Amazon Forest on Fire!

Some will take time away from navel gazing to observe that there is a fire raging in the Amazon forest.

Some of us fondly remember all those years ago studying that tropical rain forest  in geography classe.

The blogmaster – if he could – would like to know how many Barbadians- adults and children- understand the effect this fire is wrecking on the global ecosystem of which Barbados is a part.

Macron Calls on G7 Countries to Discuss Amazon Forest in Summit

French President Emmanuel Macron is calling on G7 countries to discuss what he described as an emergency in the Amazon rainforest.

In a tweet, Macron said the issue should top the list of topics on the agenda of a summit scheduled to start this weekend.Brazil’s policy toward the Amazon has been under scrutiny over the past few days as data from the country’s National Institute of Space Research show an 84% year-on-year increase in forest fires in 2019.

  • In the past few years many indigenous tribesmen from the Amazon basin have been killed or forced to relocate from traditional lands because ranchers and loggers wanted the land to expand grazing for cattle or for logging operations. Now, we have President Bolsanaro (a Trump clone, notice that the US Gov’t hasn’t made any official statement about the fires) who has been providing subtle encouragement to the ranching fraternity to expand their grazing ranges and they have responded with arson. After severe criticism from some European leaders he has now moved to send the military to combat the flames but not before he condemned them as being colonials.

    Soon we may be using the words “I can’t breathe” in a different context

    Someone once said words to the effect that “mankind is the only creature with the ability and the means to destroy itself”.

  • This will impact our weather in some way form or fashion and perhaps even fisheries depending on tidal drift, particulate levels and severity. Expect hotter days as these clouds trap heat and carbon sequestration is impacted. Many could care less about these fires.

  • A little knowledge can be dangerous.

    Back in the 1960s, some climatologists developed predictive models of climate change that were meant to spur discussions among scholars about the POSSIBILITY that ongoing changes in world climates could eventually threaten global civilization.

    The models were, and still are, based on limited historical data and are highly speculative. But in the ensuing decades they have attracted more and more attention from political activists and professional politicians.

    Like a spreading rumour, the model-based predictions have been exaggerated and distorted, sometimes by climate scientists themselves, many of whom have been corrupted by the fame and generous research funding available to those who offer the most extreme predictions.

    Today, every schoolboy is convinced that climate change is a man-made phenomenon; that the use of fossil fuels in industrial activities must be drastically curtailed or radically modified to prevent catastrophic changes in world climates; and even that the Amazon river basin MUST remain under forest cover to prevent further increases of carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere (because these increases are blamed for undesirable global warming.)

    Predictive models are usually wrong. The only question is by how much. Not only does the underlying climate science not support some of the more outlandish claims of the climate activists, but politicians of all stripes are using climate propaganda to promote self-serving agendas.

    QUESTION
    If the G-7 nations (or their colonial satellites in the Caribbean) want Brazil to limit its economic growth and development by restricting forest-clearing agricultural and mining activities in the Amazon, how much compensation are they prepared to offer the Brazilian government?

  • When I did geography at a A -level ,I read the book “Tropical World” by Pierre Gourou. It dealt at length with the environmental impact of Amazonia on the regulation of the world’s climate. One thing I have always remembered is the fact of the delicate balance between poor soils and the verdant foliage found in Amazonia. The soils under the forest canopy are poor in nutrients due to the heavy rainfall and high ambient temperatures. The latter results in rapid microbial breakdown of the accumulated forest floor litter into nutrients available for plant use. However, the high rainfall although cushioned to some extent by the canopy ( canopy exist at three different levels) is still enough to result in leaching of soluble nutrients into bed-pan( bed-rock from which soils are made) of the soil profile. Removable of the forest results in severe soil erosion that ultimately affects the climate of the area. The earth is a self-regulatory according to the Gaia hypothesis and is in a finely tuned state of balance. Disruption of any of its parameters result in problems.

