    Many people know about the tragedy of Madagascar. I mean deforestation and land degradation. The result of years of deforestation is droughts. When they chopped up forests for profit and agricultura they changed the local climat and ecosystems. Now they have no forests, no agricultura, no fertile lands. Unfortunately, people don’t get the lesson but going on doing such silly things in many other parts of the world.

    • Avatar Audio Samples says:

      It’s the South that has this drought.
      I am from Eastern part and it rains there.

    • Avatar Eugene Vikernua says:

      @Audio Samples, glad to read you from Magagascar. I might be bad informed. Is it true that Madagascar destroyed its forests?

  14. Avatar Emily M says:

    Food/water is scarce. They can barely support themselves yet keep mindlessly procreating which further contributes to the problem.

      @Tajveer Sidhu Cargill, the world’s largest private corporation, working as the arm of US Imperialism, DUMPED food into Somalia at 1/6th the local farm price, thereby destabilizing Mogadishu that previously had been controlled by the farmers. That’s how US “Food for Peace” imperialism works.

    Imagine, the rich forests of madagascar reduced to desert. The unfortunate effect of human activity and climate change, coupled with a lack of development or any safty nets for farmers. Heartbreaking scenes

    Very sad! They have destroyed most of their forest. Forest bring rain!

    • Avatar Audio Samples says:

      There are no forest in the south.It’s alawys been semi desertic.

    • Avatar Guls M Vlogs says:

      @Audio Samples What about the other side. Environment destruction effects all the country.

    • Avatar Audio Samples says:

      @Guls M Vlogs There was less rain all over Madagascar during the wet season this year. Rainfall around rainforest of the island is a bit normal. Only the south faces severe drynesss because it got only 3 weeks of rainfall which is still not enough for ending the drought there. It’s been for 1 year that drought existed in the south and it’s not yet solved.

      @Audio Samples OK

    Madagascar always had long dry seasons in most of the country. There are maps showing the areas of long drought since 70’s, in some years are worse than others. Sub deserts arid regions are in all the west coast, nothing to do with climate change, but a typical natural local climate. Poverty is the root of all problems.

    In such situations, the first thing to do is stop procreating. There is no honour in having 10 starving children while it is clear you cant feed them. In africa we need family planning education asap

    this is the prime example of two legged sub-animals on earth, worldwide. human animal that has been on this earth for thousand of years, having 75% of this earth covered by water but animals are dying of starvation due to lack of water. Animals, stop killing each other in never ending wars, stop wasting money, stop destroying planet and start working together using the water on earth which is in abundance and often in excess in many places to get it where it needs to be (desalinate it)……
