If rain forests are the lungs of the planet, Bolsonara's showing he doesn't care. He's in power to protect Brazil's .01%, their holdings and their wealth.

Bolsonara's another far rightist like Trump, who's pushing to open the Tongass Forest in Alaska, another rain forest, to resource extractors.

Add in Putin, one more far right leader who continues increasing his and his oligarch's wealth through resource extraction and it becomes clear the global far right care nothing for anything other than making themselves and their ilk even richer at the expense of the environment, current generations, and the generations to come.

Then there's Xi in China leading a nation using even more resources.

To the far right and predatory corporatists, conservation is just another dirty word.

These jerks are the greatest problems facing planet Earth today. They are neglecting their duties to benefit their pompous vain selves. They are a cancer.
