  • We can not control the fires in California so how we are gonna control the fires all the way to Brazil it is so pathetic

  • Carlos Eduardo Suess says:

    It is unbelievable how stupid people are! This fires happen every year during the drought season, the worst one was in 2004, nobody said anything! Why?? Politics! Macron is against the agreement of free trade that Brasil has made with europe and now is posting pictures of fires taken in before 2003 (the date the photographer died).
    Wake up guys!!

  • What a shame to be Brazilian.This is nothing new. Brazil’s been doing this intentionally for years, if not decades. Brazil’s only taking action now that we’re getting pressure from other countries as they’re threatening to impose sanctions if we don’t do anything about it.

  • Fake news. These fires are normal. It’s the normal burning of agricultural land. There were a lot more fires in 2003 if anyone cared to look.

  • Yurit Cardenas says:

    The PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR LIBERALS TO DO SOME VIRTUE SIGNALING, IN THE MEANTIME BRAZILIAN FORESTS FIREFIGHTERS AND THE ARMY DOING THE REAL WORK STOPPING THE FIRES. TYPICAL LIBERAL HYPOCRISY.

  • Christopher Nielsen says:

    It was no accident and it may never recover fully but with proper legislation and efforts the Amazon can be nursed back to health

  • Fred Flintstone says:

    Thanks for not telling us who / what companies started these fires and if they will be prosecuted.
    We only get to hear from the blow hard hypocrites trying to sell us their fake concerns for the sake of votes.
    No I’m not referring to Trump alone, I’m referring to every politician and bureaucrat seen and heard in this video.

  • All those Forrest fires are to be blamed from the scoialist government prior to bolsonario. And because of their inaction to clean up the Forrest, the dried trees and mismanagement led to this.

    Also this doesn't make any since fires are natural in the amazon it's happened naturally before and not just in the amazon but in other rainforest as well.

  • Sonia maddalena says:

    These are music to the globalist ears who wants to control the natural resources and threat a country sovereignty . Why they don't do the same with the Californian fires and recently in Europe. These are just propaganda. Believe me, I want to preserve nature and animals, They are not offering help , they know the natural minerals reserves.

  • Look man
    I love the rain
    But in texas ??? We can see where the rain is coming from and from that is not a good sign from where im lookin at and knowing where its coming from

    So stand up please

  • The only two entities that could have started this level of fire are the Brazilian govt. or their corporate friends. Either way, the only reason they're doing anything is because finally, FINALLY, after NEARLY A MONTH, the world found out.

  • I love how Brazilians hit the streets to protest rather than get out there and create a plan of action to fight that fire. "Government, you're so bad! Save us!"

  • Well I see there’s no common sense..when it comes to the News these Days..The Amazon rain Forrest finally drying up…and here come the globalist in a Panic for more Money..One Day the Earth will burn..that’s when You want to panic.

  • It's very difficult to find, but I finally found out how much area has been burned in the rainforest. They don't want you to know because saying 70,000 fires sounds like a whole lot more than the actual square miles that have burned. 1330 sq.mi have burned in the rainforest. There are a total of 2.1 square miles of Amazon rainforest. That amounts to 0.1%, or one tenth of a percent that has burned. Compare that to California's 970 sq.mi that burned last year. the other thing they're not telling you is that the Amazon decays enough every year that the amount of CO2 emitted equals the amount of oxygen produced. They cancel each other out. So? Why the the hysteria!!! Use your brains people!!!

  • Either some fancy rich man or woman wants to build sometin' or two words, global warming…..the worlds best environmentalists said that forest fires will start more if we don't reduce our carbon foot print. The Amazon is the lung of the world.

  • The hell with the trades. We are destroying a very important place of the planet that impacts everyone! They put money above the planet in the 80's and now we are paying for it 😞

  • Even Fox is spreading fake news. Shame on you.

    The fires are on agricultural land!! Not the rain forest!!

    The fires were started so they could clear more land for agricultural planting of soybeans and raising cattle.

    Shame on Fox News for spreading fake news!!

