The announcement was made via Twitter.
As Cook pointed out, the Amazon rainforest is an intregal part of Latin America's ecosystem. There's not telling the type of longterm damage these fires could have displacing thousands of animal species. That's not even including the carbon dioxide the fires are releasing into the atmosphere.
The fires have been burning for a few weeks now across Latin America. In Brazil alone, over 79,500 fires have occurred destroying thousands of acres of forest.
