        Brazilian here. Do you have any notion of the size of land we are talkin about? It's about half the size of United States. The amazon rainforest is an ecosystem, not a single forest, it's impossible for it to "be burning" just by the fact that it's inaccessible in its more dense parts. The areas that are being burned are focus fires near rural areas caused by farmers to clean the terrain, and is justified in some cases if it's done in private property, as it is a known method to clean and fertilize the land. Also, some parts of Amazon burn espontaneously every year as part of a natural fenomena. This is happening for decades, yet the forest is still there. It would take centuries to burn the hole thing at this rate. Funny how just after a right wing politician is elected the UN decides to focus on the Amazon in our territory, it's undeniable the interest in internationalization for political purposes and threat to our sovereignty. Also, the Amazon is not responsible for global oxygen levels, most of it is produced by algae, this is basic knowledge you should have learnt in school.

            If all the fires in the Amazon that were recently burning really added up to an area 2/3 the size of the continental USA, as stated in the news video in this Trevor Noah clip, that would mean that 5,629,408 km would be burning. This cannot be true, as that would mean an area almost 2/3 the size of Brazilwould be burning, as Brazil is only 1/2 million square kilometers larger than the continental US. It would also mean almost the whole of the Amazon would be burning, since the whole Amazon, itself is 6,000,000 sq km, including all the other South American countries it's also in.   
             
            8,515,770  sq km, Brazil (435,306 sq km larger than the continental US.)
            8,080,464  sq km, Continental US
            6,000,000  sq km, Amazon 
             
            2/3 x 8,080,464 (USA) = 5,333,106 km supposedly burning in the Amazon!!! 
            Wrong! This is BS!! That's close to the whole Amazon! Or equivalent to 2/3 of Brazil.
             
            "How big is the Amazon rainforest?
            Amazon Rainforest, large tropical rainforest occupying the drainage basin of the Amazon River and its tributaries in northern South America and covering an area of 2,300,000 square miles (6,000,000 square km)."
             
            You can check out all these figures and you will get the same result.
            By the way, I am a fan of Trevor Noah. My comment is only about the erroneous reporting of the news program.

                  The clearing of land in the Amazon has been going on for many years. It is about time it is finally getting the global attention needed to stop this devastating process of clearing the Amazon forest to to create farms, many of which are to become cattle ranches. You really want to help? Stop eating beef from cattle ranches that are harming the planet. Protest with your voice and most importantly, Vote With Where You Spend Your Dollars. That is the only vote big business understands.

                                      In fact, Brazilians hate Bolsonaro. Only a group of fascist Brazilians love him.
                                      He is the dumbest president in the history of Brazil.

                                                For Trevor Noah to not immediacy reference the indigenous populations IN the Amazon is a disservice. To center a blue eyed white presenting man and note a Brazilian or indigenous person of Brazil is discouraging.

                                                  "Kicking" fires, I.e. Covering the fire path in dirt, is a more effective way than pooring water on it. --> Removing the flammable material

                                                  However, this is a lot less viable on a large scale with limited people.

                                                          So there should be an agreement to sell food to Brazil at a fair price to all involved.

                                                          Obviously the problem that Brazil has with land may be more than just growing food for its country though, in which case I'm sure that's there can still be some civil agreement that makes sense

ECO TERRORISTS GROUPS FROM BRAZIL AND OTHER SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES HAVE THREATED TO BURN DOWN THE AMAZON ON COUNTLESS OCCASIONS EVER SINCE WE FOUND OUT CO2 IS FILTERED THROUGH THE AMAZON.... THEY THINK IT WILL CAUSE OTHER COUNTRIES TO GIVE ECONOMIC AID TO POORER LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES AND OPEN UP BOARDERS.... THEY THINK BECAUSE THEY OWN THE AMAZON THE WORLD SHOULD PAY THEM FOR NATURALLY CLEANING THE AIR... THE AMAZON IS WHY AMERICAS POLLUTION DOES NOT LOOK LIKE CHINAS... THE IMPACT CANADAS COLD AIR AND MEXICOS HOT AIR HAS ON THE U.S. IS IMPORTANT... UPSETTING THE BALANCE EVEN A LITTLE WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS... GOOD NEWS... FIRES IN DENSELY PACT FORESTS ARE A GOOD THING.... WHEN LEAVES, BRANCHED DEAD TREES AND OTHER FOREST MATTER FALLS TO THE GROUND NO1 IS AROUND TO PICK IT UP... IT COLLECTS AND COLLECTS YEAR AFTER YEAR AND WHEN A FIRE FINELY COMES IT BURNS THAT MATTER INSTEAD OF THE LIVING TREES THAT SUPPLY US WITH FRESH O2 AND FILTERS CO2.... IN CERTAIN AREAS SOME TREES THAT ARE NOT AS RARE AS OTHERS KILL OFF THE RARE TREES BECAUSE THEY CONSUME ALL THE WATER.... BETTER NOW THAN 10YRS FROM NOW.... IT WOULD BE WORSE... TREES WILL REGROW.. AND CAN BE REPLANTED WE HAVE THE TECH.... BUT WE CANNOT STOP IDIOT GROUPS WHO THINK BURNING DOWN THEIR OWN COUNTRY WILL FORCE THE U.S. AND OTHERS INTO FINANCIAL AGREEMENTS.... I MEAN COME ON YOUR GOV. WOULDN'T BUY FIRE EQUIPMENT.... THEY WOULD EMBEZZLE THE SHIT OUT OF THOSE AID PACKAGES AND THEY KNOW IT....!!!!
