I feel like the main issue here is that people are over exaggerating it. You have people acting like that it's suddenly the end of the world. It's horrible that it's burning, but keep in mind that it's been like this for a while. It just started to get attention recently.
I agree, it's not the end of the world, it's been going on for a long time. It's just one of the first time that there has been major media coverage on the burning for a while.

I can agree that the burning of the rainforest has been overexaggerated, but that DOES NOT mean climate change is not an urgent and important issue.



By the way, to whoever is reading this, chances are that you like steak. I LIKE STEAK, TOO. But if we can ALL cut down on our steak consumption, then the industry will produce less (with less demand from us consumers). PLEASE help us protect the environment by eating less beef. I'm not saying don't eat meat though - consider eating chicken more often. Chickens use only about 20% of the resources and land cows consume. Eating less beef and more chicken is cheaper for your family, and it means less methane (a potent GHG) being released into the atmosphere. Let's save this earth with one less steak at a time ;)

Thought about putting this in the video game thread but I guess this is more political...

What is your thought on the issue of an American based company reflecting authoritarian values?
Right now both Twitter and Reddit are up in arms over this and the gaming community at large is not very pleased...

I'm not as much of a gamer as I'd perhaps like to be, but I really dislike video games (and really anything that doesn't have to do with politics) becoming politicized.

No. The disease and I have no connection or correlation whatsoever.
