Yes, there is some small part of the forest being burned, but that practice has been greatly curtailed over the past few years. In fact, it has nearly been cut by 2/3….
Even the NY Times has pointed this out: “Much of the land that is burning was not old-growth rain forest, but land that had already been cleared of trees and set for agricultural use.”
Odd how that isn’t the message that most of the media is putting out. Why aren’t they telling the truth?
Why the lies….And what is the purpose of the media campaign?
And I have a simple solution: if they don’t want the rain forest burned, then people should buy it….Yep, buy an acre. Make it into a park, or a preserve, or whatever. BUT don’t tell other people what to do with land that is not yours. Pay them for the land, then You, as the owner, can determine what happens to the land.
Until then, shut the hell up
