It isn't as bad as you think. Or maybe it is.

Another week has passed and we're back with the climate updates! This is "Let's balance out" and you'll read one good news and one bad news about the climate crisis. Shall we begin?

So what do you want first? The good news or the bad news?

New footage by Greenpeace shows fires raging over the Amazon Forest and it worries this year's wildfires might be like last year's if not worse.

A campaigner for Greenpeace spent days flying over a wide area and exposes the Brazilian government as it is dismantling environment protection.

Saudi Aramco, the world's biggest oil company, has agreed to reduce the carbon intensity of its business as a part of the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative. It's a good start even though climate experts say that having intensity targets cannot replace a commitment to reduce carbon emissions on a absolute basis by producing less oil and gas.
