I would tend to believe this more than the global warming argument
Yahoo! News - Smoke Pollution Makes for Stronger Storms - Study: "Smoke drifting from burning forests in the Amazon is affecting the climate across the entire continent -- drying up rain but making the storms that do develop much more violent than usual, scientists reported on Thursday. "

These effects on a smaller scale are much more easily measurable than global effects over a period of time. I am sure the same thing is probably going on in China. There are plenty of reasons why mass forests burnings are a bad idea and I hope Brazil and China decide to do something about it, but they probably won't.
