    This shouldn't be happening. It affects all of us. Surely there are other methods of giving people work rather than deforestation for farming.

    Maybe we should pay Brazil some money to keep that forest. If he wants Agribusiness, I'm sure it is for the money.

    Just look at the satellite images of the same rain forest areas before and after he was elected! That tells the truth as it is on the ground and cannot hide the lies created for political reasons!

    We need now NATO troops to defend and protect the Amazonien forest also agains the will of Bolsonara. Deforestation must be recognized a crime against humanity .
