Pro-Trump and anti-Green all at the same time!

From Powerline where the focus is on the media but really, where the focus should be on the inanity combined with smugness of the left. They ruin everything they touch, with Western Civ clearly in their line of sight.

    Say no more. I love it when reality clobbers the zombie left.

    My great-uncle headed the Royal Commission into Victoria’s late 1970’s bushfires.

    His two key conclusions:
    How often do people need to be told that proper forest management is the best way to mitigate bushfire risk?
    Nothing the CFA does would be improved by government interference.

    Now we’ve got the hunchback of Spring Street back for four years.

    Thanks Photios Party.

    SNAP!

    This is pure pwnage. Awesome.

  4. Victoria will be no different. I go into the mountains regularly and no matter how many bushfires occur and Royal Commissions are held, absolutely nothing changes. The Greens that have infiltrated every corner of government, notably Parks Victoria, seem to want the bush and wildlife within to be incinerated.

  5. It’s ironic that I did a blog post on just this some months ago: https://australianimage.com.au/bushfires/. The wheels on the bus keep going round and round.

    The media again?
    Well, that’s how they roll.
    And increasingly it seems they’ll never have to answer for their crimes.

    Our sister and brother-in-law are SES and country firefighting volunteers when they are off duty on their day jobs.

    The damage they speak of by ignorant green-focussed bureaucrats to bush and wildlife would break your heart. They and our daughter are also wildlife carers, people should see up close the results of unnecessary bushfires due to non-clearing and no bush management that wiped our cousin’s holdings and Merino sheep flock in ACT those years ago.

    The core of the environmental ideology is that humans are a virus on the planet.

    When you keep this in mind all this outcomes make sense.

    All too late and not getting through to the right people.

    To even mention the formerly uncontroversial “fuel load” now is Hate Speech.
    You identify yourself as an Extreme Far Right White Male Populist and therefore a legitimate target.

    The sheer weight and repetition of MSM demanding to know if you agreed with them that these fires, in which so many people died, that these fires were caused right there and then by Climate Change – and then if you disagreed, even slightly, you were Politicising the tragedy – means that the Left has picked up one message, and one message only:
    Don’t Mention Fuel Load.
    It’s the climate, stupid.

    Greens. Those conversant with history would be aware that the Nazi Party were avid Greens. As well as totally anti smoking and vegetarians . At the start they were going gang busters. In the end it didn’t finish well for them.

    If fine fuel is reduced 50%, rates of fire spread are 50% lower and fire intensity is 75% lower.
    This applies in both Australia and California.

    Hi. Speaking of massive blazes consuming everything of value in their path, isn’t it time for some more block-chain education too?

    My Nigerian crypto-currency dealers in Lagos have just informed me that despite Dr Nakamoto’s scam effort BitmeonthearseCoin now trading at 20% what it was a year ago, their serious currency based on the local Naira is still going gangbusters. As well as sending Prince Bunkechukwu (translates as The One Who Belongs To God) my life savings, I’ve also sent a copy of Sinclair Davidson’s famous opus on BC Technology, and a link to his website Cryptoeconomics.com.au, so we can all maximize our returns.

    C’mon cats. Enough Californication….a little more multiplication please. Prince Sammy signing out.

    It’s no different here on the outskirts of Sydney. It wasn’t that long ago that you would periodically thin out and burn off whatever vegetation you thought necessary to ensure your own safety. But now they’ve turned it into such a drama that few bother. Any form of clearing is banned outright, and if you do manage to gather up a few dead branches to burn they treat you like a child playing with matches. You are expected to run along cap-in-hand to the RFS for permission, and dutifully report in to all your neighbours. At least 24 hours beforehand of course. And if you don’t obey, they’ve managed to indoctrinate the public to dob you in so they can arrive with sirens blaring, laying down the law and hitting you with steep fines.

    The obvious solution is to lay off – let us each go about our business and make our own decisions about risk and what we do with our own property to manage it. In other words, that old-fashioned concept of respect for property rights. But no, having managed to increase the risk of bushfire by violating property rights, our masters are doubling down and demanding even more stringent building restrictions, significantly increasing the cost of building and further exacerbating the artificial shortage of housing land. Very, very depressing.

