Topline: Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday said the country lacks the resources needed to fight the fires raging in the Amazon just a week after the leader said the government doesn t need foreign aid to protect the rainforest, continuing Bolsanaro s hard line policies and rhetoric that scientists say may have contributed to the fires in the first place.Bolsonaro told reporters, according to Reuters: The Amazon is bigger than Europe, how will you fight criminal fires in such an area? We do not have the resources for that. But at the same time, Bolsonaro said last week Brazil doesn t need foreign aid money after Germany and Norway froze funds because he refused to put the money toward helping the rainforest, the Washington Post reported.Fires broke out in the Amazon rainforest earlier this month and have been burning for weeks. Scientists and environmental activists say Bolsonaro s encouragement of deforestation likely played a part in starting the fires, despite his insistence without any evidence that NGOs are responsible.

Elon Musk is pushing a new idea to make the Mars atmosphere more hospitable to humans. The Tesla CEO believes that it makes more sense to place thousands of satellites (essentially as giant mirrors) to reflect Sun's rays, rather than nuking the poles of the planet. Musk has been positing the Nuke Mars idea for the last few years and in fact, he very recently showcased Nuke Mars t shirts on Twitter. But now, it looks like he may have had a change of heart. Might make sense to have thousands of solar reflector satellites ???? to warm Mars vs artificial suns (tbd), Musk tweeted on Tuesday.

It is rumored that the film 's previous director, Danny Boyle, left the project because he wanted to kill off James Bond in the end, a decision that Eon wouldn 't stand for. No Time to Die fittingly feels like a politely passive aggressive rebuttal to Boyle, and a promise that just because this is Craig 's last outing it doesn 't mean that the character will die. This also isn 't the first time the word ”die ” has appeared in a Bond film. Moore confronted death of the voodoo variety in his first appearance as Bond in Live and Let Die (1973), and Pierce Brosnan double dipped on death in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) and Die Another Day (2002). As far as titles go, No Time to Die is about as Bond as you can get without sticking ”gold ” somewhere in there. The rereleased plot synopsis, attached to the press announcement for the title, hints at a more retro approach with the retired Bond, living in Jamaica, being drawn back into active service by Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) in order to rescue a kidnapped scientist who leads them to a ”mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. ” Though he isn 't mentioned in the press release, Christoph Waltz was confirmed to return as Bond 's nemesis, Blofeld, just last month. The only thing that 's missing to fully sell No Time to Die as the ultimate retro Bond film is confirmation of a giant Ken Adam inspired villain base. What 's interesting about all of these details is that when Craig 's tenure as Bond began in Casino Royale (2006), great strides were made to modernize the character and help him regain his cool in a world where Jason Bourne was the popular action hero, and Hollywood, feeling the success of Batman Begins (2005), was just starting to understand how profitable a reboot could be, at least for a time. But now, three Bond entries and 15 years later, and audiences have grown increasingly partial to nostalgia, arguably to an even greater degree than what the series most successful entry so far, Skyfall, provided back in 2012.
