Brazilian President Says “Poop Every Other Day” To Save The Planet

Brazilian President Says "Poop Every Other Day" To Save The Planet

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has an unusual solution to environmental crises: Eat less, therefore poop less.


近日,巴西总统雅伊尔·博索纳罗(Jair Bolsonaro) 在面对记者提问时提议,为了保护环境,人们应该 “少吃点儿”、“隔天排便”。 Bolsonaro 总统的这个提议是对记者 “如何将农业发展与环境保护相结合” 这个问题的回答。


因为官方统计数据显示亚马逊森林被砍伐的速度加快,这位总统最近受到了猛烈的抨击,但他回应抨击的方式却是裁掉了公布此数据的负责人,指责其夸大了问题严重性。


于是,有记者向总统提出森林砍伐和农业发展是造成温室效应的很大一部分原因,总统就此回答:“大家少吃一点就够了。你提到环境污染,只要大家每隔一天排便就够了,这对整个世界都有好处。”


科学家发现,自 Bolsonaro 总统今年一月上任以来,亚马逊森林被采伐的速度越来越快。巴西有关当局的数据显示,与去年同期相比,今年六月森林砍伐率提高了88%,而砍伐森林最大的原因是为了给放牧开辟新的牧场。


在过去的几十年里,前几届政府都通过罚款等措施成功降低了森林砍伐率,但自 Bolsonaro 总统上任,越来越少的人因为破坏环境被判刑或罚款。 且不说这位总统面对指责时的态度如何。

Recently, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro proposed in the face of reporters' questions that in order to protect the environment, people should “eat less” and “poop every other day”. This proposal by President Bolsonaro is an answer to the question of how to combine agricultural development with environmental protection.


As the official statistical data showed that the rate of deforestation in Amazon forest has been increasing in speed, the president was attacked violently, but his response to the attack was to dismiss the person responsible for publishing the data and accused the person of exaggerating the seriousness of the problem.


Therefore, a reporter asked the president that deforestation and agricultural development were responsible for the greenhouse effect. The president replied: “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”


Scientists have found that Amazon forests have been cut at an accelerated rate since President Bolsonaro took office in January. According to data from Brazilian authorities, the deforestation rate increased by 88% in June this year compared to the same period last year, and the biggest reason for the deforestation is to create new pastures for grazing.


Over the past few decades, previous governments have succeeded in reducing deforestation rates through some actions such as fines, but since President Bolsonaro took office, fewer and fewer people have been sentenced or fined for environmental damage. Not to mention the attitude of the president facing such accusations.



Baru-baru ini, Presiden Brasil Jair Bolsonaro mengusulkan dalam menghadapi pertanyaan wartawan bahwa untuk melindungi lingkungan, orang harus “makan lebih sedikit” dan “buang air besar setiap hari”. Saran oleh Presiden Bolsonaro ini merupakan jawaban untuk pertanyaan tentang bagaimana menggabungkan pengembangan pertanian dengan perlindungan lingkungan.


Karena data statistik resmi menunjukkan bahwa laju deforestasi di hutan Amazon semakin meningkat, presiden diserang dengan keras, tetapi tanggapannya terhadap serangan itu adalah memecat orang yang bertanggung jawab untuk menerbitkan data dan menuduh orang itu melebih-lebihkan keseriusan masalah.


Oleh karena itu, seorang reporter bertanya kepada presiden bahwa penebangan hutan dan pembangunan pertanian bertanggung jawab atas efek rumah kaca. Presiden menjawab: “Cukup makan sedikit saja. Jika Anda membicarakan polusi lingkungan, cukup dengan buang air besar satu kali setiap dua hari akan lebih baik untuk dunia”


Para ilmuwan telah menemukan bahwa penebangan hutan Amazon menjadi lebih cepat sejak Presiden Bolsonaro menjabat pada bulan Januari. Menurut data dari otoritas Brasil, laju deforestasi meningkat sebesar 88% pada Juni tahun ini dibandingkan periode yang sama tahun lalu, dan alasan terbesar deforestasi adalah untuk menciptakan padang rumput baru untuk penggembalaan.


Selama beberapa dekade terakhir, pemerintah sebelumnya telah berhasil mengurangi laju deforestasi melalui beberapa tindakan seperti denda, tetapi sejak Presiden Bolsonaro menjabat, semakin sedikit orang yang dihukum atau didenda karena kerusakan lingkungan. Belum lagi sikap presiden menghadapi tuduhan seperti itu.
