Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
The recent spat between French President Macron and Bolsonaro has angered people, including me! Amazon rainforest forest fires. Some of it is natural, but most of it is manmade.
Farmers burn forests to clear lands for cows and shit.
Miners clear forests to build ore extraction facilities.
Lumber exporters cut the trees to export lumber.
This was a big issue even back in 2016 before bonehead bolsonaro was elected. They set a date for 2030 to have the country put a stop to illegal deforestations, but when bolsonaro took over, that plan went out the window. You can read a little bit about it at Greenpeace here.

Bolsonaro blamed NGOs (non governmental organizations) for setting fire to the Amazon, but that’s complete BS. It’s his own people lighting the fires. Everybody knows bolsonaro paid a king’s ransome in lip service to Israel already, and so that’s why it’s extremely unlikely to be the work of NGOs.
The Amazon is regarded as vital in the fight against global warming due to its ability to absorb carbon from the air. It’s often referred to as the “lungs of the Earth,” as more than 20 per cent of the world’s oxygen is produced there.

Germany and Norway have stopped giving Brazil any money, but that isn’t going far enough. You could say that the Amazon rainforest is just one forest out of many, but where does it stop? You clear one forest, and that sets a precedent for other countries to do the same.
Brazil’s top 10 exports in 2018 were all related to resources extracted from the Amazon. All except for vehicles and machinery, but you could argue that even vehicles and machinery require ores, which come from ore deposits inside the Amazon.
Oil seeds: US$33.5 billion (14% of total exports)
Mineral fuels including oil: $29.7 billion (12.4%)
Ores, slag, ash: $23.7 billion (9.9%)
Machinery including computers: $14.8 billion (6.2%)
Meat: $13.3 billion (5.5%)
Vehicles: $12.7 billion (5.3%)
Iron, steel: $11.8 billion (4.9%)
Woodpulp: $8.4 billion (3.5%)
Food industry waste, animal fodder: $7.2 billion (3%)
Sugar, sugar confectionery: $6.7 billion (2.8%)
Overall, Brazil achieved a $58.7 billion trade surplus during 2018 down by -12.5% from its $67 billion positive trade balance in 2017

So even bolsonaro’s excuse of supposedly rescuing Brazil’s economy from a dire situation is bullshit. Everybody knows that it’s the politicians stealing from the poor.
Meanwhile the planet gets hotter and hotter.
