    See if I can get this up before the power goes out again. In case anyone's wondering what's really going on down here.

    Be forewarned, contains some colorful Aussie farmer language.

    Bedwetters come up with that kind of claptrap every time they get caught with their pants down. Truth is, however the fires got started, the extent of the devastation this time out is the direct result of conservationist efforts to save the planet. There would have been far more fire breaks to curb it's spread were it not for their government funded nonsense.

    Hey, believe whatever you want mate. Me, I'm not 10,000 miles away streaming the news. I live here. Seen it all before firsthand. Even shot some of the footage in that video I posted. So I'm just gonna call 'em as I see 'em.

    Cheers

    I'd argue — or wonder — if Australia is a nation of arsonists? :confused: And whatever the cause, these effects were forecast a decade ago as a result of global warming.

    But the picture is never quite as black-and-white as we'd like, and it's a pity that well-meaning ignorance often carries so much clout, as sometimes, it seems to me, it's a case of '(middle-class liberal) urban utopia v rural reality' — so I can sympathise with Aussie's position.

    I recall the devastation to woodland in the wake of the 'Great Storm' of 87. The media turned out in force to broadcast the 'irreparable damage' to our ancient and, to the affluent urban middle-classes, near-sacred woodlands. In the middle of it all, one forester was talking with a wry smile: "Well a lot of good will come out of this. it gives us a chance to perform some much needed forest management in areas where the woodlands have suffered under the 'hands off' policies ..."

    Those 'sacred groves' had, of course, been coppiced ever since the Bronze Age; it's only recently that 'preservation' means 'do not touch under any circumstance' which is precisely the wrong policy.

    On the other hand, the rural voice champions fox-hunting with dogs as an acceptable means of pest control ('the foxes love it,' one spokeperson informed us) and badger-culling as a means of preventing bovine TB (which so far it has failed to do).

    Hey ho ... so it goes ....

    Fox News, lol.
    I think global warming is one of the effects of over population.

    The big population problems are in countries where people have far more to worry about than what they do with their plastic and how they can get energy. If they live in the Amazon, they burn down trees to get a couple of years soy bean production, then the soil and trees are gone forever. But it's their country, they can do what they like with it? Right?

    So in an age of global problems, that require global management and sensible global government sharing and unity, what do we get instead?

    We get a world split into new nationalisms. We get Trump and Johnson and Bolsanaro, and -- you name it. That's who they'll be voting for.

    It's sad but it's true, imo ...

    EDIT
    I have a lot of relatives in Australia, and so I constantly check the 'Fires Near Me' website for latest updates:

    This is not a parody. The potus really said this in 2011. About Obama, lol. So now we know the truth?



    It would be so funny. If it wasn't so sad ...
