Nero played his harp while Rome burned. Lunatic psychopath cared nothing for his people. Modern day psychopath, heavily in the pants of US Empire laughs as the Amazon burns. Rome was an empire dying, the Amazon is the single largest part of the global lungs. Empires come and go, yet our existence on this blue marble is as fragile as puncturing our lungs.
Where are the global warming adherents? Where are the billionaires who offered to rebuild the great Notre Dame? Where is the sanity needed to keep us all in existence?
The answer is nowhere.
No MSM shouting Action! The lunatic President of Brazil, Bolsonaro blames the NGOs for starting these fires. You could not make this rubbish up.
Frankly, the rising tide of opinion that the current fire decimating the Amazon rainforest is NOT an accident but a purposeful act of ecocide, burning fauna and flora to make space for animal agriculture and ranching, sounds horrendous yet shockingly true.
In Brazil, cattle farmers start fires deliberately to clear forest to make way for ranching, and it’s not always legal. Bolsonaro backs these sorts of actions through silent assent and swift nods of compliance.
In Mato Grosso and Para, where Brazil’s agricultural frontier has expanded and pushed into the forest basin, more deforestation has been recorded and wildfires have increased.
The World Wildlife Fund estimates more than a quarter of the Amazon will be without trees by 2030 if the current rate of deforestation continues. This by itself will fit neatly into the Agenda 21 plans, thus no real cry from the MSM, no shock horror from those crying over Parisian cathedrals!
When you stop truth telling, when you hold your voice and breath when travesty is committed, then lungs become very susceptible to disease and ill health. When you allow the burning of the world’s lungs it becomes terminal for the Few as well as for the Many. Yet it is the Many that suffer first and foremost, while the Few think they are immune.
Indigenous tribes, the treasure of our world and our ancient wisdom, are wiped out with little or no comprehension of the loss such genocide creates.
Can you really imagine a greater, more horrific metaphor for the horrors of what we pass off as civilised life?
We ignore all this at our imminent peril, although too many are willing to pass on understanding this travesty. It looks like Extinction Rebellion and the little girl in a sailing boat on the Atlantic are too self obsessed with their virtue signalling to care for real extinction.
