We all know that Australia is currently have massive wildfires, which liberals are blaming on climate change. 

It seems that a lot of the problem comes from decades of bad land management.   

Another factor is arson. 

Back in Nov 2019, a firefighter set at least 7 fires, but is suspected of 11.  Another guy set at least 12, but is suspected to have set over 20 in just 2 weeks.

Back in Sept 2019, it was shown that 85% of the fires were directly due to humans.  50% were due to arson and the other 35% is made up of suspected arson and/or human stupidity. 

Where I live in Scotland, we had a guy set 33 fires (from memory).   If you do a simple google search, you'll find that many of these fires around the western world are arson.

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

I said over the last year, not the last 2 months.  There is a difference.

while more than 380 people have been arrested for fire related offenses, 

Intentionally setting a fire during a fire ban, is still intentionally setting fires that cause brush fires.

As I pointed out in my opening post, 2 guys (no connection to each other) set a confirmed 19 fires, but are suspected to have set about 30.  That was in just 2 weeks in Nov 2019. 

Where I live we had just over 30 from a single guy. 


SURE, some have been started by lightning strikes and whatnot.

We have had 3 fires now, where I live, that are classed as arson.  No idea if it's the same guy as before or some other loser.
