France’s Macron, football stars like Ronaldo unite against Amazon fires

In general, rarely have French President Emmanuel Macron and superstar footballers including Cristiano Ronaldo been on the same page – but when it comes to the fires that are devastating the Amazon, they’re uniting in sounding the alarm.

AP reports that five-time world player of the year Ronaldo beat Macron to the punch with his tweet urging action on the Amazon that, by Friday morning, had already racked up more than a quarter-million likes.

Ronaldo tweeted “the Amazon Rainforest produces more than 20% of the world’s oxygen and it’s been burning for the past 3 weeks. It’s our responsibility to help to save our planet.”

Macron’s tweet later  was similarly urgent, saying “Our house is burning. Literally.” Macron put the Amazon fires on the agenda for the G-7 summit of world leaders that France is hosting this weekend.
