Taken in 1989 apparently, it makes them feel good though....

Using a stock photo which accurately represents current conditions is not exactly "fake" but should be appropriately labeled.

Here is some actually current info from NASA

Isn't Sky News the Fox equivalent down under?

Here's data from Brazil's National Institute for Space Research:
- They actually started recording data in 1998.
- If current fire trends continue at this pace, it'll be the second or third worst year for fires in Brazil.
- More than half for this year are reported in the rain forest.

Hopefully we can all agree that fires burning in the rain forest aren't good regardless if Madonna or Macron used the wrong photo.

You've really caught out that notorious news channel, "Madonna."

The link I posted reported that the fires are around farmlands etc not the forest.
Looking at the NASA image would seem to agree with that as all the fires are in cleared areas.

I'd hardly use Sky News as my source for accurate information.
The fires are being used to deforest the Amazon to make more room for agricultural development.

President Jair Bolsonaroís administration, which had pledged to open up the Amazon to more development, has sought to shift attention away from deforestation. Bolsonaro initially pointed a finger at NGOs opposing his policies for allegedly intentionally setting fires in protest, without giving any evidence to back his claim. In August, he fired the director of the National Institute for Space Research over a dispute over data it released showing the sharp uptick in deforestation thatís taken place since Bolsonaro took office. On August 20th, Brazilís Minister of the Environment Ricardo Salles tweeted that dry weather, wind, and heat caused the fires to spread so widely. But even during the dry season, large fires arenít a natural phenomenon in the Amazonís tropical ecosystem.
