Is Bolsonaro right when he says that the fires in the Amazon are none of the rest of the world's business?

Update:

What is his international obligation when it comes to protecting the Amazon rainforest? Do all countries have an international duty to protect their ecosystems? Is the Amazon a special case that deserves special treatment?

    We need the forest, but can we stop this guy? HOW? Don't the Japanese still kill whales? Isn't some country (Africa?) bringing back elephant killing? I think the sooner human beings blow themselves to hell and let the earth recuperate THE BETTER. Its still got 5 billion years, 4.5 to be liveable , CAN IT STILL BE SAVED without humans beings?

    Nobody stepped in when Australia was on fire. Or California.

    The rainforest has been set on fire every year for decades so this is nothing new - plus reporters are using very old stock photos - some over 30 years old!

    What did the rest of the world do when America was clearing lands of indigenous populations and clearing woodland exactly the same to build cattle ranches?

    - Nothing!

    - So how can America complain when another country does the same thing?

    No. He's an egotist. Similar to the Donald.
