导演：克里斯托弗·J·卡特 & 阿波罗·索尔达那
Country: The United States
Director: Christopher J Carter & Apollo Saldana
Overview: We see how around the world each year more landscapes are impacted by drought and fire, only to be flooded when the rains do come. That was abundantly clear in the Australian bushfires of 2020.
But amidst this disaster, in an especially horrific year of heat and fire, there were also examples of places that were cool and moist, that had no problem weathering the fires. One of these places was the Canberra Botanical Gardens, a Rainforest created by Humans in New South Wales, Australia. The rainforest acts as a green lifeboat. Keeping temperatures cool with photosynthesis throughout the year.
