However, that is not true, according to a brave journalist — Alexandria Symonds — at the NY Times. She reports:
“Natural fires in the Amazon are rare, and the majority of these fires were set by farmers preparing Amazon-adjacent farmland for 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.”
Our brave journalists skates close to the dangerous edge of violating Editorial Mandates by telling readers:
“Did climate change cause these fires, and how will they affect climate change?
These fires were not caused by climate change. They were, by and large, set by humans. However, climate change can make fires worse. Fires can burn hotter and spread more quickly under warmer and drier conditions.”
[Note: there is no mention of actual conditions of temperature or rainfall concurrent with these fires in the article, as usual for when climate is being blamed — just the implication that “climate change will makes things worse” without any data. — kh]
Greta Thunberg doesn’t go to school, because adults around her have convinced her the climate situation is simply too bad. Instead, she is traveling on an expensive yacht to the US, preaching imminent doom as a “magnet for hope.” She has been told that children had a much brighter future when CO2 levels were lower, like a century ago. Greta believes greenhouse gases cause catastrophic heatwaves, natural disasters and disease, which will ruin her future.
It is easy enough to test that idea out, by looking at how children lived a century ago – at lower CO2 levels. On this date in 1916, children were out of school for different reasons. New York Public Schools were shut down due to a polio epidemic.

Al Gore Poised To Profit Big From Anti-Meat Drive – Largest Investor in ‘Beyond Meat’ - Via No Tricks Zone website -"Al Gore is standing to rake in millions from a World Resources Institute meat consumption reduction report, a report that will certainly help boost profits for the meat substitute manufacturers – in which Gore just happens to be a big stakeholder...Al Gore, partner and advisor to Kleiner Perkins, Beyond Meat’s big investor, stands to haul in millions, should governments move to restrict real meat consumption and force citizens to consume the dubious substitutes and fakes."

Climate activists cheer UN report: 'We need a radical transformation, not incremental shifts, towards a global land use and food system that serves our climate needs.'
Climate Depot's Marc Morano Note: Get ready! UN coming after your burgers & steaks to save the planet. This is yet another report from UN IPCC intended to empower UN bureaucrats to centrally plan our lives for no impact on the climate.
Still not willing to put in a meat patch to stop your cravings for meat? Well, there is a solution to that too. If you don't care about stopping eating meat, you can take drugs to make you care! Liao proposed "pharmacological enhancement of altruism and empathy…could increase the likelihood that we adopt the necessary behavioral & market solutions for curbing climate change." He envisions a way to induce an allergy to meat, to help people reduce their consumption of animals.
