Learn from history or repeat it

Jo Nova reports on the fires of 1946.

In 1946 fires burned in an “almost unbroken chain from Brisbane to Townsville”. They lit up the sky at night, pushed plumes of smoke 3,000 ft in the sky, that looked like “Bikini Atoll”. And this was July…

    Yes, a major bushfire every now and then will reduce the fuel loads and reduce the hazards. Surely better to have effective intermediate fuel load reduction actions than have “the big one” every couple of decades ….
