Um NYT says satellite images show they're just normal agricultural fires. Been happening every year for decades. Farmers prepping the fields for spring planting. 2013 and 2017 were more extensive than this. Apparently, the only difference this year is the Prime Minister.

The guy can spend his own money however he wishes. I have no problem with that.

Ok, let's see if I understand this. Every year there are fires in the rainforest. Most of those are actually not in the forest itself but controlled fires on farmlands. This year isn't even the worst compared with the last 5 years. Because Bolsonaro is now the president and the unhinged Left needs to make an issue, where there is none to have a stick to beat him with and virtue signal at the same time. That virtue signaling now makes people donate money to indigenous people around the rainforest. Presumably that will include farmers that actually burned their fields. So to close the circle, the people that want to attack Bolsonaro are now also pumping money in his economy!
