In 1542,Francisco de orellana led the first European voyage down the Amazon River. During this voyage the explorer met a lot of resistance(抵抗)from the local Indians. In one particular tribe the women fighter were so fierce that they drove their male fighter in front of them with spears. Thus the river the was named after the famous women fighters of the ancient Great stories. the Amazons.
This voyage also started our wonder of the greatest river and the largest area of rainforest on the world. About 20% of all freshwater carried to the oceans is from the Amazon River.

This also produces a large area of rainforest, which supports the largest number of diverse plants and animals of any area in the world.

So having more CO2 in the atmosphere acts like a fertilizer, stimulating plant growth. Because of the size of the Amazon rainforest, it seems that presently it is taking up a large percentage of our CO2 pollution in the atmosphere, about 75%of the world’s car pollution.
