Health Editor’s Note: Basically a very large portion of an entire continent is burning with loss of human lives and great loss of animal life.  Habitats are being destroyed, which will lead to loss of animals even after the fires are out.  Where is rain when you really, really need it? So sad. Western Michigan would gladly send water there. Lake Michigan’s water level is so high it is eroding its banks, claiming some houses, and rivers are overflowing. More unusual weather patterns affecting precipitation: either too much or not enough….Carol 

Raging Wildfires Have Prompted a State of Emergency in Australia—Again

by Brigit Katz/Smithsonianmag.com

As catastrophic wildfires continue to plague Australia, officials have declared a seven-day state of emergency in New South Wales, the country’s most populous state. It is, according to Linda Givetash and Caroline Radnofsky of NBC News, the third time that such a declaration has been made since the fires began in November.

The emergency declaration grants “extraordinary powers” to Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons, among which are coordinating government resources, closing roads, pulling down infrastructure at risk of collapse and taking possession of property in order to combat fires, explains Stuart Marsh of Australia’s 9News. A state of disaster has been declared in Victoria, Australia’s second-most populous state, allowing officials to authorize evacuations, reports Jamie Tarabay of the New York Times.

These measures come as the country braces for particularly bad conditions on Saturday, when scorching temperatures and strong winds are expected to exacerbate an already-dire situation. Eight people died over the past week as flames swept across Australia’s Pacific coast, bringing the death toll to at least 17. Another 17 people are missing in Victoria, according to the Guardian’s Ben Smee and Luke Henriques-Gomes. Nearly 10 million acres—an area larger than Belgium—have been set ablaze with more than 1,000 houses lost in the flames. An estimated 480 million animals have been affected …..Read More:

  1. Cindy is correct. State controlled environment bodies took over Australia’s wild forest bushland in the 60s. The new “Authorities” closed fire truck access roads to the public and stopped residents from burning back excess dry underbrush in winter. Fifty years later, there are forests where the accumulated dry fuelwood is now chest high. Worse, much of Australia’s forests re dominated by eucalyptus trees, which are as inflammable as liquid petroleum in the hot dry months. The fires are fuelled by blind greeny ideology.

  2. Australians aren’t buying the Climate Change con. especially if carbon is part of the lie. This is a co-ordinated arson campaign designed to force Australia’s Prime Minister to “kow tow” to the Globalist Climate Change agenda. The “problem reaction solution” model is being used to great effect. First we had the Extinction Rebellion morons protesting relentlessly. Then the Climate Change Marxist Teachers used our own school children in a World Climate Action protest, followed on by Greta Thunberg flouncing around wagging her finger at us. In September the Qld Police were arresting arsonists constantly as their was an explosion of fires springing up in NSW and Qld…often 100 at a time!! Extinction Rebellion were suddenly very quiet!! Anyone can look at the weather radar and see that the rain is being geoengineered around Australia’s coast lines. Check out the massive flywheel cloud effect around the US ELF base at Exxmouth in WA. Then there’s the doppler radar network that includes HAARP style arrays on the same towers and you can see cloud banks that are held off shore in semi circular patterns. Tasmania and NZ have been copping rainstorms that would normally have fallen on Australia’s mainland. Globalist thieves have been stealing our water, mineral resources and taking control of our best farming land. Private dams are full of water while the Murray Darling river system is running dry. This all about forcing a 5G Smart City police state on Australia

  3. Bush fires in the summer months is a yearly occurrence and before white settlement the aborigines used to do controlled burn offs to promote new growth and to keep the dangers of catastrophic bush fires to a minimum by burning off the excess ground fuel (leaves, branches, dried grass). Some species of trees need bush fires to be able to reproduce (eucalyptus trees) http://learnline.cdu.edu.au/units/env207/ecology/individual.html. Fast forward to today and now these fires are more catastrophic because the Greenies forced the government to pass laws banning land owners from doing controlled burn offs all in the name of protecting the environment. So for years grass, leaves and branches pile up in dense bush land creating perfect fire fuel. Lightning strikes or stupid idiots starting fires and whoosh up goes the lot. Yup thanks a lot greenies. Now we have record pollution levels in major cities like Canberra and Sydney (I was only down in those two cities 2 weeks ago and I can vouch that the smoke was thick and full of bushfire smoke. I reside in Brisbane we have had thick bushfire smoke hanging around Brisbane for weeks, but not the bad bushfire currently in Vic and NSW, as well as SA and Tassie and WA. We are also in the midst of a drought. http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/ahead/

    • Cindy Myer, Very good explanation of why Australia is burning….I very sorry this is happening….Love those Koalas (who eat those eucalyptus leaves) and quite frankly all the animals who live in Australia…Carol

  4. Scary situation, and if my recollection of Earth science is correct, Australia is heading into their Summer months now.

    • Yes, Edward, they have summer time there now.
      Every year we have terrible fires. Our Siberian taiga was on fire. Dangerous fires in California. Spain. And now in Australia… Bad.
