  1. The deforestation will eventually cripple the hydrological cycle and finish off the jungle.
    In the Amazon, loggers rip off the big bucks, and then the ranchers and farmers clear, burn and deplete the soil which is already the poorest and most infertile in the world. When one cuts down the forest, it is irretrievably lost. The humus layer is all too soon washed out. Hence, the evil of destroying the Amazon rainforest will have been exponentially increased.
    Buying beef or timber that originated in the Amazon is irresponsible.

  2. FAKE NEWS, the biggest in the world!! Come on guys is a prank. It’s all lie! Ask Nasa, nothing happpening, it’ very old videos 1998, pictures from 30 years ago. Just do your own research! FAKE NEWS!

    Assume AGW is 1. real 2, a bad thing. Question: What global climate should we be trying to achieve? warmer, colder, wetter, drier? And how much? 
    Given we are being asked to spend untold trillions of dollars, and have every human on the planet to change the way they live, I don'y think its unreasonable to ask for a number, a goal. What I find…interesting is I can't find an answer. 

    Given that I fully admit I'm Not that Bright, please make it a simple answer. What's the goal?

    This guy has been asking the same questions for decades. Here he is in 2017 telling us that he's not that bright.

  4. stay out of brazil business….Let brazilians handle their business in their own courts. These fires are controlled burns, not arson, to create farmland to help the economy. Fix the California fire problem which is arson related first before worrying about brazil fires. Next time brazilians will use chainsaws, bulldozers and machetes and no one will notice.

  5. Could some kind soul please explain to me why I'm supposed to take anything Mann says seriously?