  • Brandon Dillon says:

    All those protesters should get some gear and a shovel and head to help with the fire instead of standing in the street…

  • “Amazon fires”. They’re not “Amazon wild fires” now are they? They’re only on already deforested land used for agriculture (people gotta eat!). These are controlled burns. If you don’t control burn the land, you can’t grow food & you end up with uncontrollable wildfires due to overgrown brush (…California).

  • these matters dont seem to be matters our clinton scam press can cover properly, like all the other examples. theres a simple reality and then theres how our intern impeached ford flopped democrats demand attention, and what they estimate as their respected 'pressure' is often what they will lie about later in terms of being victims. but its not anything deblasio couldnt solve in a couple seconds either.

  • Charles Vandenburgh says:

    With the fires and volcanoes throughout the World, the likelihood that the lack of the sun's warming effect on Earth could result in a mini ice age in parts of the Planet.

  • Why don't they get these protestors as volunteers? I would be more than happy to volunteer if it were my own country or homeland

  • Everything SamsungPro says:

    Is sign language an international language? Would an American and Russian understand each other in sign language?

  • These fires are completely normal and they are all happening in areas that have already been cleared. There is no crisis or emergency happening here! Most of the photos you see being shared are old photos or of another place.

  • Marco Ana Marino says:

    The Brazilian government, they're the one who are responsible for the deforestation and didn't do anything about it.

  • This is fake news, the fires are not out of control, they are perfectly normal wild fires that the media is using against Bolsanaro to blame.

  • Guys I am Brazilian and we have this problem every year, like you in California , and Macron is nervous because the Brazilian government has cut all NGOs in the Amazon and they know the potential and wealth we have in the Amazon, the amazon is almost the size of all europe, can you imagine if we use just i little bit?

  • I love reading all the conspiracy comments on Fox News' YouTube channel. You all some stupid Mofo's. I'm kinda glad we going extinct.

  • You don't get it do you? the very ones who have to benefit from destruction of the Amazon Rain Forest are the Democrats and socialist world wide who need to create real man made global warming from the increase in CO2. This would allow fear craze voting in 2020, which could finally be substantiated by real science, which says at least the Western Hemisphere is getting warmer. So the one's who would benefit the most would be the democrat party in the USA. Anyone really desiring to Stop Global Warming, I mean real G. W. needs to get a shovel & a ticket for Brazil and get busy.

  • Blueberry Mustard says:

    I don't believe in this climate change crap but what make me laugh is every single Paris agreement country EVERY SINGLE ONE has not sent a fire force to help the matter..Jee I wonder why?? So they can continue their lie

  • Syisulis Solease says:

    Where was this a month ago, This man got caught in his BS. Now he trying to act better late then never i guess………

  • What about those poor forest people living in the forest what will become of them? And all the cute forest animals some living in the trees, what will become of them. We must put these flames out, now.

  • before 50 years water pollution air pollution send pollution wint polution earth polution to listen 50 years negative energy working in the world negative energy going to earth corporate business corporate negative energy down down down down corporate Downtown closed all corporate companies immediately. Where going humanity

  • Funny… both Portugal 1 of it's many former colonies is on fire in Brazil. One in Northern hemisphere Summer the other Southern hemisphere Winter. One in Summer finds over 50% Arsonist Caused. The other says nothing then finally employs Military to help gain control and put the fires out!

    Ask how Brazil's fires got started? Globalists claim Corporate Caused in Winter and GLOBAL WARMING. Yet doesn't try to stop them w/military till now. So are they really that bad or is it Globalists insisting on pushing their Agenda? Who do you believe? But remember Governments always pointing fingers at MAN CAUSED? Why not Woman Caused? They set intentional fires too? Remember they have such wonderful excuses like "Oh waaahhh… I have a headache! ;-P LOL…… Clueless is as Clueless SAYS!

  • Note to Brazilians, next time you want to clear some farmland, use a chainsaw, bulldozer or machete. That way you can keep the rest of the world out of your business..,

  • Faux news commenters even denying their own network and calling it fake news. At this point we may as well just let the world burn.
