and quoting Big Oil doesn't make you an expert on climate. Big Oil has spent tens of millions to convince the yahoos that climate change is a hoax so they can continue to pollute the planet with impunity and the yahoos quote them all the time.

It's as if they publish and distribute a script for social media posting.

Brazil has seen 100,000 fire alerts in 10 days, but it's not just the Amazon — one map shows how much of South America is burning

The Brazilian Amazon is burning at a record rate: Brazil has experienced more than 76,000 fires this year, whereas last year's total was about 40,000. About 10,000 of this year's fires have started in the past couple of weeks.



The fires in Brazil aren't natural disasters: Environmentalists and researchers say humans are to blame.
"The important thing to know about the Amazon is that few fires occur there naturally," Mikaela Weisse, who tracks deforestation and fires for the World Resources Institute, told Vice.
About 99% of Amazon fires start from human actions, "either on purpose or by accident," Alberto Setzer, a senior scientist at Brazil's National Institute for Space Research (INPE), told CNN. Setzer said farmers often set the forest ablaze to clear land for agriculture.

Fake news! Fake news!

Random internet climate expert said that somebody started "a fire" and that somebody should put it out.

But it hasn't anything to do with climate change.

How come the southern hemisphere is on fire? It's winter down there.

Exactly! Winter in the Tropics isn't feet of snow but equates to the dry season. Zooming in on Indonesia looks horrible for fires as bad or worse as South America and Africa looks nasty too.

I wonder how many of those fires are campfires! 90%?

Yeah. Hundred miles wide campfires.

Do you have any idea how much of the Earth"s surface you're looking at? You can't see campfires at that scale ... or buildings, or people or roads or towns or trees or hills. All of those things are much, much smaller than one pixel. You are looking 10 to 12 million square kilometers in that image. That's bigger than Canada. A big nuclear explosion would look like a campfire (truly!) if you managed to take the snap at just the right instant.


P.S. those lines you see between all those countries are not really there. They are projected on the satellite image by computer.

Fcuk- there is technology now capable of picking up the heat emitted from one squirrel in the bush! Pete can likely confirm that!

Get a brain transplant, will you

YOU ARE LOOKING AT AN AREA THAT IS BIGGER THAN ALL OF CANADA

Sure Ask Pete ...if you can get him sober. He a expert at all manner of fiction.

I just did a little math which really proves you ARE a fcuking idiot! Brazil has 74,000 fires over the past week or so. Brazil has 4.4 million farms. So 1 in every 60 farms maximum has had a fire of some description. Undoubtedly some of the fires weren't located on farms so the number is likely much less than one in 60. If you don't believe me, check with Pete. BTW Brazil has a much smaller area than Canada which has nothing to do with the area that is burning. Anyway some of those fires are campfire size. Check with Pete.

I should have put the first line in purple. I was being sarcastic. The fires in Brazil are human made but the rest of the world, particularly Siberia, are climate caused. The whole freaking world is on fire and people are arguing about who or what is responsible. We all are: our lifestyles, our mindless consumerism, our greed...


I really think that Earth would be better off without us.

NO- the vast majority of the fires on the planet (or at least in Canada and the U.S.) are Idiot caused. Hot dry weather very seldom causes fires, just exacerbates them AFTER they get started!

What lifestyle do I have that starts fires? I walk a lot and I've yet to see a fire starting in my path! My vehicles don't emit sparks!

Pete will denigrate anyone, any time for any reason.

It's called "swaggering arrogance".

It's very strange but he's never subjected me to it. I can see how you'd be involved, just by the way you treated pgs right off the bat by being an asshole!
