The Amazon Rainforest fire is being called
the worst environmental disaster in history. But this environmental disaster was caused
by humans, humans who are illegally setting fires to the forest to make way for cattle
ranching. I’m about to serve you this update, right
now on IO. Welcome back to informoverload, where we overload
you with information. I’m charlotte dobre, and normally our videos
are pretty lighthearted, we like to make jokes, we like to have fun, but there is absolutely
nothing funny about whats going on in the amazon rainforest right now. Subscribe for trending news updates that are
actually interesting and follow the IO team on instagram and twitter. On Tuesday, the skies of sao paolo went completely
dark in the middle of the day. It wasn’t due to a solar eclipse, the sky
went dark because of the thick blanket of smoke that almost entirely blocked out the
sun. If you havent seen our previous coverage on
this topic, check out the video that’s currently clickable on your screen. But basically, the amazon is burning at a
record rate, the smoke from the blazes can be seen from space. The smoke has covered nearby cities in a thick
dark haze. In the past week alone, 9 thousand fires have
been spotted out of the 72 thousand that have been reported this year. According to Thomas Lovejoy ecologist and
national geographic explorer, this is without any question one of only two times that there
have been fires like this. He also said, there is no question that it’s
a consequence of the recent uptick in deforestation. The amazon rainforest is often called the
lungs of the planet, and experts are saying that the fires could have huge climate impacts. Many critics are blaming this disaster on
far right Brazilian president jair bolsonaro, who’s done his best to deregulate the amazon
and open it up for the agriculture business, mining and logging. Since he was elected in 2018, environmentalists
have been warning of the consequences of deforestation. In 2019 alone, brazil lost more than 13 hundred
square miles of forest cover. According to data released by the INPE released
this month, more forest has been cleared in brazil in this past summer alone than in the
last 3 years combined, and the summer isn’t even over yet. This isn’t entirely the president of brazils
fault, a lot of his supporters wanted to open up the amazon for business. The agriculture industry is huge in brazil,
and so are the logging and mining industries. Amazon trees are cleared away to make way
for soy plants or cattle pastures. And fire, the slash and burn technique, is
used to clear forest quickly and cheaply. But just like what happens when wildfires
are started in California, a large chunk of these fires spiral out of control. The rainforest makes its own rain. Half of its own rain to be exact. Cut down the rainforest, the rain will not
fall, the land will be dryer and much more susceptible to fires. Jair Bolsonaro has responded to the massive
uproar of criticism. He responded quite defensively. And he thinks that the fires in brazil were
started by non Government organizations who want to weaken his administration and brazil’s
image. When he responded to a reporters question,
Who do could be responsible for starting the fires, he said, the Indians, do you want me
to blame the Indians, do you want me to blame the martians. Show the screenshots editors. He went on, There are strong indications that
people from NGO’s Lost the money. He did not provide any proof. President bolsonaro also blamed a lack of
funding. He said I quote, there aren’t the resources. The chaos has arrived. That is all I have for you on this one, for
now I’m going to respond to some of your questions and concerns from my video, the
top 10 scary things that will happen if amazon burns down. Zelda the vampire cat – we need to do something
asap. It really needs to rain asap. Basic zachh – my yearly dose of anxiety
in one video. never thought it would happen. Batmanfanforever – why do I have the feeling
that in the future we’re gonna have to reterraform the earth. I mean, you might be right about that one.

Idk how anyone could think tht global warming isn't real, and I'm just a normal everyday person. In other words, I'm actually thinking about changing my diet, life, etc. Again, I'm really being serious. 20% of earth's oxygen is allot considering our atmosphere only contains about 70% oxygen.

    "There aren't enough resources" ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Every single 'elite' piece of shit on this planet should be contributing to controlling these fires. Fly your personal jets out there, part with a small percentage of your BILLIONS of dollars (aka RESOURCES). WHO HAS THE RESOURCES??? NOT THE POOR PEOPLE, IT'S THE PEOPLE WHO KEEP TAKING EVERYTHING THIS PLANET HAS AND DESTROYING IT WITHOUT HESITATION. What a HUGE crock of shit. They're so wealthy, they don't even realize that they ALSO live on this planet and that they NEED an ecosystem to keep their greedy lifestyle going. AND FARMING FOR CATTLE AND AGRICULTURE?? Why don't you take your head out of your ass and take a look at how that's worked out all across the globe!?! SURE, kill tons of plants and animals and natural ecosystems so you can mass produce animals for butcher and their waste can destroy drinking water and create more disease. HOW ARE THESE PEOPLE STILL ALLOWED TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE WORLD!?!?!? They don't belong here, or WE don't belong here living in their sick, fucked up world that they're creating (and destroying).
