Climate Change In Australia

Eighty years ago, massive fires in Victoria forced people to flee to the beach.

01 Feb 1939 – BUSHFIRE DAMAGE. – Trove

But the climate has changed over the past 80 years.

Climate Terrorism perhaps? It seems way too coordinated to be 200 random decisions.

    There are 2 main groups of people almost certainly lighting and inciting the lighting of wildfires around the world that the MSM will not ever mention.

    ISIS terrorists employing pyro-terorism as recommended in ‘the manual’.

    Eco-crackpots, individuals and groups like XR/NGOs, trying to further their political cause and ‘prove’ climate change.

    • GeologyJim says:

      Arsonists have long been suspected in southern CA fires during Santa Ana winds, and I believe several have actually been apprehended

      I am not surprised at these acts (in isolation), given the perverse motives for excitement, notoriety, vengence, and the like

      But arson of this magnitude really crosses the line into truly sick, deviant behavior – – especially with the implication (and believability) of group coordination

      It meets my definition of terrorism. This goes beyond “shouting FIRE in a crowded theater” to actually lighting the fire and blocking the exits. Despicable!

    • T. Erickson says:

      I seem to remember Tony posting a story about fires in the Amazon rainforest being started by an NGO. No reason it can’t happen here also.

  2. John F. Hultquist says:

    In AU, the response of authorities to arson will be interesting.
    Using the wrong word when mentioning a neighbor can land one in a lot of trouble.
    The arsonist can say “climate change”, and the MSM media will give her/him/it a medal.
    Insert “cynical” tag (face) here.

    • James Snook says:

      I wonder how they measure ‘intensity’?

    • Gerald Machnee says:

      Of course someone has to get their 2 cents in:
      **Even as the acreage consumed by wildfires declined, James Randerson, University of California Irvine earth sciences professor, said climate change has played a role by making wildfires more intense.

      “There are really two separate trends,” Mr. Randerson said. “Even as the global burned area number has declined because of what is happening in savannas, we are seeing a significant increase in the intensity and reach of fires in the western United States because of climate change.”**

      But James is short sighted and cannot see back to the 1930’s when there were many times more fires and acres burned as well as intense fires with the 1930’s version of “climate change”.

      • James Snook says:

        My comment was meant to be sarcastic. There is currently no measure of ‘intensity’, but I’m sure that its only a matter of time before the alarmists come up with one such as ‘Hiroshimas per acre’.🤡

      • David A says:

        The recent intensity increase is due to poor Forrest management; overprotection sans clearing and controlled burns and creating favorable Bark beetle conditions.

    • Robertv says:

      While the rest of the world believes all Australia is burning 99,5 procent of Australia is not.

  3. arn says:

    Those fires as as real as 90% of the refugees.
    A well orchestrated show.
    If you want to destroy countries and create radical change
    you need to do some radical stuff
    to “convince” people and proof your point.
    Salinsky 2.0.

    That”s why so many Reichtags fires are happening now.

    “Debunking” reality
    and artificial chaos
    have always been very effective methods.

  4. Mostly bad land management and arson are the cause of the fires. Constant infiltration by the Greens as to how land and forest is managed – or NOT managed. Cutting funding and personel for forest management. 12 people, down from 72, to look after an area the size of Tasmania and funding cut by $100M. After thousands of years of burnoffs to control the inevitable fires, that was stopped and dry ‘fuel’ allowed to build up over a couple of decades. What do these morons expect? Now they are reaping what they sowed. But they’ll blame CC of course, blame everyone else.

  5. Gator says:

    Someone should check Michael Mann’s pockets for lighter fluid and lighters. If he is not above destroying his own vocation of climate science, for his agenda, what else is safe?

    Is there another source of 200 investigations of arsons?

  7. richard says:

    How the Aborigines kept the big fires in check.

    “Before Aboriginal people populated the Australian continent some 40,000 to 60,000 years ago, the major cause of fires would have been lightning. Aboriginal people learnt to harness the naturally recurring fire caused by lightning and other sources to their advantage, which resulted in skilful burning of landscapes for many different purposes.

    Fire was used to:

    make access easier through thick and prickly vegetation
    maintain a pattern of vegetation to encourage new growth and attract game for hunting
    encourage the development of useful food plants, for cooking, warmth, signalling and spiritual reasons.
    Early European explorers and settlers commented on the Aboriginal people’s familiarity with fire, and the presence of fire in the landscape continually throughout the year. Most of the fires were relatively low intensity and did not burn large areas.

    This constant use of fire by Aboriginal people as they went about their daily lives most likely resulted in a fine grained mosaic of different vegetation and fuel ages across the landscape.

    As a result, large intense bushfires were uncommon.

    Fire is a significant part of Aboriginal culture and the knowledge of its use has been retained by many Aboriginal families as their culture and values are shared between generations. Karla Wongi – Fire Talk is an interesting article that provides additional information.

    The plants and animals themselves provide clues to the ubiquitous presence of fire”

    Wasn’t it Australia which was supposed to be a textbook example of renewable power generation creating a more beneficial environment? Yet they also claim to have worse fires today… hmmm… perhaps it’s because they forewent brush clearing in favor of dumping all their money into the renewable energy sinkhole. That’s the same as California’s been doing… and they burned down Paradise.

    Liberalism is a mental disease… part denial of reality, part pig-headed stubbornness about pursuing their mentally-cracked goals regardless of all indications that the unintended consequences of that pursuit are worse than the desired outcome’s benefit.

    Just check the new world temp record in Cabramurra on the 4th Jan, 20.
    Cabramurra is in the Snowy Mts in NSW.

    You will need to scroll down to see the record temps.
    63.3 at 4:33pm! The ethermometer one-second spike was 69.8C.
    You’ll need to be quick as it could soon disappear.
    Obviously a faulty AWS.

    I’m currently at Daytona Beach, FL. Last night had dinner with some family that live in the most upscale community in Ormond and they were telling us about the wildfires of 1998. NASCAR canceled a 400 mile race for the first time in it’s history. People on the west side of the intercoastal had to evacuate, Those with money or friends evacuated to the east side of the intercoastal People stayed evacuated for nearly a month in late June through most of July of 1998. Causes for those massive fires were declared lightning and arson.
