  • So, the G7 won't be having a communique from the leaders at the end. This will be the first time. They won't even be trying for a consensus because they know Trump is too mercurial, making him incapable of signing anything meaningful.

    Usually, months go into negotiating a 'final communique', and the actual G7 (or G8) allows the leaders to discuss a few trade details, security details, pose for pictures, etc... But no attempt was made this time because Trump stormed out of the last one with hurt feelings, and insulting the various world leaders the US should really be nice to.

    So, the only thing to look for will be how idiotic Trump is this time, and if the others can reach a few behind-the-scenes deals.

    Canada will be trying to get a reciprocal trade deal with the UK (dealing with Johnson), that could kick in the day the UK finally leaves Europe. (I don't think the 'Brexit' forces really told the Brits that they day the UK leaves Europe, they won't have any active trade deals period.) I'm sure Britain can sleep well knowing their fate is in Johnson's hands...
    There's nothing wrong with the dream, my friend, the problem lies with the dreamer.

                            The people who set them on fire (if it ws set on fire) don't aim for a Hoax but aim at illegally getting more land for agriculture.

                            The result will be:
                            Lots of rain forest gone (together with its capability to turn CO2 into O2, together with its richness in species (am ong them possible undiscovered one which may have medical properties that could have been exploited))

                            And the people who set the forect on fire will be able to farm the soil for maybe 2-3 years till erosion and agriculture have depleted the soil so much that it becomes almost infertile (and not very much will grow on it anymore)

                            "Good for you" that you are not really worry about something (willfully destroying the green lung of the planet) that may have a profound future effect on the future of the survival of mankind no matter where they live

                              I don't care because I am not easily manipulated by the global elitists that can afford to be worried about fires thousands of miles away. I have a lot more things to worry about. As a general rule I don't care what they tell me to care about because it's always at best a distraction. At worst it's a conspiracy against me. I have nothing against farmers in Brazil.

                              And "It's the worst fires since 2013!"

                              • With the fire season in the Amazon approaching its midpoint, scientists using NASA satellites to track fire activity have confirmed an increase in the number and intensity of fires in the Brazilian Amazon in 2019, making it the most active fire year in that region since 2010.
