Australia Bushfires – Is Blaming Greens a Conspiracy Theory?

January 6, 2020

By Paul Homewood


There have been concerted efforts by greens to counter allegations that poor forest management enforced by green ideology has been one of the major factors behind the severity of the Australian fires. These attempts to cover up the reality on the ground have been readily trumpeted by the likes of Richard Betts and the Guardian.

Jaime Jessop has taken a closer look at the facts and finds the failure to properly manage fire risks via prescribed burning, fire breaks etc is very real indeed:

    Ditto for California
    Where money should have been spent on upgraded transmission facilities and woodland management instead of the dumb solar and wind farms.

    Paul, here is an example of the green inspired Ausie Beaurocracy.

    So the “experts” and the media once again quote what sound like big numbers and then utterly fail to put them in context. Just pathetic. It should be obvious to anybody with a bigger brain than a gerbil that if controlled burning works, doing it on only 1% of the land is almost pointless.

    So they are once again just lying.

    From Zerohedge:

    A total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for lighting bushfires over the last few months, figures obtained by news agency AAP show.

    In New South Wales, 24 people were arrested for arson, risking prison sentences of up to 25 years.

    In Queensland, police concluded that 103 of the fires had been deliberately lit, with 98 people, 67 of them juveniles, having been identified as the culprits.

    It is beyond amazing that Climate Scepticism could blame a conspiracy of deniers when the climate nutters control almost all of the world media outlets!!!! The only people on the media who are not pushing the climate-change angle seem to be those most affected, who say that it is lack of management of the forests. The AGW believers are really terrified of any questioning of their dogma, especially from the people effected.

    If you will allow, Paul, Monckton has a good essay on WUWT

    Seems it’s also down to the Greens advocating fenced and locked up forestry plantations that they don’t allow entry to and do not maintain (as in the old days) because they are sucking up CO². As someone said, I wonder how much CO² the fires have released as a result of poor management – and rubbish belief systems.

    Once more, Australia has the Mediterranean Sclerophyll Forest Formation which is called Chaparral in the US. These are shrubby species or trees (Eucalyptus spp. in Australia) which have woody leaves and are packed with resins. They burn easily and are adapted to flash fires which keep the formations “healthy.”

    The trick is not to allow a leaf litter or brush to build up. Naturally, it does not as there are frequent flash fires which the root systems can survive. When fire is suppressed OR brush and leaf litter is allowed to build up is when you get disasters. California is a prime example and apparently Australia wants in on the act.
