    If we lose 20% of the world’s oxygen we might not live long enough to die from global warming.

      The media is really trying to get him out of the presidency spreading fake news, but he’s actually the best president we had in so many years! And no, the Amazon does not produce 20% of our oxygen, this information is false.

      That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard this year. Calm down Benjie, The planets just breathing.

    • If you eat meat, you can’t talk environment. LEARN WHAT IS CAUSING MOST OF CO2 pollution – meat and dairy industry. Now look up Raw Vegan Not Gross or Avantgarde vegan or Rawfully Christina to see HOW WELL YOU CAN LIVE VEGAN

    The way we destroying our planet reminds me of the destruction of Krypton caused by its population.

  3. stops all wars now, save the planet!

  4. 20 more yrs of rump, and we would have to build underground and regular folks will be using oxygen concentrators just so they won’t feel out of breath.

  5. Will Jair Bolsonaro rake the leaves & jungle vines like Trump aka SpankyPants?

  6. Bye guys. This is it. Its inevitable. Illegal businesses will never dissappear sadly. This is the end guys. Sadly in the near future we will be in crisis and this is it. Generation z. Last letter of the alphabet. No more letters, we’re done 🙁

    • Stop spouting nonsense.

      We have the technology to fix things. We “just” need to upgrade our societal software.

      Ethernal growth is not possible outside fairytales and economic textbooks.
      Acknowledging this will lead to a different world, but not all change is negative.

      Who will miss diesel exhaust and acid rain?

    • really?

    • Not quite this could be a long term human extinction

  7. Já há previsão de chuvas para a Amazônia amanhã, 24 de agosto de 2019.

  8. It’s crazy how our government classifies environmentalists as terrorists but guys like him and the oil industry actually terrorize the planet

  9. We are going to have to literally fight for our planet

    • @cristiane cristiane Good for you. We are definitely not supporting him. We Europeans strive to ban the products from Brazil unless this mad burning ends. Good luck then with the economic depression.

    • Bolsonaro 2022!!!

  10. I hate living in the 21st century. The worst era of humanity so far. Yes we had plague in the Middle Ages, the world wars last century, invasions, but that seems nothing compared to these times. At least our ancestors didnt struggle with lack of oxygen, melthibg ice caps, global famine, what we are going to experience in few years. As for me, I always though my time should be in the 19th century, not now.

  11. This is the world we live in a dumb cathedral gets burned the whole world is outraged. Something essential to alot of species survival like the Amazon no one blinks an eye…..

    • I am outraged by the destruction of the Amazon and the destruction of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon

    • Dude. They will still get your packages pronto. Everything isnt in the same warehouse. They already thout about problems like this.

    • Inbred Hicks and conservatives the bane of this planet… Jeff bezos is latin immigrant you moron. Same it with me f u jesus

    • @Cyber Monk You’re both the cancer of Earth. The Republicans are destroying the Earth, one Rainforest at a time, and you liberals are causing Feminists to exist.

  12. Let’s all collectively use aur power and start meditating and visualizing that it starts raining🙏🏼❤🌧🌧🌧💧💧

  13. Stop, blaming and explaining just help. It already happened nothing will happen if you blame and explain

    2:14 “…the sign from God?!?!” Really? Man, we are now in serious trouble.

    “a sign from God or whoever” – what do you mean by “whoever”, Chris? Or are you just pandering to your core atheistic audience?

    2013- never too late to save the earth
    2015- never too late to save the earth
    2018- never too late to save the earth
    2050- never too late to save the earth

  19. one part of the world getting destroyed by fire(AMAZON) while the other with water(PUNJAB)… and all governments care about is having bigger GUN than the other guy in the room..
