Over 200 people have been arrested and charged with arson and arson related charges in Australia in the last year. The vast majority of them have been charged with setting multiple fires.
If you watch the Avi Yemini's recent videos on YouTube, a lot of the climate change protesters claim that man made (arson and/or human stupidity) brush-fires is fake news.
This is directly from the Australian Federal Police re: the recent bushfires.. https://factcheck.afp.com/police-figures-show-far-fewer-people-australia-have-been-charged-bushfire-arson
"Just 24 people were charged for “deliberately-lit bushfires"
Most other fires were started by the fact that everything is dry and lightning strikes started them
Not commenting on climate change etc just wanted to clarify that 1 point that you said about "over 200" - the issue is ppl are taking that fact and saying every single bushfire from the last two months is arson from 200 people.. which is completely incorrect
About 100 or so were charged with other things *related* to fire bans etc but that was more like "why are you lighting a BBQ on a no fire day" kinda thing..
"The release adds that legal action was taken against 53 people for allegedly failing to comply with a total fire ban and against 47 people for allegedly discarding a lighted cigarette or match on land."
these incidents are common every hot day in Australia - stupid people do stupid things.. these 100 had zero to do with starting any fires.. unfortunately the incorrect/inflated figures were ran with but have since been corrected - but facebook is its own world and doesnt deal well with actual facts
