It's on fire. Like F-ing bad. And that's not good.

The Brazilian trump say the fires were started by NGO's to make him look bad, and said that Brazil couldn't spare 40 firefighters to fight the fires that are destroying a football field per minute.

Meanwhile, check out the glacier melts in Iceland and Greenland.

I went to a SFL planning meeting last week. Miami-Dade has an impact model using median sea level rise numbers. Keys are doing detailed elevation surveys using drones. Prediction: critical infrastructure submerged during seasonal high tides within 30 years. SFL counties are proposing updates to the building codes, regarding flood elevations and materials for foundations and other below ground construction. Went to lunch with some of the engineers that have contracts, and they're already feeling bad about billing for a problem that likely can't be fixed, also mentioned, "wait till the insurance industry see this."

Amazon fires: Bolsonaro actively trying to devastate rainforest, leaked documents show
The Independent Zamira Rahim,The Independent Thu, Aug 22 11:26 AM EDT

Jair Bolsonaro hopes to sabotage conservation efforts in the Amazon, leaked documents show.

A series of powerpoint slides reveal that Brazilian government officials intend to build a bridge, motorway and hydroelectric plant through the rainforest.

The plans, which were leaked to Open Democracy, have emerged as fires rage throughout the Amazon.

Brazil's space research centre, Inpe, has detected 72,843 fires so far this year - an 84 per cent rise compared to 2018.

The fires have been blamed for a plume of smoke which blocked out the sun over Sao Paulo on Monday.

The leaked slides are thought to have been used at a meeting in February, held between Brazilian government officials and local leaders in the Para state, which is the site of Amazonia National Park.

"Development projects must be implemented on the Amazon basin to integrate it into the rest of the national territory in order to fight off international pressure for the implementation of the so-called 'Triple A' [conservation] project," one slide reads.

"To do this, it is necessary to build the Trombetas River hydroelectric plant, the Ă“bidos bridge over the Amazon River, and the implementation of the BR-163 highway to the border."

The Triple A project is a conservation effort led by the Gaia Amazonas organisation, in collaboration with NGOs and international governments.

It aims to conserve the world's largest protected area, a corridor of rainforest 135m hectacres long.

The corridor is intended to stretch across nations, from the Andes to the Amazon to the Atlantic.

But Mr Bolsonaro, Brazil's controversial president, appears to be deliberately obstructing the conservation effort and suggest that NGOs and indigenous communities living within the Amazon are undermining the country.

The desperate efforts of indigenous communities to save the forest have recently attracted attention on social media.

One clip, which was first shared online in July, features a distressed Pataxo woman.

The woman accuses illegal ranchers of starting fires in the Amazon in the video. It has been viewed almost five million times, according to BBC News.

Brazil's government is now under increasing pressure to intervene.

But Ricardo Salles, Brazil's environment minister, was booed and heckled on Wednesday while appearing at the Latin American and Caribbean Climate Week.

The meeting, which focused on climate change, was held in the city of Salvador. As Mr Salles took to the stage at the summit, he was met only with jeers.

Mr Bolsonaro, a far-right leader, on Thursday claimed his government "lacks the resources" to fight the blaze, but many environmental groups are now blaming him directly for the devastation.

And here we have that supposed genius, Obama, in the process of buying an ocean front mansion. He appears real worried about rising oceans. In fact, most rich progs who are railing about this the loudest live on the coast. Seems incongruent, doesn't it?

6% according to Nasa, and according to historical records this is a yearly occurance like Cali, yet less than normal acreage

What to do?

At this point, just watch it die


I was born on Planet Earth
The rotating ball where man comes first
It's been around for a long, long time
But now it's time to watch it die

I saw a man on my big blue screen
He ruled the world economy
He said the rich would never concede
But some day soon he'll be put to sleep

I've seen the life of the forest green
And adaptations of the deep blue sea
And who knows who is the fittest
They will all soon be put to rest

On a plunging flight and we're sitting in the pilots seat
In the midst of life
People on a dark horizon praying
Somebody will save their lives

I was born on Planet Earth
At a drastic time full of plastic mirth
And every day I've seen increasing signs
And you would too if you'd opened your eyes
You had a chance, you did not try
So now it's time to watch it die
Now it's time to watch it die

I love that Graffin was writing this in early 90's.

Also, that photo collage on the cover, two 1930's racist murders mocking the press after an all white jury acquittal, with the heads of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp guard dogs.

They're touring FL mid Sep
