Expansion of agriculture for soy and cattle comes at the cost of clearing the Amazon of its rainforest, one of the Earth's most biodiverse and carbon-sequestering rich regions. Brazil's president Jair Bolsonaro rejected an offer of $22M USD from the G7 nations to assist with fighting the forest fires currently ravaging Brazil's Amazon. Conniving ideas aren't unusual for Bolsonaro - he's made claims that global warming doesn't exist and that these fires have been started by environmentalists - so his turning down assistance during a crisis is not a big surprise. Forest fires in the Amazon rainforest have increased 77% over last year, according to satellite images from Brazil's National Institute for Space Research (INPE). This number comes at a time when the dry season is only now beginning and will continue on into November for parts of the Amazon. Bolsonaro has put an emphasis on rapid development of the Amazon an the fires this year are a sadly predictable result of this policy shift. #prayforamazonas #ilcp_photographers #mindshift #greenpeace #catherineedelmangallery #blueearthphoto #greenpeacebrazil #amazonrainforest #aerial #rainforest #amazon #smoke #amazonfire #brazil #greenpeacebrasil #everydayclimatechange #climatechangeisreal #climatechange #globalwarming #leonardodicaprio A post shared by Daniel Beltra (@danielbeltraphoto) on Aug 27, 2019 at 1:46pm PDT\nRAINFOREST FEST\nWhat: A dance party in support of Rainforest Trust\nWhere: Auberge Le Saint-Gabriel, 426 St Gabriel St, Montreal\nWhen: Saturday, August 31, 2019, @ 9PM - 3AM\nCost: $21\nCheck out the Facebook event page here.