    The Quadrant piece by Roger Underwood, referenced above, addresses the bureaucratic imperative: big budgets for water bombers and Somme-style offensives to suppress fire.

    Same thing here: This summer, if you see Elvis, the heavy-lift chopper, scooting about overhead at $10,000-an-hour rental and operating costs, know that you’re seeing the destruction of the bush and the growth of pen-pushers and tax gobblers.

    Also bear in mind that, before Black Saturday, the Vic dept of emergency services and greens-infested enviro department produced a report that insisted with a straight face that prophylactic burning could only be conducted for seven or eight days of the year.

    Here’s a nightmare vision for the coming summer:

    A dry spell to season the fine fuels, hot north winds, a temperature inversion and a blocking weather system over the Tasman. Basically, that’s Black Saturday all over again.

    Except this summer, try operating command centres, communications networks and alerts when the grid has gone down.

    Friends, brace yourselves. If not this year, if we’re lucky, soon. And if fire catches in the bush/urban interface of the Dandenongs, mega-death. The 173 lives needlessly lost in 2009 will be small change by comparison..

    You’d think that significant earthworks, clearing and backburning could be conducted for at least 1/4 to 1/3 of the days of the calendar year.

    Alex, I just downloaded my CFA Property Management document (title: “Prepare Your Property Interactive” – reductio from a fancy Acrobat document).

    Here is what it says:

    Prepare your Property Interactive

    Mature trees can help shield against radiant heat and embers. They must be strategically located and well managed.

    Remove flammable items from decks and verandahs, such as boxes, furniture and doormats.

    Keep grass cut to less than 10cm. Fire can ignite and travel quickly through long grass.

    Keep woodpiles away from the house. Stray fire embers can easily ignite woodpiles.

    Store flammable liquids away from house. Where possible, store in flame proof containers.

    Get rid of dry grass, leaves, twigs and loose bark.

    Prune lower branches of shrubs to separate from surface fuels underneath.

    Prune shrubs well away from branches of mature trees

    Cut back overhanging tree branches close to property – no branches in 10m space.

    Do not have large shrubs next to or under windows.

    Use pebbles and rocks in your garden (not flammable mulch).

    Keep gutters and roof areas clear of leaf litter.

    Bold is mine. Everything screams fuel reduction.

    I suggest that you get the equivalent from CFS / RFS and have it handy next time you do a fuel reduction on your place. When they come with sirens blaring, show them their own document (with local media photographer and reporter present).

    But hope and pray that Tony Abbott is not one of the attending crew. He won’t be offended but he doesn’t need to be in on the embarrassment, does he?

    Dot,
    the authors of that report quite deliberately set out to get that result. They couldn’t burn in spring because little birds were having babies, they couldn’t burn in late spring because Mr Snake was sunning itself. They couldn’t burn in autumn because summer made it too dry. They couldn’t burm roadside “green fuses” because ground fuels were homes and breeding places for timid bushland creatures. They couldn’t burn under power lines, they couldn’t burn because the month had an “r” in it.

    And anyway, according to green consultants, regular burning reduced “diversity”.

    What they refused to acknowledge is that not burning reduces diversity even more.

    It’s funny how Greens assume that animals are basically invalid pensioners that can’t fly, run, hop, walk, slither or canter away from danger.

    You couldn’t pay me to live in the Dandenongs or large chunks of regional Victoriastan. Basically you are just waiting to lose everything.

    Actually I did try something like you suggest a few years ago. It had no material impact, and I heard from a councillor that a senior council bureaucrat referred to me as a ‘ratbag’ for raising the issue in the media.

    You couldn’t pay me to live in the Dandenongs

    Basically, there are two roads in and out. Single lanes, interrupted by roundabouts and lined with incendiary bush.

    The simple solution would be to build neighbourhood fire bunkers.

    If I lived in the Dandenongs, I’d buy an old shipping container and have it in the back yard, buried if i had the money to bring in an excavator. Useful for storage when there are no fires; a lifesaver when the flames come.

    This is an account of what happened in the Dandenongs back in 1962, when it was still largely rural and the population maybe 10% of what it is today. Thirty-two people died in that outbreak, God only knows what the next fires will do.
