The world is on fire

Lily Woods investigates the destruction taking place in the Amazon rainforest

Anything on Earth that can be seen from space is always vast in size, and often moreso than the naked eye can comprehend. It is oceans and rivers, countries and islands, the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef or the Pyramid of Giza. And so, when smoke from a fire, or many fires, is visible on the satellite images of the world’s leading space station, you can count on it being something phenomenal in scale.

In July of this year, Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (known as the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais, or INPE, inpe.br) reported substantially increased rates of forest fires across the Amazon rainforest. However, it was only when NASA corroborated these findings with their own satellite images of smoke darkening the skies above Sao Paolo, a city thousands of kilometres from the site of the fires, that the eyes of the world were drawn to the plight of the world’s largest rainforest.

About Vegan Life

Time and time again we ask what the best way to advocate is, and the answer most people here at Vegan Life HQ give is food. It’s the time of year when we tend to spend more time at home, and cooking over a hot stove or spending an afternoon baking seems much more appealing and less of a chore than it did in summer. So now is the ideal time to get in the kitchen and start trying out some new and delicious recipes. If you think you could never bake a loaf of bread, now is the time to try. If you worry that your curry lacks flavour or your homemade brunch consists of toast and marmite, get experimenting. We’ve rounded up some brilliant dishes to cater for all palates, and I implore you to give them a whirl and then, crucially, share them. Be that person at work sending a company-wide email declaring there are vegan cakes in the tea room (try the Lamingtons on p69 — they are divine). Invite your friends over for an Ethiopian feast they’ll never forget (head to p74 to see how) and tempt your family to dinner with an aubergine pilaf cake (see p62). And whilst you have your nearest and dearest gathered around, with full stomachs and, hopefully, open minds, start a conversation about veganism. You never know what seeds you might plant. It’s all excellent prep for the upcoming December festivities. I hope you enjoy the supplement with this issue, which has everything you need to veganise your Christmas. Have a great month, Phillipa Smith
