It is heartbreaking for a nature lover like myself. I have been in so many national parks and I am dreading to see how bad the final outcome is going to be.Its beyond bad, beyond comprehension. Half a billion or more animals dead, threat of extinction of some species, its horrible!!
Wildfires have turned southeast Australia into a charred, apocalyptic nightmare, and threaten to wipe out entire species of animals.www.cnbc.com
There haven't been massive casualties, that is probably a major factor. To be on international news it seems that is necessary.I’ve barely seen any mention of it anywhere tbh except for prepper groups i have on Facebook.. I was just telling my husband last night I can’t believe there’s so much silence on it. I read half a billion animals have died in the fires. That’s insane. The fact that there’s crickets about it even more so.
Hope everyone in Australia is staying safe.
Maybe one way of looking at glass as half-full is to see that IF all these real crises are here for a while it might put ridiculous identity politics in correct perspective now?It must be scary too being so close to it all for you, its crazy levels of destruction I don't see how this isn't the biggest global issue at the very least on par with the current situation of impending war with Iran. Such a shitty shitty start to the year.
Maybe my glass half empty perspective would see that they would just take advantage of the fact that everybody's looking elsewhere and they will just use that as another opportunity to serve themselves, sneak new laws in while nobody's looking, line their own pockets etcMaybe one way of looking at glass as half-full is to see that IF all these real crises are here for a while it might put ridiculous identity politics in correct perspective now?
I have said half-jokingly that we need a war to get some topics out of the limelight and force people to toughen up.
I bet psychologists would have umpteen theories on that.Here's hoping they catch the arsonists who've started almost half the fires.
With people deliberately lighting almost half the bushfires this season, experts are calling for more research to better understand arsonists – and stop them before their ideas catch alight.www.news.com.au
Here's also hoping that bushfire season goes back to the normal amount of infernos every year. Unless half of those fires are also started by other arsonists, in which case I hope they're also stopped.
Why are there so many arsonists starting wildfires?
How bad does bushfire season usually get? I've seen maps of Australia right now with all these little fire icons all over, but what do those maps usually look like this time of year?
Have arsonists always initiated half the fires, or is it only in the last few decades?
I ask because if I were a desperate enough climate alarmist, I'd be extremely tempted to start extra fires in order to scare the world into climate change action. I would bet a lot of money, if a bookie would ever take a bet like this, that at least one climate activist will be caught setting a fire. If not more.
Sure, as passive observers all the nation's arsonists must be perversely delighted. But there are dozens of arsonists who literally themselves started half of these fires. They must be feeling a special satanic joy right now. Aside from however many arsonists started fires for the "good cause" of climate change awareness, although they would probably feel a deranged pride, too.The monsoon was extremely delayed this year.

The wet season normally starts in the Northern Territory in November. It has only just started. It made the bush bone dry and extremely hot. Fires in rainforests have been destroyed in my state of Queensland as a result. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/nov/24/world-heritage-queensland-rainforest-burned-for-10-days-and-almost-no-one-noticed
Of course any arsonist who craves seeing a fire's destruction of property has a dream situation right now.
True. The people with excessive power always seem to find some strings to pull to get any major crisis to work in their favour.Maybe my glass half empty perspective would see that they would just take advantage of the fact that everybody's looking elsewhere and they will just use that as another opportunity to serve themselves, sneak new laws in while nobody's looking, line their own pockets etc
I am sure there are some who would love to do justice to the arsonist. Locking up arsonists for a LONG time so they can't reoffend would be almost as good. Criminals in jail would do it for us if they could.Sure, as passive observers all the nation's arsonists must be perversely delighted.

Does Australia have the death penalty? (Looking it up) Nope. Even though over half the country would support it for terrorist acts. Well, maybe some of you guys can catch one of the arsonists yourselves and apply some vigilante justice. Torture him or her. Burn at the stake. Make an example.
As for a glass-one-fifth-full perspective, at least there won't be as much fuel for the fires next year.
"They’ve done everything in their power to make these catastrophic fires more likely."
I know it's probably just a radical politician hyperbolizing, but...it kind of sounds like both the projection of an arsonist (substitute "I've" and "mine") and also the victim-blaming of a terrorist ("You brought this on yourself.")
Interesting that Green regulations made controlled burns harder. Interesting that Greens opposed that carbon tax legislation. Seems like they're pretty counterproductive. Like a pattern. Maybe they really do want climate change destruction. They're socialists more than environmentalists, and climate change is the best leverage that they'll ever have to install their agenda.
I hope some conservatives in your equivalent of the FBI will investigate to see if any Greens with firefighting or arson backgrounds have been doing a lot of travelling lately. Then again, if the brush is so dry, it probably wouldn't take an expert.
The Australian Bushfires are part of the UN’s Agenda 2030. These fires have been planned for years and serve multiple agendas.
The global elite want to force everyone into SMART cities (which are the highly surveillance tech city dystopias of the future) and they will use climate change as the excuse. Added benefits include; Controlling all human behaviour in the name of “Climate protection.”
This plan is so cynical and brilliant. Our social engineers are true Masters of Reality.
