    Usually, you’d be able to walk these paths. But the Olho D'Água river had submerged these hiking trails in Brazil’s Recanto Ecológico Rio da Prata.

    Torrential rains in a short period of time lead to the flooding – a rare phenomenon that has happened at least three times in the last 16 years. Olho D’Água ("eyes of water”) is a popular snorkeling spot known for its crystalline waters. The clarity of the river comes from minerals that rapidly take out dirt and impurities as they descend to the bottom. The water receded to its normal level by the end of the day. Recanto Ecológico Rio da Prata is in Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil’s pantanal region.

    Liberals: your toxic solar panels don't absorb greenhouse gases or make oxygen and won't compensate for deforestation:

    Environmentalists say it will make illegal deforestation of the world's largest rainforest acceptable.

    Farmers say the changes give producers confidence to grow the economy.

    The Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical rainforest in the world and home to plant and animal species that are still being discovered by scientists.