  • MACRON IS A GLOBALIST ELITIST ALARMIST…. “THE COMMUNIST /SOCIALIST MOTTO IS NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE”. THE AMAZON FIRES IS THEIR WAY TO HOOK THE U.S. BACK INTO THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD…

    Ewart Archer August 25, 2019 12:13 AM IS Bang On!!

    The Trump administration has sought to increase fossil fuel use and scrap many environmental regulations, which he has referred to as impediments to business. Trump has pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord, leaving the U.S. the only nation that has not joined the agreement.

    Trump campaigned on a pledge to roll back government regulations, and within days of taking office he began to implement his “America First Energy Plan”, which does not mention renewable energy. He signed executive orders to approve two controversial oil pipelines and executive orders requiring a federal review of the Clean Water Rule and the Clean Power Plan. Trump called for more drilling in national parks and announced plans to open up more federal land for energy development.

    During a July 8, 2019 White House speech, Trump hailed “America’s environmental leadership” on his watch, asserting his administration was “being good stewards of our public land,” reducing carbon emissions and promoting the “cleanest air” and “crystal clean” water.

    AUSTRALIA PM ADVISER SAYS CLIMATE CHANGE IS ‘UN-LED RUSE TO ESTABLISH NEW WORLD ORDER’

    Tony Abbott’s business adviser says global warming a fallacy supported by United Nations to ‘create a new authoritarian world order under its control’

    Climate change is a hoax developed as part of a secret plot by the United Nations to undermine democracies and takeover the world, a top adviser to Tony Abbott, Australia’s prime minister, has warned.

    Maurice Newman, the chief business adviser to the prime minister, said the science showing links between human activity and the warming climate was wrong but was being used as a “hook” by the UN to expand its global control.

    “THIS IS NOT ABOUT FACTS OR LOGIC. IT’S ABOUT A NEW WORLD ORDER UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE UN,” he wrote in The Australian.

    “IT IS OPPOSED TO CAPITALISM AND FREEDOM AND HAS MADE ENVIRONMENTAL CATASTROPHISM A HOUSEHOLD TOPIC TO ACHIEVE ITS OBJECTIVE.”

    “CARBON DIOXIDE — THE MIRACLE OF FOOD

    What is food? The essential materials for life are food, water and oxygen. Of the three, food is required in the largest quantity. Almost all food is carbon dioxide, either consumed directly by plants, or indirectly when animals and humans consume plants.

    We do not think of ourselves as subsisting almost entirely on carbon dioxide — we eat meat, fruits and vegetables. But the animals we eat grew and lived on plants, typically grass. Likewise, fruits and vegetables are plants, as are the trees that cover the earth. And plants consume almost entirely carbon dioxide for food.

    It is true that humans, animals and plants require very small quantities of other essential material. We call ours vitamins and minerals. We call what the plants need nutrients or fertilizer. But while these materials are important, the quantities required are insignificant to life, compare to the carbon dioxide. So it is fair to say that the food used by all living things, to grow and to live, is carbon dioxide.

    People are incredibly ignorant of this fundamental fact — that food is carbon dioxide. The reason is that it has not been important until now. We do not consume carbon dioxide directly, do not go to the store and get. And, more importantly, when we grow plants we do not provide the carbon dioxide they consume. They take it out of the air. The food is free!

    We may work very hard to provide the water and the nutrients the plants need, as well as sunlight and protection from extreme temperature, but the food is free and we have nothing to do with providing it. So for millions of years people have grown and consumed plants and animals without knowing what they were eating. This fundamental fact was only discovered in modern times, and we still don’t understand the process very well. Even today, most people have no idea that their food, and the food all the plants and animals that cover the earth, is carbon dioxide.

    But the existence of food at all is a miracle. Carbon dioxide is not abundant in the air. In fact it is very rare. Only about one molecule in 3000 in the air is carbon dioxide. So the billions of people on earth, plus the untold trillions or quadrillions of plants and animals, are all growing and living on a rare gas. That is the miracle of food”.

