threatens half the world’s species with extinction. For a comparison- at that rate, New York’s Central Park would be destroyed in 9 minutes, London’s Hyde Park in 4 minutes, Tokyo’s Ueno Park in 2 minutes, Champs de Paris and Orsted Park in Copenhagen in 1 minute. How quickly would you work to stop deforestation if it were happening in your city?
