There is some information missed in the article that started this thread. About 20% of our oxygen comes from that forest. A lot of the land being burned will be used for growing crops by farmers. What crop? Soy beans could be the main one. Brazil is the only other country in the world who can grow the number of soy beans the US can. China is no longer buying soybeans from the US thanks to Trump. They are now going to buy all of their soybeans from Brazil.

The current president of Brazil is often referred to as the Trump of South America. He is a far right nut just like Trump. The same people who got Trump elected here worked to get him elected in Brazil. Trump supported him and thinks he his great. The full story on what the people from the US did is just starting to come out. What we know so far. Gun manufactures spent money and time to aid his campaign. The NRA worked to help get him elected. There are reports that Steve Bannon was present to assist him, and Russia thinks he is fine.  Keep your eye on this part and watch to see what Steve Bannon did, and if there was money from the Mercers.

All of these things are tied together, and the far right are behind everyone of them. The far right gave us Brexit in the UK, Trump in the US, Current govt. in Italy, Drove some eastern European countries far right, Tried to get France far right (They lost this one), and now are trying to over throw the Pope.  Once you accept the fact this is a world wide problem you can see why we must get Trump, and everyone with an R behind their name out of office in 2020 for the world to survive as we all know it.

People are deliberately starting fires in the #AmazonRainforest to illegally deforest indigenous land for cattle ranching

 

Pataxó woman: “These assholes came in and burned down [our reservation]... I want all of the media here to see this”

 

 
So what can I do about it?
 
My government won't do anything,
 
I can boycott Brazil, maybe if enough people people with power inside Brazil are effected they can stop it.

THE AMAZON IS BURNING

Message 15 of 15

The Amazon is being shrouded in plumes of smoke as fires rage across parts of the rainforest, imperilling the so-called "lungs of the planet" and the vast array of life to which it is home. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/08/amazon-burning-190823082046821.html

Conservationists have blamed Mr Bolsonaro for the Amazon's plight, saying he has encouraged loggers and farmers to clear the land, and scientists say the rainforest has suffered losses at an accelerated rate since he took office in January.   https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-49415973  

 Bill Maher  last night  had questioned  why none of the billionaires who have excess monies  have made an attempt to buy Brazil.     He mentioned in the past that Ted Turner for one did buy expanses of land.    

 

If you don't get HBO---you can get a re--run of his show on u-tube.    His final thoughts were for Trump to reverse his opinion on climate change and went into a long  serious talk laced with humor.    .
