Climate change had caused the Australian defense force to start one of the fires.
Quote: a training exercise by the Australian Defence Force was responsible for sparking a massive NSW bushfire.
An investigation by the Rural Fire Service has found explosives training on army land at Marrangaroo on October 16 was responsible for starting the State Mine bushfire."
This is one of the larger fires.
Maybe they were reading all the propaganda on climate change instead of the safety manual?

Dazza.

The issue of brush fires is not who started them. They will get started one way or another eventually.

The issue is how EASILY they get started and how OUT OF CONTROL they get due to the dry windy conditions that make them so dangerous and uncontrollable.

Now if you had a post on historical data vs current conditions, you might have something to say.

Or something on just how climate HAS changed in the region. Something relevant and meaningful in other words.

You spout disdainful armchair expertise from the other side of the planet with a touch of imperious arrogance thrown in.

You could have made your point in a less snotty way.

Put your money where your mouth is. Provide the data and detail you condemn the OP for not providing.

Ad hominem. Ignoring what I said to attack the fact that I am not IN Australia. Boo hoo.

Fires are worldwide. The increase in wildfires is widespread. Australia has no primacy. Stop being so parochial and clueless.

Seems to me that 'ad hominem' was yours to begin with.

Besides, we don't need you to lecture anyone here on climate change. We have ways of knowing already ... secret technology like Radio, TV, Newspapers etc.

As I said, provide the data and detail you condemn the OP for not providing.

If you know something that we don't then let's hear it.

Yes, ASC, they still are "going on"... though it is revealing to note that they have refined their position to a single point for any and all challenges to CAGW.

That position is:
Cyber-bully.
It is a key part of every rant in defense of their belief system of Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide Driven Catastrophic Global Climate Disruption Orthodoxy.

May their faith bring them peace.
