亞馬遜年年燒 為什麼今年這麼吵

The increase in fires burning in Brazil set off a storm of international outrage last week. Celebrities, environmentalists, and political leaders blame Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, for destroying the world’s largest rainforest, the Amazon, which they say is the “lungs of the world.” These celebrities also shared photos on their social media to raise the awareness of the amazon fire.

上個星期巴西雨林大火引發國際一片撻伐聲浪。許多名人、環保人士及政治領袖譴責巴西總統波索納,認為他的行為造成全世界最大的雨林,也是世界之肺--亞馬遜雨林遭到破壞。這些名人在社群媒體上分享亞馬遜大火的照片,引發大眾對此事的關注。


And yet the photos weren’t actually of the fires and many weren’t even of the Amazon. Some celebrities shared photos from Montana, India, and Sweden.

但有些照片其實不是亞馬遜這次大火的照片。有些照片來自美國Montana、印度及瑞典。


One of the world’s leading Amazon forest experts also said that amazon being lungs of the world is bullshit. “There’s no science behind that. The Amazon produces a lot of oxygen but it uses the same amount of oxygen through respiration so it’s a wash.” He said.

世界知名的亞馬遜森林專家也表示,所謂的亞馬遜是世界之肺這件事也是屁話「這沒有經過科學證實」。他表示,亞馬遜雖然產生許多氧氣但當地的生物也消耗了同樣多的氧氣。


Also One of Brazil’s leading environmental journalists agrees that media coverage of the fires has been misleading. He said “It was under Lula (2003-2008) that Brazil had the highest incidence of burning,But Lula was not accused of putting the Amazon at risk.”

巴西著名的環保領域的記者也認為媒體報導偏頗。他表示,前巴西總統Lula在任期間才是亞馬遜火災最頻繁的時期,但他卻沒有遭到如此指控。」
