‘Arson and bad land management led to Aussie bush fires’

January 13, 2020

BURNT OUT: Aftermath of the 2003 Eastern Victorian alpine bushfires showing the Big River and hillsides near the Omeo Highway (probably from the Bundara River picnic ground), north of Anglers Rest, Victoria, Australia. Similar images have been flashed across the world in the past few weeks. Picture by J J Iron.

 

CONTROLLED BURNS: “Governments ignored numerous state and federal bush inquiries over the past decade, almost all of which have recommended the practice of ‘prescribed burning’. Also known as hazard reduction, it is a methodical regime of burning off flammable ground cover in cooler months, in a controlled fashion, so it does not fuel the inevitable summer bush fires.” – Australian columnist Miranda Devine.

 

GREEN APOCALYPSE: “So the very same enviro-extremists pointing their finger at you and I for our carbon emissions exacerbating the bush fires are themselves are infinitely more responsible for exacerbating the bush fires. They are the ones responsible for the half a billion dead animals and they have got the nerve to point the finger in the opposite direction.” – Alternative You Tuber and commentator Paul Joseph Watson’s take on the green lobby’s knowledge of local land management practices.

 

WHY do some environmental groups champion Climate Change policies that have the potential to devastate cherished landscapes in a crisis?

This was the question being asked by critics of mainstream news organizations that have been so fixated on saying the climate change was the exclusive cause of these fires in South east Australia without any mention of the devastating land management championed by green ideologues and numerous accounts of arson.

‘Did refusal to dredge worsen 2014 flooding on Levels?’

I raise this as in 2016, I mentioned Agenda 21 campaigner David Cammegh in Somerset who drew attention of some conservation groups stopping the practice of dredging the Levels for the purpose of conservation, but in doing so more property actually got flooded and there were higher tolls on wildlife. It was suggested at the time that affected landowners should give up their farms and take compensation.

According to news agency AAP, a total of 185 people have been arrested over the past few months for igniting fires in the states of Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania.

‘Suspect smirked after being charged with arson’

Ten days ago brothers Fadi and Abraham Zreika are amongst those who have been publicly accused of lighting fires at a Guildford park by setting off fireworks and in due course small grass fires developed into something more devastating in sudden winds. Fadi Zreika, it was alleged, appeared to laugh outside course after facing multiple charges.

Dr Paul Read, national director for the National Centre for Research in Bushfire and Arson said on these figures: “About 85 per cent of bush fires are related to human activity, 13 per cent confirmed arson and 37 per cent suspected arson. The remainder are due to reckless fire lighting or even children just playing with fire.”

Green policies championed by environmentalists and implemented at State Level stopped Aboriginal and generation landowners from doing controlled burns to create firebreaks to prevent infernos spreading.

‘Firefighter fined $100K for protecting his property’

A fire fighter was fined $100,000 AUD for creating a fire break on his property and his house was the only one that was left standing in his neighbourhood.

Existing regulations that saw this man get in trouble were said to have exacerbated previous bush fires that got out of control in 2009.

‘Greens ignored local knowledge on controlled burns’

Australia conservative columnist Miranda Devine made these observations on her programme:

“Governments appeasing the green beast have ignored numerous state and federal bush inquiries over the past decade, almost all of which have recommended the practice of ‘prescribed burning’.

“Also known as hazard reduction, it is a methodical regime of burning off flammable ground cover in cooler months, in a controlled fashion, so it does not fuel the inevitable summer bush fires.”

‘We allowed the vegetation to go berserk’

Former Premier of Queensland Campbell Newman told Sky News Australia: “Let’s not beat about the bush. We’ve had the arsonists but 35 to 40 years of bad land management to State forests and international parks and we’ve allowed the vegetation to go berserk with restrictive property owners’ rights to protect their properties with hazard reduction burns and removal of vegetation near their properties and we’ve reaped what we’ve have sown.

“In terms of reference Scott Morrison (the Prime Minister) has got to put a spotlight on land management and practices and that is the thing we need to deal with.”

Paul Joseph Watson said: “They knew this for a decade but the same laws that stayed in place thanks to the green lobby.

‘Greens are responsible for half a billion dead animals’

“So the very same enviro-extremists pointing their finger at you and I for our carbon emissions exacerbating the bush fires are themselves infinitely more responsible for exacerbating the bush fires. They are the ones responsible for the half a billion dead animals and they have got the nerve to point the finger in the opposite direction.”

And they use their ignorance in pursuit of their goal which is fed by nasty, bitter, resentment and that is to destroy all land in which there is any private property right.

Only good thing about having a House of Lords , is they tend to have a better understanding of how to manage the countryside correctly over a long term , seems the time has come to push them to take more interest in rural regulation !

Some get a degree … they do a few small case studies … for a couple of years… they read ‘scientific’ research backed by huge money making companies …. they believe what they are drip fed…. We on the other hand live it and have parents and grandparents who have experienced it ….
