A feedback loop in which the forest begins to dry and burn in a cascading system collapse.
So the government is going to reverse climate change but can't even put out a fire.

Really? Die hard Trumpists are just unwilling to tell the truth even to themselves. They would rather die. I would not be surprised if Trump dies from the anxiety that he has brought upon himself. He lays his own traps and then gets caught in them.

When the USA sent a car to China, it was a 25% tariff was slapped on that item. A car coming to the USA had about 3%. Yes, we were in a trade war long before Trump, you were just asleep. And a whole lot of other people were getting too rich to care what happened to America or it's once thriving middle class and industrial might.

The US has its own state orchestrated environmental sins to account for, not to mention 18 years of war. What do you suppose the carbon footprint is of the US military with its troops,equipment and bases all over the planet earth? You voted for all of it.
Stop with phony outrage and concern over what other countries do, mind your own beeswax at home and abroad.

And here we have the chilling sound of common sense. You will be vilified for it, but that would and should be considered an honor.

The SJW's would likely promote a us military invasion of Brazil and demand that we send all of our fire fighters to Brazil to put out the fires.. How to pay for this? Tax someone of course. Just not them.

It’s been going on for years in other parts of the world. Clearing jungle for farmland. In Singapore for instance, a small island nation North of Indonesia the pollution from burning away Indonesian jungle has created health hazards so bad that visibility is often reduced and people are forced to wear face masks.
