    Yes, it was man made by loggers and farmers who want to clear the land. What’s funny is that we sit back and talk about how terrible it is while we (in the US) cause plenty of environmental damage in the interest of “progress” and “industrialization.”

      thankyou for your answer! i agree, but unfortunately it’s easier for people to rely on others taking action rather than doing anything about it themselves. and it sucks.

    Yes, by a greedy demagogue selling out the lives of many Amazonian native peoples, millions of innocent wildlife, the beautiful trees and plants which were the lungs of our planet, and everyone's health on earth. For the grubby profits.

    Asking random people online "Is this true?" is not "research." For fcuk's sake, learn how to use the resources of a library.

      it appears someone’s a little pressed. is everything OK at home? getting so aggressive over someone asking a simple question is concerning. instead of getting upset at what random people online are asking, learn how to use the resources of a library since you struggle to spell words with 5 letters.

    For some reason, massive fires never start in Antarctica. Weird.
