Lungs in the news

This month, large scale deforestation and fires are destroying the lungs of the earth.

The Amazon absorbs most of the planet's carbon emissions, allowing us to pollute freely, as god intended.

Don't confuse "lung" with:

Luge: A winter sport. Enjoy while we still have winters.

Lunge: A sudden movement forward. Ex: I lunged at the swordfish and punctured my lung. I regret nothing.

Lounge: A place to relax. Ex: Let's sit calmly in my lounge while the planet burns.
