Source: The Hill


BY CHRIS MILLS RODRIGO - 08/22/19 06:54 PM EDT

French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday called the fires ravaging the Amazon rainforest an "international crisis" that must be discussed at the upcoming Group of Seven (G-7) summit.

"Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rain forest - the lungs which produces 20% of our planet’s oxygen - is on fire. It is an international crisis," Macron tweeted.

"Members of the G7 Summit, let's discuss this emergency first order in two days!"




Macron is hosting this year's summit of economic powers in Biarritz, France, meaning that he is responsible for setting the agenda.

Right now, in this moment, there is nothing more important.

3. No doubt that

"I alone can fix this" Stable genius will have the answers, never fear. He does not solve problems, he creates them.

4. Wishing my tears and tears from all those affected or disturbed by this

could be used to put out the fires.

Such a sad image, we’re seeing our own demise. 😢

6. BUSINESS AS EXPECTED

Money.
They have it.
They want more of it.

Alliances with "aggro + -business" and "rich elites" willing to turn Earth's resources into cold cash
are 'Sins Against Nature'.

The only practical defense is our unity and opposition to these greedy moneyed monopolies around
the globe.

Pray. We need all the help we can get to oppose the scourge of international avarice growing
over all of us.

PS: Here in the USA we need to change WH and Senate leadership ASAP! Vote 2020!

7. 👏 👍 More courage than what we're seeing

From Washington. Now we need tons of pressure from International communities to land on Bolsonaro.

8. Macron is an important leader. I wish the G7 had simply uninvited tRump.

Whatever progress they try to make he'll obstruct and bloviate against.
