    Peter,

    If you have an argument to make / position to state, then do so with some facts / data / evidence rather than just posting up one line emotional comments having a dig. Enter into rational debate not emotional outbursts.

    But lets take your statement as you opening argument.

    30 years of climate change...nope, the climate has been changing for thousands / millions / billions years (depending on your view of religion or evolution) and there's isn't a thing we mortals who inhabit this earth can do to stop the earth from changing...didn't see the Europeans rolling back the mini ice age of the 17th century or the inhabitants of Greenland fighting back the advancing ice that destroyed their grape vines. Can't stop the magnetic north and south poles from moving away from recorded geo locations.

    Yep, blame the Greens / inner city lefties...ask the people in the rural areas / country plus RFS / CFA whats driving fires and the majority will tell you it's Govt policy (driven by Greens / Left activists) re the down-scaling of fire mitigation activities in last 20-30 years. ie back burning to use the phrase.....Google Nowa Nowa back burning protests 2019 as an example. Read the Commonwealth Govt 2003 Select Committee report on bush fires as I've posted here before.

    The people who have stopped hazard reduction have blood on their hands. First people’s in this country have survived bush fires for thousands of years. How? Hazard reduction!!! It’s not rocket science!!! #auspol

    I hear more and more that these fires are burning black which is very strange...perhaps nanotechnology is involved....?

    Would you shake someone else's hand if he/she not facing towards you with full body and his/her other hand in his/her pocket???

    Regarding putting out the fire why not use something like they used to put out the fire in 1991 in Kuwait:https://apnews.com/e78afc2d6d380d5470ef240e9b341854

    Am I miss-reading his comments, or is he advocating holding us all to RANSOM for his (responcible for the lack of preparitness B.S.)?
    Maybe a one off payment of $100,000 dollars to the rfs,would help their guilty feelings.Or a term in jail for crimes against humanity.
    The climate change denial people are responcible for the lack of preparitness for this disaster.They should pay.

    To me, on the surface it seems I am reading the ravings of a madman(child).
    But, then again, I've had a glass of RED WINE. _JOHNLGALT.

    The early explorers reported seeing a large number of fires started by the Australian natives in order to manage their environment. For many years after that the European settlers also used fire until greenies finally put a stop to this practice in order to "save the planet". If we had continued to manage our environment using fire as the first Australians did we wouldn't be having this problem.

    Would someone erudite like to give me a few paragraphs on motive for the massive fraud and charade of climate change propaganda that is constantly referenced here.

    I'm still yet to meet a Climate change denier. Why do you alarmists persist with this term?

    Oh, to cause alarmism.

    The greens that pushed for laws against burn off are responsible for this disaster. It really is that simple.

    Hey, if Abbot was still PM he'd be out there with a hose. And probably in his Speedos to boot.

    Tony Abbott 'blew off cabinet meetings to fight fires' by telling then-PM John Howard he was busy before leaving his phone in a fire truck

    • Tony Abbott joined NSW Rural Fire Service in 2000 while he was a minister
    • Sometimes ditched cabinet meetings to volunteer, his brigade captain said
    • Once told John Howard he was busy then left his phone in the fire truck
    • Returned hours later to find Howard had guessed what he was up to
    • Mr Abbott has been very active fighting NSW bushfire crisis this summer
