@negativiq @Signnamehere1 Look: its not great, no. Its a bad year. BUT STOP PANICKING JUST BECAUSE MEDIA TELLS YOU TO! Amazon used to lose this amount EVERY MONTH, its not been this bad for ten years, true, but its not the end of the world. Nor is this driven by climate change, climate is NORMAL (cont)
@negativiq @Signnamehere1 Now the current government has changed priorities and does want economic growth. Easy for the privileged West to tell Brazil it has to martyr itself for the planet. But this is not politics, its PEOPLE, doing what people do, stupid, shortsighted, maybe, but people (cont)
@negativiq @Signnamehere1 Those people are responding to pressures based on their economy: true. Humans have screwed up their environment because of their economy many times, look at why the Aztec or Roman civilisations suffered collapse (cont)
@negativiq @Signnamehere1 Humanity as a whole is in the position it is today because of TECHNOLOGY. Without technology, the world population would not have grown from 1 billion to over 7, without technology, 30% of the people reading this would be dead by age 30 (cont)
@negativiq @Signnamehere1 And it is with TECHNOLOGY humans will change the equation yet again and change the behaviour that currently isn't helping the Amazon out so much. NOT Carbon credits, not taxes, but TECHNOLOGY (cont)
@negativiq @Signnamehere1 OR: it wont! In which case nature will correct US, as she has corrected US many times before, and maybe bust US back down to 1 billion or less. And do you know how much the Planet will care?
NOT AT ALL (cont)
@negativiq @Signnamehere1 On that basis, DONT play politics and demonise brazil's government, support sensible effective action to help the current situation, get some appreciation for man's true position on this planet, and the challenges of the future, and keep CALM HEADS
