Extinctionists: Leaders and decision-makers who accept extinction – minor or major, local and global – as an acceptable outcome of climate change; and justify it in order to maximize power and benefit.

For example:

BRAZIL:  Record Amazon Wildfires

Brazil’s space research center has reported 72,843 wildfires in the Amazon rainforest this year, with 9,507 of them taking place since last Thursday. The agency said that fires have increased in the states of Rondonia and Amazonas, which declared a national emergency earlier this month over the wildfires.

While fires in the Amazon can naturally occur between the months of August and November, they are frequently started to create space for cattle ranching. Residents as far as São Paulo in southeastern Brazil experienced blackouts on Monday due to smoke from wildfires in the Amazon and nearby Paraguay.

  1. Brazil has the world’s largest commercial livestock herds. Agriculture products constitute 40% of Brazilian exports. Amazonia is burning because Bolsonaro and his cronies are using fire to clear the jungle for agriculture production, chiefly beef production and its attendant methane emissions, a double whammy to the biosphere. Insanity.

    It seems pretty clear that one way to stop the fires is by making these exports subject to a world wide boycott. Get organized or go extinct, seems like a simple enough choice.

    1. From Wikipedia:
      Watts Up With That? (WUWT) is a blog[1] promoting climate change denial[7] that was created by Anthony Watts in 2006.[2][3]

      So, therefore, zero credibility.

  2. Terrific post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
    Appreciate it!
