The fires in the Amazon this year (2019) are nothing exceptional (2004 was like peak deforestation and we're down like 80% from then), and most of it is farm land and not forest that's being burned. (Normal crop burns, with a few getting a little out of control). But CNN and Hollywood got to use the Global Warming scare mongering, often using old photos from back in 2004, or even this was Trump's fault: seriously (idiots). It's a catastrophe don't you know? "Over 20% of the world's Oxygen comes from there. We need to fix this NOW" For those with a clue? They're idiots. If we burned the entire biomass of the earth less than 1% of the world’s oxygen would be consumed... most of our oxygen is collected over millions of years, most of the rest comes from water based photosynthesis, and we don't need to worry about a lack of Oxygen. So this is just this years chicken-little alar or Ozone hole scare.
A friend had an exchange with the Lead Singer of Toto, who was freaking out over the Amazon Forest Fires, that are really just crop-burns. My friends explains it as, "Twitter is awesome. Growing up, I never thought I'd be able to clown the lead guitarist and singer of Toto and have him reply back with the C-word in all caps, then block me. Life has exceeded my expectations."
It became relevant for me when a long time friend of mine had a twitter exchange with the lead singer of Toto. My friends comments: “Twitter is awesome. Growing up, I never thought I'd be able to clown the lead guitarist and singer of Toto and have him reply back with the C-word in all caps, then block me. Life has exceeded my expectations.”
