Brazilís Massive Crime Against Humanity
30, 2019 "Information
- The corrupt Brazilian
government installed by Washington has decided
to destroy the Amazon Rain Forest.
This will adversely affect the Earthís
climate by eliminating a massive carbon sink.
The beneficiaries of the destruction of the rain
forest are the timber loggers who are buddies
with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro,
environmental minister Ricardo Salles, and
farming lobbyist Tereza Cristina Dias.
might have thought that the build-up of CO2 and
the impact of carbon emissions in raising the
temperature of Earth would result in more
careful and responsible policies than one that
destroys a unique ecological habitat that
stabilizes the Earthís climate. For no other
reason than to maximize profits for timber
loggers, the Amazon Rain Forest is to be
destroyed. This is unregulated international
gangster capitalism at work.
Destroy the planet for everyone else so
that a handful of gangsters can acquire
We cannot expect any intelligence in a
government where Dias dismisses global warming
as ďan international Marxist plot.Ē Dias sounds
like a parrot for the anti-global warming think
tanks sponsored by the carbon energy lobby.
Anything that would constrain short-run
profits regardless of their long-run costs is
dismissed as a hoax or a communist plot.
President Lula de Silva and his successor Dilma
Rousseff attempted to run Brazil in the
interests of a broader segment of the population
than the robber-baron capitalists. In its
unbridled form, capitalism is an exploitative
mechanism that permits a few people to grab
large profits in the near term by imposing
massive external costs on the broader society
and the environment.
The more responsible policies of Lula and
Rousseff enraged the Brazilian robber barons and
their backers in Washington.
Using the capitalist controlled press,
Brazilís gangster capitalists demonized Lula and
Rousseff. They were accused of money laundering
and ďpassive corruption.Ē
The most corrupt elements on the
political scene framed them up on false charges.
Lula was imprisoned and Rousseff was impeached
and removed from office, thus turning the
country back over to Washington and the corrupt
Brazilian capitalists. The idiot Brazilian
population accepted this.
The fools believed their enemies.
Currently, the rain forest is being destroyed at
the rate of 3 football fields per minute.
The rain forest has already lost 17
percent of its tree cover.
Scientists report that when deforestation
reaches 20 to 25 percent the rain forest
converts to savanna and loses its ability to

capitalist gangsters, backed by Washington, are
responsible will have massive effects and impose
massive costs on the rest of mankind.
More melting of ice and release of
methane, rising and more acidic oceans, drought,
water stress, more intense storms all of which
affect food production. The extinction rates of
species increase. The external costs are many

plundering the Amazon rain forest will be
exceeded a billion times over by the external
costs imposed on the rest of the world by a
handful of Brazilian political gangsters.

It is such a massive crime that the
countries on Earth should unite and give the
corrupt gangster Brazilian government an
Stop the deforestation of the Amazon Rain
Forest or be invaded and put on trial for crimes
against humanity. There is no greater crime than
to make the Earth uninhabitable. There is no
better case for war than to protect the global
climate and life on earth.
