    Australia Is more than likely done for. These brush fires are going inward from all the sides from the outsides. If it burn all the way through , there won’t be anything left . Imagine what the 350 million already dead wildlife will do to the ecosystem there? Australians will have to revert to a fishing city to survive.

  2. We’re predicting fires now? All by design.

    The main source of electricity generation in Australia is burning coal. They could be generation electricity by burning these trees as biofuel.

  5. This is just crazy… Our prayers from Canada ! Wish we could ship you all our snow to put those fires out !

  7. this reminds me of my family’s story of the Miramachi Fire of 1825. i pray that the loss of life does not come anywhere near that number and i pray that this is over quickly for all those in the threatened areas.

  8. Prayers and Hugs to you all. To humanity and the environment to the animals.

    From the fire affected area. Climate change did cause this… The fuckwit greenies decided that burn off’s and clearing up millions of tonnes for dry fuel is bad for the environment.
    What is more likely the issue morons? Climate change? Or piling up millions of tonnes of dry fuel waiting for a spark which in Australian, is guaranteed.
    If you say climate change you are apart of the problem that has destroyed hundreds of homes and taken so many lives!

  10. This is awful and it only seems to be getting worse
