    Loss of a significant standing carbon reserve, and loss of the world's total capacity to absorb excess carbon dioxide. Not to a huge extent, on a global scale, but every bit helps (or hurts).

    Also, of course, there's the more local environmental damage. Probable species extinction (rain forests tend to be unusually rich in species, often quite local endemic ones), loss of forest cover leading to problems with water management, and so on.

    It has zero effect.

    Everything you have read or heard about the Amazon fires in the mainstream media is Fake News.

    Amazon fires are close to average from 2003-2018. (Period of MODIS operation.)

    Deforestation is getting better, not worse.

    The Amazon rain forest is a closed system that uses all its own oxygen and carbon dioxide.

    It is probably next to nothing.

    It is a flat out lie that Amazon produces 20 percent of the O2. It doesn't. It produces about 16% of the terrestrial plants but that doesn't take into account the amount produced by Phytoplankton which drops the O2 the Amazon produces to 9%. It also doesn't take into account the amount the Amazon uses which essentially brings to even. The lies of the left that their willingness to believe and spread is a like a disease and I'm am sick of their ignorance and idiocy.

    It probably goes beyond the effect on the climate, the Amazon actually produces around 20% of the global supply of oxygen.

    As far as climate goes the Amazon has been absorbing about 2.2billion tons of Co2 or about 10% of human emissions. So a drastic reduction in these trees due to fire, would have a double effect, lots of Co2 added due to the fires themselves and fewer trees to continue absorbing human Co2 emissions.

    Fractionally more CO2 in the atmosphere, fractionally less capacity for the planet s fauna to convert CO2 into oxygen. On a global scale though this is pretty insignificant.
