There's no surprise at all in the fires in the Amazon area. Nothing much abnormal. There was a concentration of organic matter from the last two years, which were rainy years, so this year the fires are slightly more common and stronger. The dry season is from August to October, peaking in September.
There was also a small rise in deforestation in comparison with the last years, but nothing big. The deforestation could happen after wood – WHICH WE SHOULD BE LEGALLY EXPLORING LIKE PEOPLE DO IN OTHER COUNTRIES, BUT WE ARE NOT, AND I BLAME TREE-HUGGERS FOR THIS ILLEGAL DEFORESTATION
– or after opening space to create free range cattle – don't think it's the same meat you import from us, because it's not, our regulations are way heavier than it should, retardly heavy in everything, any militancy for a boycott would only hurt who LEGALLY creates cattle, and a healthier cattle than you could ever get in your own countries
When they deforest an area by cutting down trees, they need to clean the terrain. So they cut trees before the dry season and let the dead vegetation die. So then they set fire to it. The green, wet, forest, will barely be burned. When they burn it's because there's a lot of dead trees already in there – and it's a natural phenomenon: around 30% of the trees in the forest are already dead by default, standing there hollow and drying as the time passes
. So… One of two things will then happen when they set fire:
—When the rains come back (around November), if let alone, the forest will healthily start to grow back, healthier and now younger than before, the flora and fauna (who had run away from the area) will somewhat be reestablished after 10 years, the trees will be in a big size in 20 years, then you barely will notice that area had been burned. So setting fire to it ASAP is a better choice than leaving it dry and accumulating dead biologic matter. Tree-huggers are insane and, if it depended on them, we would see truly huge natural fire preceded by a dead forest, fucked up and taking a long time to recover. Fires in this case are a good thing.
—Or… If the intention was to clear the terrain for other uses, then the fire will be used for this. The problem is what happens next, they will plant grass so the forest won't grow back. But let me tell you it needs some Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