    Environmentalists are Communists…YES THEY ARE!

    In 3 Months 500 Million Bees Have Died In Brazil

    By Mayukh Saha / Truth Theory

    Death came rapidly for Aldo Machado’s honeybees and within 24 hours of the first signs of sickness among the Apis mellifera, tens of thousands lay dead, their bodies piled in mounds.

    The vice president of Rio Grande do Sul beekeeping association was shocked to discover the dead bees. Pesticides killed around half a million bees in Brazil in three months, say researchers at Bloomberg. Pesticide use has increased by 770% between 1990 and 2016.

    Of all insects, bees are the most effective and practical method for crop pollination. They can be reared in sufficient numbers and placed wherever and whenever they are required for effective pollination. It has been found that the use of hive bees results in a manifold increase in yields and improvement in the quality of produce.

    Agriculture is the mainstay of the Brazilian economy, almost 18% of it. The group that controls agriculture is the most powerful and influential in the country and controls everything from culture to politics. The present president was elected with their support and has kept his promise to make this their government. This has, in turn, given them blanket permission to spray any amount of chemicals for higher production.

    Brazil has seen a 150% increase of insecticide use between 2000 and 2015 against a minuscule increase of 8.1% expansion of the agricultural area.

  • NASA scientists say that alarm over Amazon forest fires is overblown. Forest fires are normal this time of year and not really significantly worse than average.

    NASA, scientists crush climate change hysteria around Amazon fires — here’s the truth<./strong>

    …….the panic appears to be completely overblown.
    According to NASA, fires are common in the Amazon due to the arrival of a dry season in July. Fire activity typically peaks in September before ending in November.

    And even though fires are common, NASA analysis shows that current fire activity is at or below average.

    As of August 16, 2019, an analysis of NASA satellite data indicated that total fire activity across the Amazon basin this year has been close to the average in comparison to the past 15 years. (The Amazon spreads across Brazil, Peru, Colombia, and parts of other countries.)

    Though activity appears to be above average in the states of Amazonas and Rondônia, it has so far appeared below average in Mato Grosso and Pará, according to estimates from the Global Fire Emissions Database, a research project that compiles and analyzes NASA data.

    Still, although large wildfires are concerning, the claim that the Amazon is responsible for producing 20 percent of the world’s usable oxygen is simply not true, despite being commonly cited to intensify hysteria.

  • Climate change hoax collapses as Michael Mann’s bogus “hockey stick” graph defamation lawsuit dismissed by the Supreme Court of British Columbia

    (Natural News) For the past two decades, much of the hysteria about global warming — later re-labeled “climate change” — has been based on the so-called “hockey stick” graph produced by Michael Mann. The graph, shown below, has been used by the IPCC, the media and governments to push global warming hysteria to the point of mass mental illness, where Democrat presidential candidates claim humanity only has 12 years remaining before a climate apocalypse will somehow destroy the planet.

    But the hockey stick graph is a fraud. A man-made computer software algorithm generated it, and the algorithm is rigged to produce a hockey stick shape no matter what data were entered. Like everything else found in the rigged world of “climate science,” the hockey stick graph was a fraud the day it was generated.

    Michael Mann didn’t like being called a fraud by his critics, so he sued them for defamation. And late last week, one of those lawsuits was concluded by the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada, which threw our Mann’s lawsuit against Dr. Tim Ball. But there’s more. According to Principia-Scientific:

    Not only did the court grant Ball’s application for dismissal of the nine-year, multi-million dollar lawsuit, it also took the additional step of awarding full legal costs to Ball. A detailed public statement from the world-renowned skeptical climatologist is expected in due course.

    This extraordinary outcome is expected to trigger severe legal repercussions for Dr Mann in the U.S. and may prove fatal to climate science claims that modern temperatures are “unprecedented.”

