    Amazon produce oxygen for half of the planet. No need to say more

      That's not true. Most of the oxygen for the Earth is produced by phytoplankton in the oceans.

    You are aware that the air moves around the planet? The Amazon Rainforest is a carbon sink and as it burns it releases CO2 into the atmosphere. As the CO2 increases the greenhouse effect increases. CO2 is heavier than O2 so oxygen gets pushed higher into the atmosphere with the eventual result that it escapes. So if the heat from increased temperatures doesn't kill us suffocation will.

      "CO2 is heavier than O2 so oxygen gets pushed higher into the atmosphere" .... That's nonsense!

    You have obviously never studied ecology but try simple logic. The rainforest there produces 20% of the world's oxygen. It is much smaller than 20% of the globe or even 20% of the landmass.

    Well, the rain forest is one of earths primary air scrubbers and oxygen producers. With all the deforestation and now the massive fire, we loose a good percentage of that so certainly cause for concern.

    Nearly all vegetation absorbs CO2 and carbon emissions converting it to O2.

    Make no mistake, mans encroachment in these places, making concrete jungles, does have an impact worthy of alarm. Not that the global warming activist and fascist have basis of fact, we need conservation starting now,

    What we have in all natural resources is under strain for the 7 billion + humans, that will exceed 8 in a decade.

      There will be no concrete jungles in Amazonia. The deforestation is so that land is converted to grassland to support the beef industry.

    Alarmists are warning us of danger. If people ignore the warning, they can be endangered. For example, if someone warn you to avoid driving across railroad tracks because a train is coming, then you may get hit by a train.

    The Amazon rain forest absorb carbon dioxide. If it is gone, that carbon dioxide will escape to the atmosphere.and cause further global warming.

      You are not taking into account the grass and other ground covers that produce O2 that will replace the forests when the Brazilians get through raping the forest.

    Because forests buffer water and heat, and protect the soil

    The Amazon provides nutrients to the oceans which is turned into oxygen. It also provides rain water to the entire region, plus a lot of our medicine is derived from the plants that live there

    Are you an idiot or just a troll?

    The Amazon constitutes billions of tonnes of carbon locked away in the plants. It burning is releasing loads of that carbon as carbon dioxide. Not only that, but our wonderful gaseous atmosphere is a 'liquid medium', gases diffuse and equalise in pressures and concentrations, the oxygen produced in the Amazon makes it way around the world, as does the CO2 emitted elsewhere in the world gets locked up in trees in the Amazon.
