Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rain forest – the lungs which produces 20% of our planet’s oxygen – is on fire. It is an international crisis. Members of the G7 Summit, let's discuss this emergency first order in two days! #ActForTheAmazon pic.twitter.com/dogOJj9big

What is he even saying there?
Is he suggesting Brazil should get a visit from Freedom and Democracy™?
He didn’t say anything about “our house” when news about the California wildfires were hot. Now he’s talking about an international crisis, people running out of oxygen, and calling for the G7 summit to focus on the topic.
Amid global concern about raging fires in the Amazon, Brazil’s government complained Thursday that it is being targeted in smear campaign by critics who contend President Jair Bolsonaro is not doing enough to curb widespread deforestation.
The threat to what some call “the lungs of the planet” has ignited a bitter dispute about who is to blame during the tenure of a leader who has described Brazil’s rainforest protections as an obstacle to economic development and who traded Twitter jabs on Thursday with France’s president over the fires.
French President Emmanuel Macron called the wildfires an international crisis and said the leaders of the Group of 7 nations should hold urgent discussions about them at their summit in France this weekend.
“Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rain forest — the lungs which produces 20% of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire,” Macron tweeted.
Bolsonaro fired back with his own tweet: “I regret that Macron seeks to make personal political gains in an internal matter for Brazil and other Amazonian countries. The sensationalist tone he used does nothing to solve the problem.”
U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres tweeted: “In the midst of the global climate crisis, we cannot afford more damage to a major source of oxygen and biodiversity. The Amazon must be protected.”
Federal prosecutors in Brazil’s Amazon region launched investigations of increasing deforestation, according to local media. Prosecutors said they plan to probe possible negligence by the national government in the enforcement of environmental codes.
Bolivia is also struggling to contain big fires, many believed to have been set by farmers clearing land for cultivation.
Bolsonaro said there was a “very strong” indication that some non-governmental groups could be setting blazes in retaliation for losing state funds under his administration. He did not provide any evidence.
London-based Amnesty International blamed the Brazilian government for the fires, which have escalated international concern over the vast rainforest that is a major absorber of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Bolsonaro may be onto something there. This whole thing could be a manufactured move intended to be exploited by the groups that appear to be exploiting it right now.
These media spectacles are just so convenient, you know? Makes one wonder just how powerful coincidences are.
Brazil contains about 60 percent of the Amazon rainforest, whose degradation could have severe consequences for global climate and rainfall. Bolsonaro, who has said he wants to convert land for cattle pastures and soybean farms, won office after channeling outrage over the corruption scandals of the former government.
Sergio Bergman, Argentina’s environment minister, appealed for people to overcome political or ideological divisions to protect the environment. He spoke at a five-day U.N. workshop on climate change in Brazil’s northern state of Bahia.
Sergio Bergman also just so happens to be a rabbi.
The Jews love this “diversity is a strength so we must overcome our differences and unite under a common banner for our survival” plan.
Here’s a rough outline of how it works:
- Make goyim believe diversity is a strength
- Inundate goyim countries with very different groups
- Foment hate between groups
- Invent a “bigger than us” kind of threat
- Tell the goyim that the solution to this chaos and the only way to survive is to leave differences behind and unite
This “bigger than us” threat can be anything. Climate Apocalypse, alien invasions, anything goes.
It’s a slightly more complex version of “create a problem, sell the solution.”
Of course, if people ever unite to fight one of these “threats,” it will only make managing the goyim farm easier for them.
You don’t want to burn to death in the Climate Apocalypse that you caused by not being vegan, brown and poor, don’t you?
Then follow my lead.
