'Poop every other day' to protect the environment (?)

I'm pretty sure I know what he's full of, so that probably couldn't work in his case.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-49304358?fbclid=IwAR0KeOR0L_zK-fPhqZn6TKnGGi6Pm4dc6KRwBjPnUILJOmaF5BgxQvnBWMI

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has suggested people should "poop every other day" as a way to save the planet.

His comment came in answer to a journalist who asked him how to combine agricultural development and protecting the environment.

Mr Bolsonaro recently came under fire after official data showed an increase in deforestation in the Amazon.

He then sacked the head of the agency that reported the increase, accusing it of lying about the problem's scale.

Mr Bolsonaro's comment came after the journalist quoted reports saying deforestation and agriculture were responsible for a quarter of the planet's greenhouse effect.

"It's enough to eat a little less. You talk about environmental pollution. It's enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world," he said.

Scientists say the Amazon has suffered losses at an accelerated rate since Mr Bolsonaro took office in January, with policies that favour development over conservation.

Brazil's space agency data showed an 88% increase in deforestation in June compared with the same month a year ago.

As the largest rainforest in the world, the Amazon is a vital carbon store that slows down the pace of global warming.

4. It's not really bizarre if you see it as in-your-face contempt for the environment

with an absolute refusal to answer the question seriously. Bonkers? Nope. Bosonaro is a pure evil motherfucker and proud of it.

10. They're two of a kind.

Trump is trying to make Bolsonaro's Brazil a major non-NATO ally, after he suggested giving it NATO membership.

Bolsonaro's quip was his own kind of owning the libs if not rolling coal.

8. Actually there's a 5 part DW documentary that I would highly recommend, which partly

explains what's going on in the destruction of the Amazon, at a people level.

The first one is
