Lot of people believe vaccines caused autism, doesn't mean it's not dumb.

It's not a conspiracy theory, it's pretty widely believed and the president of Brazil has mentioned it. The Western MSM just chooses not to report it.

There is a link though - and before you go on one of your virtue signalling rants - I don’t care
Science is virtue signalling? You obviously care enough to make your dumb point in the first place.

It's hilarious that the minute chance that vaccines cause autism is considered a greater threat than a virus that could spread and kill loads of people.

It's just folklore for deluded, ignorant, paranoid, envious, bitter people who want to blame a non-existent threat for the chip on their shoulder.

A lot of news sources are reporting a lot of the current fires are being deliberately lit by green groups to blame on climate change.

This is why I hate greenies. They're not environmentalists like me, they're socialist terrorists who tell lies for what they believe is the "greater good".

Laughing out loud

Do you genuinely believe that green groups are burning down the amazon to try and prove a point?

There are no green groups lighting fires in the Amazon.

How do you know? You just want that to be true don't you? Whereas I'm going off reports in the non MSM that it is happening. It doesn't seem like a kooky conspiracy to me with the track record of Enviro activists and Enviro terrorism. I don't KNOW it's true but t seems quite plausible unless you've got your head in the sand and you think no matter what greenies have higher morals and completely pure.

Me too, I live in Brazil and do data entry for a small Australian company in the Amazon.

But the amazon is big though so us Amazoners can't really tell what's going on in the whole place.

It was just a quick search. I got a lot more detail on radio shows and podcasts that aren't MSM.

Brazillians can do whatever they like with THEIR rainforest… if they want to set fire to some parts to clear to make way for farming, that’s their choice.

Who is anyone else to make a judgement?

Just leftist eco-pricks showing themselves to be the racist colonialists they really are.

It's not really as simple that. Aside from the environmental impact, there are millions of people living in the Amazon, who didn't vote to have Bolsanaro push away legislation keeping land from being destroyed, or to be killed. The legislation still exists preventing miners and farmers from doing this, but the policia militar are not enforcing them.

Ok DiscoTits, before you get on your high horse:

‘…Meanwhile, US space agency Nasa said that overall fire activity in the Amazon basin was slightly below average this year.
The agency said that while activity had increased in Amazonas and Rondonia, it had decreased in the states of Mato Grosso and Pará.
It was earlier reported that a blackout on Monday in the city of São Paulo - more than 2,700km (1,700 miles) away - had been caused by smoke from the Amazon fires.
But some meteorologists say the smoke came from major fires burning in Paraguay, which is much closer to the city and not in the Amazon region…’
