All of this is down to forest management. You had the same in the US.
The aborigines knew this and periodically set the forest alight. When man is involved in the forests new agers are all for "leave the forest alone, it'll look after itself" or "you're destroying the underbrush because that's where certain species live and if you destroy the underbrush you'll make these species extinct" BS, BS, BS.
As in America the Aussies left the underbrush to accumulate. When the underbrush is low a burn off causes little damage. But if left the fuel builds and builds till you have this situation. Unstoppable fire.
Leave the wind, reap the whirlwind.

My guy in the Water Authority backed up what your saying but added that up until 1970 they managed the catchment areas by falling trees in that catchment area. The fuel load wasn't the issue that concerned them but the trees soak up the rain like nobody's business, the first rains would soak the ground and then would run off into the dams but now the trees just soak up everything.

Look there is this fear China is taking over the Country by stealth but I will add this...the US in my home state has all the minerals, oil and gas sewn up, between Chevron, Woodside, Appache, Alcoa and Newmont they basically take all our wealth for small payroll tax payouts with minimal royalties going to the home state. We are owned by the USA and before that it was the Brits and soon it will be China...nothing new here.

Omg! just think of all the strip mining they can now do.
no wild life no plants and no people to get in the way.
just hope no one finds evidence that it was deliberate.

No, it was the perfect recipe for disaster...hot weather and strong winds coupled with lightning strikes.

I wouldn't be surprised if these Fires help China while hurting the land down under.

Some are and people have been caught but the vast majority are lightning strikes.

A warmer globe causes more Thunder Storms.


Not really, but a Solar System in upheaval would certainly do cause more dramatic weather and climate effects.

You think China might like to scoop up some more of Australia or not? What is too much?

That's not an answer to my question.

What may China (or any other country) gain from the fires in Australia?

Half a billion animals perish in bushfires
A staggering 500 million animals are believed to have died in bushfires since September, sparking fears entire species have been lost.

There are real concerns entire species of plants and animals have been wiped out by bushfires following revelations almost 500 million animals have died since the crisis began.

Near the worst news I have read.

Man sees it as a bad thing but nature destroys what was to reveal what is...eternally.
Man wants to fix and mend nature....because thought says it is all wrong.

Ice and fire cleanse.

Very interesting story about how the Government saved these Dinosaurs.

Circle of life. The surviving animals and their offspring will possibly be slightly better equipped to handle big fires. Life will return in a relatively short span of time. That's what life does.
