Brazilian President Jair Bolsenaro criticizes Leonardo DiCaprio for paying Non-Profit Organizations indulge in Amazon Rainforest Burn.
On Friday, Brazilian President Bolsenaro without showing up any proof against Leonardo DiCaprio claims to be partly responsible for Amazon Rainforest Burning.
In August 2019, Earth’s Lungs Amazon got on fire. Even after many efforts, Brazilian and US government failed to control the fire. Tribes living in the jungle blamed Non-profit organisations for the massive fire.
Bolsenaro blames American Actor DiCaprio responsible for funding the organizations who wanted to earn from Environmental Campaigns.
The Presidents tells Brasilia supporters, “DiCaprio is a cool guy, isn’t he? Giving money to set Amazon on Fire.”
DiCaprio’s Earth Alliance (environmental organization) pledged to help with $5 Million for the cause. Later, the actor and the committed environmentalist’s pledge to be unfulfilled as stated by investigators statement.
The statement read, “while worthy of support, we did not fund the organizations targeted. The future of these irreplaceable ecosystems is at stake and I am proud to stand with the groups protecting them.”
Some member from Bolsenaro administration argues that these environmental laws and civil society groups are hindering their economic growth.
The criticisms take police on the action and followed DiCaprio and other environmental activists on the raid. In which 4 volunteers were arrested. later the court orders their release.
This is no way the first time that the Brazilian President has suggested, that Non-Profit Organizations are harming Amazon Rainforest.
Bolsonaro accuses the head of Government Space Research Institute, Ricardo Galvro, for manipulating with the governmental documents.
When the annual deforestation report was presented in November, three months after the fire, deforestation has increased the doubled digit percent. The government acknowledges deforestation has increased year-by-year.
As the President didn’t show up any proofs, DiCaprio has also not stated anything misleading or misguiding.
After the President’s blame Brazilians commented in favour of the celeb and some commented against the celeb.
