Eco-fascists love pointing the finger at anyone and everyone who could be deemed as bearing blame for any harm caused to the environment, and with the Amazon fires damaging the rain forest, they jumped at the story very quickly. But, as with many other stories, they jumped at it WAY too quickly.
Celebrities like Madonna, Cristiano Ronaldo and Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as foreign leaders like Emmanuel Macron have all peddled fake news regarding the Amazon fires. For example, French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted: “The Amazon rain forest – the lungs which produce 20% of our planet’s oxygen – is on fire.” Ronaldo peddled the same claim, saying it produces 20% of the world’s oxygen and DiCaprio (and Macron) both shared a photo of blazing fires destroying the Amazon… that’s 20 years old. CNN and the NYT also used the same term of “lungs of the world”, but denied that the cause was climate change (not that that matters to the eco-fascists).
So what is the truth? First, like the NYT said, this wasn’t caused by climate change. “Natural fires in the Amazon are rare, and the majority of these fires were set by farmers preparing Amazon-adjacent farmland for the next year’s crops and pasture. Much of the land that is burning was not old-growth rain forest, but land that had already been cleared of trees and set for agricultural use.” In other words, farmers are doing this to control pests, weeds and to encourage growth in pastures.
Second, the Amazon is not the “lungs” of the world. I came across conflicting information regarding the “20%” figure, with some sources saying it doesn’t produce 20% while others say it does. However, regardless of however much it produces, it also respirates it anyway. According to Amazon forest expert Dan Nepstad, “the Amazon produces a lot of oxygen but it uses the same amount of oxygen through respiration so it’s a wash.” Basically, it uses as much oxygen as it produces in a closed system, so to claim it’s “the lungs of the world” is a lie. In fact, Nepstad went on to say: “The Amazon produces a lot of oxygen, but so do soy farms and [cattle] pastures.”
Third, while the media and foreign politicians are wagging their fingers at Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro (who is a right-winger), they are blatantly ignoring the fact that there is also a wildfire raging in socialist Bolivia. Bolivian President Evo Morales has been very open about telling farmers that “it’s fine to set [fires] to gather charcoal to sell for fuel or clear the land of brush for planting.” The only real reason Bolsonaro is being attacked here is because he is a right-winger president. There have been a lot of fires in the Amazon over the years, yet this is the first time we’re hearing people attacking the Brazilian president for it.
Finally, while people are claiming that the Amazon fires are a “record high”, NASA declared that the fires are only “close to the average in comparison to the past 15 years.” There is nothing adamantly special about this year’s Amazon forest fires apart from the fact that Jair Bolsonaro is now President of Brazil and has been attacked by the media for not subscribing to their cult of doom and gloom surrounding climate change.
While 2019 has been the most active year for fires in the Amazon since 2010, what the media doesn’t mention is that “about ½ the years BEFORE 2019 are higher, and about ½ are lower,” according to Climate Depot. In other words, the 2019 fire is nothing particularly special throughout the last decade and is mostly a nothingburger being made into something more than what it is by eco-fascists who claim a particularly hot day is a sign of “climate change”.
And even then, the “hot days” aren’t particularly special either. According to the U.S. Climate Reference Network, there hasn’t been any warming in the U.S. dating back to 2005. What’s more, 2019 has been, on average, cooler than 2005.
The eco-fascist movement requires people to have really short, selective memory. They pretend that particularly hot days in the middle of SUMMER is somehow not right and an inherent threat to our planet and our very own lives. Ignore the data that shows us there’s nothing particularly special about any particular day or any particular record-high, you’re feeling hot, you’re feeling uncomfortable and it’s all capitalism’s fault.
The eco-fascist movement requires lazy people to do as little research as possible and just accept what is being told to them from the fake news media and little kids who think they know everything about the climate throwing the biggest temper tantrums since Trump became President. It requires as much disinformation as possible, which is why we see mentally-challenged celebrities like Madonna and DiCaprio showing pictures of an Amazon forest fire FROM 20 YEARS AGO.
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’m calling these people “eco-fascists”. The reason being that it’s entirely accurate. Calling them “environmentalists” doesn’t sound proper enough. These people are every bit as fascistic as Mussolini, Stalin, Hitler, Mao Zedong, etc. They use the argument of climate change in order to gain more and more power for themselves.
It’s why AOC’s former chief of staff noted that the GND wasn’t really about fighting climate change but about changing the entire economy of the United States. In other words, changing the U.S. from a capitalist-based economy to a socialist-based one.
The issue of climate change can cover pretty much every single issue. From abortion to religion to gun violence to poverty to immigration, climate change can be infused into every single argument, which is why Democrats say illegals are “environmental refugees”.
These people are the very definition of an eco-fascist, and as such, I believe they deserve to be called that way. We all know they love to use the word “fascist” against Trump and anyone who disagrees with them. Let’s see how they like it when the word is used against them.
“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.”
