I'm so used to seeing the UK at the bottom of these charts like in the Eurovision song contest, it's quite refreshing to her part way up a chart. :D

What is the point of this comparison, when its directly proportional to the size of the country. Or geographical position that might affect the amount of forests.

Brazil will be at the bottom the way things are going.

Meanwhile Russia's forests will grow because the population is shrinking.

Most of the Russian forests are in Siberia where trees grow extremely slowly due to the cold climate.
There is heavy logging going on there to supply China with lumber.
The previous government of Brazil led by Lula da Silva made fantastic progress stopping industrial logging, protecting indigenous peoples of the forest improving the lot of the people and making huge strides in education and literacy.
A great example of the pink tide of progress.
The CIA soon put a stop to that and installed the monster Bolsonaro. (A repeat of what they did in 1965).
Just as they have been doing in central and south America for decades.
As recently in Ecuador, Nicaragua and coming soon in Venezuela.

#3 No, the nonsense about the fires is fake news. Though slightly above the ten-year average for number of fires, what's going on down there is entirely normal. Deforestation, which is the real danger, is still on the decline.

#5 who said anything about fires? Is that you Trump?

Basically none of the forest in Denmark is older than 212 years. In 1805 the king ordered new forests be planted. And shortly after in 1807 the British came in and bombarded Copenhagen

#6 You might take a hint by the comment number I referenced. Brazil contains much of the Amazon rain forest. There were erroneous articles all over the world recently claiming disastrous levels of forest fire in the Amazon. The comment thus alludes to this fake news, suggesting that Brazil will have a lot fewer trees.

Honestly, I really shouldn't have to explain this. And Trump? Are you going the way of Austin?

#8 Indeed. From the NY Times "Much of the land that is burning was not old-growth rain forest, but land that had already been cleared of trees and set for agricultural use."

Brazil has a poverty rate of 26% and 8% of that is in extreme poverty. I find it ironic that 1st world countries cry over a poor country's attempt at bettering itself. Again, the media and enviro-nazis discredit themselves by spreading Fake photos and propaganda during a fire event that seems like it's, for the most part, a normal occurrence.

Should we educate people and encourage proper management of resources? Absolutely. But we should tread lightly when telling other countries how to manage their resources and keep them "poor".

Maybe we should start moving manufacturing plants from China to South America? We ditch those POS's from China that kill 50,000 or more of our citizens with their Fentanyl and we help stem the tide of immigrants barging over our borders. WIN-WIN!

#8 and #10. Quite so. The hysteria surrounding this is breathtaking. Here's a snippet from The Spectator which makes interesting reading:

Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese expert on forests who also plays football, so when he shared a picture online of a recent forest fire in the Amazon, it went viral. Perhaps he was in a rush that day to get out of the laboratory to football training, because it later transpired that the photograph was actually taken in 2013, not this year, and in southern Brazil, nowhere near the Amazon.

But at least his picture was only six years old. Emmanuel Macron, another forest ecologist who moonlights as president of France, claimed that ‘the Amazon rainforest — the lungs which produce 20 per cent of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire!’ alongside a picture that was 20 years old. A third bioscientist, who goes under the name of Madonna and sings, capped both their achievements by sharing a 30-year-old picture.

#11 LOL. There was one of a burned or dead rabbit from the Malibu fires out here on the West Coast in the LA area.

I haven't fact checked it but it does seem in line with all of the other Amazon hyperbole regarding it's 20% of the worlds "lungs" (ie: oxygen). I heard it was closer to 6% and the flip side of that coin is dense moist forests also produce a crap load of CO2 as well as methane (from termites) so it might actually be closer to break even.

I truly had hoped the Left and the media had learned from the 2016 election and calmed down their rhetoric, but they're operating on turbo right now.

Several sources were just saying Trump would lose the election to ANY of the top 6 Democrats. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D
Win? It feels like they've given up on 2020 completely but their media just has to keep pushing false hope to their readers. Currently Trumps slaughter score is about 300%.

The majority of the Russian forest are in Siberia where trees become amazingly gradually because of the cool atmosphere. There is overwhelming logging going on there to supply China with a stumble.
The past administration of Brazil drove by Lula da Silva gained phenomenal ground halting modern logging, securing indigenous people groups of the forest improving the part of the individuals and making gigantic walks in training and education.
