The photo posted by the French president, but also by many personalities, to denounce the fires which ravage now the Amazonian forest, was taken by a photographer ... died in 2003.

Emmanuel Macron, like many personalities who wanted to denounce fires in the Amazon, shared on Twitter an image unrelated to the fires in question, contributing to propagate some misinformation.

"Our house burns, literally, the Amazon, the lung of our planet that produces 20% of our oxygen, is on fire, it's an international crisis G7 members, see you in two days to talk about this emergency ", tweeted the French president, about the summit of this weekend in Biarritz. But a reverse search of the photo used in her post shows that she is from the American Loren McIntyre, known for his work for National Geographic and died in 2003.

If we do not know the exact year of this shot, we can say that she is therefore at least 16 years old. In response to this tweet, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro accused Thursday Emmanuel Macron of having "a colonialist mentality". He noted in passing that President Macron posted "fake photos".

Serial errors

Madonna, Ricky Martin, Cristiano Ronaldo, Novak Djokovic and Chile's President Sebastian Piñera are among the personalities who have published old photographs to warn about the situation in the Amazon. Thus, actor Leonardo DiCaprio has published two photos that are not relevant. One is the same as that shared by Emmanuel Macron and the second is from 2016. It was taken in the Peruvian Amazon, Puerto Maldonado, while Peru is currently not affected by the fires and that the actor speaks only of Brazil in his message.

#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: The lungs of the Earth are in flames. The Brazilian Amazon-home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species-has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year-staggering 84% increase over the last year period (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an invitation to loggers and farmers in January.

The Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo has sounded the alarm on Instagram about "the Amazon jungle that produces more than 20% of the world's oxygen and burns for 3 weeks." But the photo accompanying his message was taken on March 29, 2013 by Lauro Alves, from the Brazilian agency RBS, in the non-Amazonian state of Rio Grande do Sul.
