More on those horrendous Amazon forest fires

So much more awful than ever before, fueled by wood Bolsenaro’s policies and utterly cataclysmic for what’s left of the environment.

Or… er… pretty much the same as the last decade and a half.

As of August 16, 2019, an analysis of NASA satellite data indicated that total fire activity across the Amazon basin this year has been close to the average in comparison to the past 15 years. (The Amazon spreads across Brazil, Peru, Colombia, and parts of other countries.) Though activity appears to be above average in the states of Amazonas and Rondônia, it has so far appeared below average in Mato Grosso and Pará, according to estimates from the Global Fire Emissions Database, a research project that compiles and analyzes NASA data.

It’s blatant hyperbole.


Once more for those at the back, I’m not saying that the fires are a good thing, or that we shouldn’t be concerned at the damage they are doing. I’m merely saying that what the green-leaning environMENTAList media are telling us isn’t exactly the gospel truth. The fires they should be more anxious about are the ones in their pants.
