Amazon Fires Takes A Political Turn As Brazil President Calls Out French President

French President took to Twitter on Thursday to urge the countries from around the globe to come around and respond to the massive fires in the Amazon forest. However, his remarks were opposed by Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro, who warned Emmanuel Macron to stay out of it.

As news reports indicated that there is an international concern about Bolsonaro’s environmental policy, comments started rolling out on Twitter. The European Union called the forests out there as the lungs and life control of the world.

Although no actual figures are provided, but the number of burning fires is somewhere around 2,500. As a result of these fires, the effects can be seen even 1,600 miles away in Sao Paulo which was dark for about one hour on Monday. One Twitter user posted a picture of these clouds captioning “Imagine how much has to be burning to create this much smoke”. Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research counted approximately 47,155 wildfires as of Tuesday, which accounts for about 84% increase compared to last year.

Reuters reported that Bolsonaro admitted that Brazil does not have the resources to fight these fires. He also admitted that it could be the farmers who might have intentionally set up the fire. Also, he lashed out on French President for what he tweeted was an attempt to make personal political gains in a matter that is internal to Brazil and other Amazonian countries.

Reuters also reported that the farmers may have a tacit encouragement from President Bolsonaro who has encouraged the use of Amazon for Brazil’s economy. It was also reported that a dedicated “Fire Day” was designated to show the President that farmers are eager to work. EU made claims that the deforestation in the Amazon is at historic levels. Bolsonaro’s office has denied any such claims but have mentioned the difficulties of policing an area bigger than Europe.