  • Bolsonaro Greenlights New Pesticides Even as Advocates Mourn Half Billion Dead Bees in Brazil

    Brazil now has 2,300 pesticides registered for use—and the rate of new pesticide authorizations under the Bolsonaro government is unprecedented, according to Mongabay.

    The current authorization rate is the highest ever recorded by the Ministry of Agriculture (MAPA) since the agency began releasing data in 2005. In comparison to the 290 pesticides approved in the first seven months of 2019, just 45 were approved over the same period during 2010. This June and July alone, MAPA published registrations for 93 new pesticides in the Official Gazette.

    “In addition to the new products, a new regulatory framework to assess pesticide health risks was established in July that will reduce restrictiveness of toxicological classifications,” explained Mongabay. “Under Bolsonaro, 1,942 registered pesticides were quickly reevaluated, with the number considered extremely toxic dropped from 702 to just 43.”

    Despite recent reevaluations, Bloomberg reported, “about 40 percent of Brazil’s pesticides are ‘highly or extremely toxic,’ according to Greenpeace, and 32 percent aren’t allowed in the European Union. Meanwhile, approvals are being expedited without the government hiring enough people to evaluate them, said Marina Lacorte, a coordinator at Greenpeace Brazil.”

    Given those figures, Victor Pelaez—coordinator for the Observatory of the Pesticide Industry at the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) in Brazil—said in an interview with Mongabay, “How do these authorizations address a concern for the health of the population and the environment?”

    Pelaez also blasted the Brazilian agribusiness industry for its practice of abundantly applying pesticides.

    “Instead of assessing the level of insect infestation in a crop and then doing corrective work, they act preventively and apply pesticides in an indiscriminate way. It is like trying to prevent a cancer that you don’t have,” he said. “They don’t need to keep monitoring the crop, which is much cheaper. It’s an agriculture characterized by saturation, not precision.”

    With so many poor countries in the developing world, how are they going to achieve any level of prosperity and developmental if every project they embark on is seen from an optics of climate change? Is this a conspiracy by certain special interest group in rich countries to keep countries poor and undeveloped so as to rule over them with ODA (AID) assistance.?

    Remember when they had oil coming out of the well head in the Gulf and it was so many hundreds of Barrels per day and Obama refused the help to contain the oil leak because he wanted the Crisis to continue as all as all Leftist do that do not want a Crisis to go to waste. In a very short time, the oil disappeared and it has been happening all the time that oil leaks from the ocean floor and the earth heals itself, much like the Pitch Lake in Trinidad is on the earth’s surface.

    In the Brazils Presidents has taken an active Role in Deploying the Army to stop the fires, because he feels it is being Sabotaged and yet Leftist all over the world is making noise because they do not want anybody who is like-minded like President Trump. They cannot take Straightforwardness they prefer Lies, Deception, and sounding Virtuous at the same time.

    One of Brazil’s leading environmental journalists agrees that media coverage of the fires has been misleading. “It was under [Workers Party President] Lula and [Environment Secretary] Marina Silva (2003-2008) that Brazil had the highest incidence of burning,” Leonardo Coutinho told me over email. “But neither Lula nor Marina was accused of putting the Amazon at risk.”

    Coutinho’s perspective was shaped by reporting on the ground in the Amazon for Veja, Brazil’s leading news magazine, for nearly a decade. By contrast, many of the correspondents reporting on the fires have been doing so from the cosmopolitan cities of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, which are 2,500 miles and four hours by jet plane away.

    “What is happening in the Amazon is not exceptional,” said Coutinho. “Take a look at Google web searches search for ‘Amazon’ and ‘Amazon Forest’ over time. Global public opinion was not as interested in the ‘Amazon tragedy’ when the situation was undeniably worse. The present moment does not justify global hysteria.”

    And while fires in Brazil have increased, there is no evidence that Amazon forest fires have.
