    Amazon is burning at a rapid rate

    Brazil's northern and western regions have experienced an 83 percent increase in the number of fires in the first eight months of 2019 compared with the same time period last year, according to Brazil's space research centre INPE. Its satellite system detected 72,843 fires in the region this year. The states of Amazonas, Rondonia, Acre, Para and Mato Grosso do Sul were some of the most affected, and most of the burning happens inside the Amazon rainforest. In just a week, 9,507 new fires were detected in the world's biggest rainforest, commonly referred to as the "planet's lung".

    These NGOs starting the fire to try and embarrass the Bolsonaro administration need to stop. At this rate, Amazon will be no more. Many families are going to lose everything!

    Again here is Bucky defending a dictator right out of hand. Tell us what proof there is that the NGOs started the fire.

    Most of the footage I have seen look like fast moving brush fire in grassy areas so maybe this won't end up being as bad as it first appears.

    Whoa, for a moment there I thought you were talking about Amazon the company- that would have meant half my income from book sales!

    You don't think it has anything to do with the fact he removed protections for the Amazon?

    Strip farming, which I assume is driving this need for new land, needs to be outlawed and the US and any other willing nations should offer aid (or attach it as a requirement to existing aid) to make it happen.

    As far as I know, with proper farm land management there's no need to constantly clear new land.

    Something tells me Bolsonaro is weaponizing deforestation. If another one-fifth of the Amazon is cut down it will release around 44 gigatons of asphyxiating carbon monoxide in a sort of carbon bomb with a blast radius literally inter-****ing-continental in scale. Where are all of the ****ing interventionist Neocon warhawks when you need them? Oh, that's right, misguidedly obsessing over Iran or China, or even So-Incompetent-It-Can't-Into-Economy-Venezuela.

    (By comparison, the most powerful explosion ever detonated was Russia's 'Tsar bomba' at 50 megatons. 1 gigaton is equal to One-****ing-Thousand megatons. Meaning Brazil has a bomb equal to or greater than every single ****ing other nuclear ARSENAL ON EARTH (Not combined, but's that equal to approximately a thousand Tsar Bombas. Only country that probably has a nuclear arsenal that's stronger than Brazil's makeshift 'dirty WMD' is the United States of America itself, and even that's iffy))

    The fire @NotreDame received more international coverage than this.
