#Amazon rain forest emits more #CO2 than it absorbs!
#news article

According to a study in the last decade the amazon emitted 20% more CO2 than it absorbed.
Main causes are deforestation and fires.
In 2019 #deforestation almost increased fourfold compared to the years before.
So this is one major tipping point that's already reached.

VENDREDI 23 AOÛT A 14 HEURES : RASSEMBLEMENT DEVANT L’AMBASSADE DU BRÉSIL EN FRANCE


clock

Vendredi 23 août 2019 à 14:00 UTC+02

Ambassade du Brésil à Paris
Embaixada do Brasil em Paris
34, cours Albert 1er, 75008 Paris

En ce moment même, des feux de forêt détruisent la forêt amazonienne à un rythme alarmant.

Celle-ci est la forêt tropicale la plus grande et la plus riche en biodiversité du monde. Ces feux de forêt ont un double impact : d'une part, la forêt tropicale représente un puits de carbone essentiel qui absorbe le CO2 de l'atmosphère mais, d'autre part, en brûlant, la forêt libère d'énormes quantités de gaz à effet de serre - accélérant ainsi le cercle vicieux du réchauffement climatique.

Depuis l'arrivée au pouvoir du président Jair Bolsonaro, les incendies de forêt n'ont cessé de s'aggraver, sous l'effet de la sécheresse mais aussi de la terrible politique environnementale du gouvernement brésilien, qui considère l'Amazonie comme une vache à lait.

Ce vendredi 23 août, #YouthForClimate #Paris fera grève aux côtés des autres groupes de Youth For Climate et de Fridays For Future du monde entier. À Paris, nous nous rassemblerons devant l’ambassade brésilienne en France, pour exprimer notre consternation et notre colère face aux politiques du gouvernement brésilien qui accélèrent considérablement la crise climatique.

Ce rassemblement est déclaré auprès de la préfecture de police de Paris.

RENDEZ VOUS À 14:00 DEVANT L’AMBASSADE (METRO FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT)

Guys, I need your help. Or rather, #Brazil needs your help. Brazil is literally going through a nuclear winter because of forest fires right now. These pictures are from all over the country, taken during the day! Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world, btw. It looks (and feels) like hell.
#SãoPaulo, 11th largest city on the planet, was without sunlight for most of yesterday because of forest fires that are happening literally 1000 miles away. The whole state of Rondônia (highlighted in red in the map image, with an area almost the size of the whole UK) is mostly on fire. My city, roughly as far away from the fire as London is from Moscow, woke up to yellow skies and no sun today. All because of corruption and mismanagement by our government. Earlier this month the president Jair #Bolsonaro fired the director of the National Institute of Space Research ( #INPE in Portuguese) because the satellite data about #deforestation didn’t match his narrative. As simple as that, he openly called the data a lie and just fired the head of the institute. A few days later this disaster is happening and it doesn’t seem like it’ll end soon.

So what I ask of you is: share this on facebook, twitter, whatsapp, instagram, wherever you can, please. So people can see what’s happening here, so the people responsible can be held accountable for killing the rich nature of my country.

This is about a whole ecosystem that is rapidly dying because of greedy politicians. I’m not here to be partisan and am sorry about the depressing tone, but everything said here is public knowledge and can be easily searched online. I’ll provide links with information below. Please, I beg of you, spread this message and help us.

Deforestation of Brazilian Amazon surges to record high


The Guardian

Environmentalists fear 2019 will be one of worst years for deforestation in recent memory.

Deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon surged last month to the highest May level since the current monitoring method began, prompting concerns that president Jair Bolsonaro is giving a free pass to illegal logging, farming and mining.

The world’s greatest rainforest – which is a vital provider of oxygen and carbon sequestration – lost 739sq km during the 31 days, equivalent to two football pitches every minute, according to data from the government’s satellite monitoring agency. (...)

“The spike in deforestation is depressing, but hardly surprising: you have a government in Brazil who is dismantling nearly every environmental policy put in place since 1992 and who is harassing federal environmental agents, thus empowering environmental criminals.” (...)

Other factors might have contributed to the increase. The first few months of this year were cloudy and rainy, which made satellite monitoring more difficult, so some areas might have been missed by earlier sweeps. (...)

Another factor is an expansion of infrastructure projects, including roads and hydroelectric plants. The Brazilian state that suffered the greatest deforestation last month was Pará, which is home to the BR163 road through the Amazon and the Belo Monte dam.

Nope, European plastic and waste is recycled or stored in professional waste treatment/storage facilities. It might be a shock to you, but this is why every European city has these vehicles:




These are called "GARBAGE TRUCKS" and they collect our garbage to bring it to specialized treatment/storage facilities.

Unfortunately, the 5 billion shitholers are to dumb to replicate this amazing technology at home, so they pollute the environment of the world:

#Deforestation




#SafeDrinkingWater




#Plastic-in-Water




#AirPollution





That's why we need to re-colonize Africa. So poor Africans stop dying in garbage-avalances: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dozens-killed-in-ethiopia-garbage-dump-landslide/
