The international community needs to ACT. NOW.

Bolsonaro is playing ego-games:

The countries in the G-7 – the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada – donated $20 million to help fight the fires, but Bolsonaro refused to accept the money unless Macron apologizes. Bolsonaro is playing games while the Amazon burns.

Let’s all just calm down a bit. First, the planet HEALS ITSELF. The fires are preparing the environment for RENEWAL. As old as the earth itself, these fires prepare the soil for new growth. Even farms will replace the trees as sources of Oh-Two. The Amazon forest MAYBE contributes 3% of the earths free oxygen, with the world’s oceans producing more than 70%. Next, the only stats we have that even HINT at global warming are at best only 140 years in the making, and then produce only AVERAGES. So, according to NASA research, the AVERAGE temperature of the earth has increased MAYBE 1.5 degrees in 140 years for a planet 4.5 BILLION years old, with a history of alternating ICE AGES. Climate change is NOT man-made. Climate change is NATURAL. Humans are ADAPTABLE. Industrialized nations should CURB their emissions, but no drastic changes need be made, and certainly none of it should be a major political or social issue. A much more urgent issue is the Global War on Terror, and how we respond, as a global community, to the scourge of Islamist countries who terrorize their own AND the global community. PEACE is our most valuable resource. The rest will take care of itself, but I fear, just like we had to do in the Barbary Wars to save our republic, we must once again go it alone to save ourselves.
