According to the BBC, the increase in the number of fires in the Amazon jungle correlates to the sharp decline in fines for environmental violations.

The solution is obvious then

There are no fires in the Amazon Jungle. They are very very rare.
The land on fire is set a fire every year, by the farmers that own the land adjacent to the jungles. These lands have been cleared for decades if not over a century.


Just like the Mexicans burn their dry fields every year after harvest. The smoke can be seen from satellites and causes smog in Texas.




The media is lying to us to run the narrative for the global warming bandwagon

Read an article about this in the atlantic.

Most of the oxygen is under the earth in fossil fuels and mud rocks/ rare earth deposits.

Your article claims to use Dr. Dan Nepstad as an expert source. Here is an article actually written by him that contradicts much of what is in that Forbes article. https://www.ecosystemmarketplace.com...hat-we-can-do/

I see no contradictions. Here is what he said in your link;

"What we know about the current Amazon fire emergency is that in 2019, from January 1st through August 31st, there have been about 7% more fires in Brazilian Amazon states than average since 2010 (see graph)."

And the fire count graph in the Forbes article is the same as in your link.

Well guess the President of Brazil had a change of heart .....

The Business Insider link posted on the Yahoo homepage. Guess fake.

https://news.yahoo.com/brazils-presi...095324292.html

From link:
- Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has appeared to backtrack on his refusal of $20 million in G7 aid to help fight the Amazon fires, saying he'll consider accepting the money on one condition.

- Bolsonaro, who is locked in a war of words with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, wants Macron to apologize to him for calling him rude earlier this week.

* Guess we can SPIN this to he just wants the money now.

even factcheck.org chimes in:

Amazon Doesn’t Produce 20% of Earth’s Oxygen

Q: Does the Amazon produce 20% of the world’s oxygen?

A: No. Scientists estimate the percentage is closer to 6 to 9%, and the Amazon ultimately consumes nearly all of that oxygen itself.
