BRAZIL: THE EARTH LUNGS ON FIRE-THE AMAZON IN FLAMES 🌎 🌍 🌏

Tree Hugger in the Amazon
Jair Bolsonora is not Good for Brazil:

Jair Bolsonora-Brazil’s wannabe Donald Trump has made it clear, he intended to do everything within his power to support agribusinesses and wipe out the Amazon for commercial use to grow burgers, and ignored the indigenous people who live on the land. For more than three weeks, the Amazon has been up in flames and the world is questioning if Jair Bolsonora purposely set the lungs of the world on fire. Jair Bolsonaro is a climate change denier, has plans to deforest the Amazon and other green spaces in Brazil for the Agribusiness Industrial Complex. According to the Guardian, “hours after taking office, Brazil’s new president, Jair Bolsonaro, has launched an assault on environmental and Amazon protections with an executive order transferring the regulation and creation of new indigenous reserves to the agriculture ministry – which is controlled by the powerful agribusiness lobby.”

“Jair Bolsonora-Brazil’s wannabe Donald Trump has made it clear, he intended to do everything within his power to support agribusinesses and wipe out the Amazon to use to grow burgers without thinking of the indigenous citizens who live on the land.”

Sidebar: Bolsonora hardline policies on deforestation for the Agribusiness Industrial Complex will cause more environmental devastation and displace the Indigenous tribes who have a right to live on those lands. Furthermore, the burning of the Amazon and the rejection of the $20 million from the G7 countries indicates Bolsonora interests is with the agribusiness lobby, not the people and not with protecting the environment.

Agribusiness Industrial Complex:

Agribusiness is sort of a new term when describing agriculture, management, production of food being developed. Agribusiness is the new term in describing agriculture in a business form with the growing and developing of food distribution. Another factor with agribusiness includes commercial land usage for agribusiness. Sidebar: part of Bolsonaro plans included commercial usage of the Amazon for business, specifically the beef business with a company name JBS. With the agribusiness industry on the rise and Brazil making billions of dollars, commercial land usage of the Amazon will increase which has sparked an international outcry over the past few weeks.

Similar to the P.I.C (Prison Industrial Complex) and M.I.C. (Military Industrial Complex), the Agribusiness Industrial Complex is growing, laws protecting the Amazon and the Indigenous people have been stripped beginning with former President Michel Temer of Brazil. Jair Bolsonaro hardline environmental policies and being a climate change denier has caused many in the international community and the country of Brazil to question if the President is behind fires. Sidebar: there is a possibility that Bolsonaro is behind the Amazon fires, and his rejection of the $22 million from the international community is suspect.

The world and Brazilians have to prepare for more burning of the Amazon which will continue, displacing the Indigenous people and fueling Climate Change as we are trying to slow it down. 🌎 🌍 🌏
