Apparently it's been on fire for 3 weeks, not seen much coverage about it until today

Found out today and there is no media coverage of it. So heartbroken. Smoke can be seen from space and this has been going on for 3 weeks.

True
Shame that people care more about a cathedral going up in flames than the world's most precious resource burning for 3 weeks

It's not news, that's why. This happens every year during the dry season.

I think the main reason it’s been so underreported is due to the lack of cameras. When Norte Dam went up there were film crews already in the area. You don’t get cameras in the Amazon. These days if you don’t have pictures you don’t have a story.

It's often on fire. Did see something on the BBC about this year's fires being worse than normal, though.

Which I suppose makes them newsworthy, but if I was going to be concerned about anything Amazon-related, it'd be the general deforestation, not fires.

I guess everyone is busy with GCSE results day and A-Levels and universities.

Also interesting how other petty news stories are being talked about, but this isn’t

And what's even sadder is that Bolsonaro does not give a **** about what's going on.

Climate change shows the benefits of authoritarian regimes.

China has slashed CO2 emissions through state-directed family planning, removing hundreds of millions of unnecessary births.

Many undeveloped countries hold globally important assets such as the Amazon, and they threaten the entire world through their misuse.

Why are the lungs of the world controlled by a corrupt, drug-war ravaged country? China and the EU should annex the Amazon and safeguard it.
