Aboriginal techniques are based in part on fire prevention: ridding the land of fuel, like debris, scrub, undergrowth and certain grasses. The fuel alights easily, which allows for more intense flames that are harder to fight. The Aboriginal people would set small-scale fires that weren't too intense and clear the land of the extra debris. The smaller intensity fires would lessen the impact on the insects and animals occupying the land, too, as well as protect the trees and the canopy.

Controlled burns are sound ecological practices used for thousands of years. But you have crazy tree huggers in Australia and California that fight it because, bird nests might be burned, or something.

Imagine seeing this article and thinking the problem is as binary as burning vs. not burning. Only ------- like Mackris and Dulli are stupid enough to not even read their own articles.

Nukkifidian quoting climate change denier Paul Homewood... so, nothing new there.

"The "report" to which Palmer referred was actually a series of blog posts, written by climate change denier Paul Homewood..." a retired accountant, rofl!!


"Last month, the Foundation published an inaccurate and misleading pamphlet on Tropical hurricanes in the age of global warming'. Written by Paul Homewood, a retired accountant, it contains a number of false statements, including:"

RoTomCotton... slobbering rwinger who can't discern science from fiction; who stumps for Trump while laughingly denying it, who slurps the orange koolaid his Know Nothing Party feeds him... like there no such thing as facts and it isn't easy to tell the crank sources from the legit ones.... OK, well, maybe it's not for him and his pathetic party.
