  1. Devastating. We are starting to see the smoke and haze from these fires here in NZ. The situation is incomprehensible in Aus right now.

    1. And all the sane, intelligent, brown and black people. Can save the world by dealing with runaway AGW. 9 of 20

    2. Remember Australia has nothing but garbage, Brexit, wh*ite, convict-DNA. That denies the science and evidence of runaway AGW all around it. Just like Trumpsexual RATpubliKKKlans in the USA. 10 of 20

    1. Conky Bubbles Libtard = anyone who doesn’t want to throw people in jail for weed and don’t want to allow forced incest and rape babies unlike republicunts. Cool.

    2. Prayers are nice, but it’s time for ACTION.

      This is just the beginning.

      The world’s scientists warned us a long time ago and now here we are and it’s only going to get worse the longer we allow the corrupt fossil fuel industry to spread lies and corrupt our well-paid politicians and scumbag pundits. STOP voting in corrupt politicians who deny reality and/or want to do nothing about it. Climate change is REAL.

      #GreenNewDeal with #Bernie2020 is our last hope for humanity to turn this Titanic around. If we had listened to reason and our world’s scientists decades ago instead of fossil fuel lackeys and political stooges, we could have prevented this earlier. Now it’s just damage control. The longer we wait, the worse it will get worldwide.

      CNN, MSNBC and FOX News are to blame as well for presenting a “both sides” fake “debate” on climate change for decades without disclosing the FACT that there was no real debate. The “debate” was with fossil fuel industry talking point lackeys and useful idiots putting our world in mortal danger. They put us in this nightmare.

      The Australian people who are fooled by the fossil fuel industry unwittingly dug their own burning graves as they were lied to by corrupt, evil people who put money ahead of humanity. My heart goes out to all of them who were fooled and my hatred for those who fooled them. The liars on climate change need to be removed from office and severely punished for their acts of mass evil against humanity.

      America must lead the world and turn this global nightmare around before it gets much, much more worse and vastly more horrific.

  2. This is terrible especially during the holidays I’m so sorry. Be safe my prayers are with you. 🙁

    1. RedHood what use is that for all those who have lost lives and property ? Its a meaningless statement

    2. @Russian Métropolitan Maybe if you ask your mother she will finally agree to breastfeed you! Although your attitude is probably why she rejected you in the first place!

    3. Paul Connelly meaningless statement fuckwit. Mother Nature has unleashed its response. She does not give a damn about someone as insignificant as you

    1. @Curunir Um, you DO know that this is from record drought and record warming of our entire planet, correct? Of course, it’s natural to have fires but to this extent is NOT natural. It is NOT normal.

      This is just the beginning.

    2. @Dorian Shades of gray If you are going to spread bullshit it is understandable that you choose not to put your name to your unfounded ‘claims’. It is only your opinion, you present no actual facts, but what is to be expected from a COWARD, nothing less I imagine! So you know where to shove your opinions, right where the sun don’t shine.

    3. @Cowicide Form 1980 to 2010 the temperature of the planet has gone up by 1.5 degrees temperature. However we need more data then just 30 years to make an accurate data sheet. We need at least 2000 years. We have only 1000 year of temperature track show in this link. https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/global-warming/last-1000-years

      If we were going by the next 30 years the planet get 0.1 to 1.5 additional globe temperature higher we could assume the planet is getting hotter.

      The problem here isn’t our Co2 admission in the United States because we are not nearly as bad as China Co2 admission. Which they get “acid rain” try to force the main problem of the producer of globe warming won’t be an easy matter because China doesn’t care. show by https://www.windy.com go to CO concentration.

      Another problem I have with the “Green New Deal” is that AOC want’s to turn off anything that process Co2. That means our Coal planets that produce about 67 percent of our power in our whole nation would be turn off. That means rolling blackout every where. That’s not guarantee that would stop the problem at hand. Only start new ones. Such as what other forms of power would we use to power the whole nation. Not only by the previous problem we have earlier but we get all that wind trail form China that sweep over California an across. Even if we completely stop anything that process Co2, we would still get it form China.

    1. @Lock City You mean hold my needles, and meth pipes?!

      Nobody drink beer or alcohol now a days.
      Love from California.

    2. @Mark Gearing these days thoughts and prayers don’t work in America. We hate each other. These poor people are losing lives, losing homes, losing land and wildlife…and all we are concerned with is political bullshit.

    3. Blessings are nice, but action is desperately needed and needed NOW.

      This is just the beginning.

  3. No electricity means no petrol stations are able to pump fuel in those areas.
    Once the cell-phone towers are taken out, you can’t even call for help.
    It goes to show how easily these things can get completely out of control.
    We are only a few days away from disaster.
    It was pitch-black at 8am near the Mallacoota fires…

    1. The reaction has definitely been slow. The worst fires ever recorded and this is all the government has been able to do for the people? It’s pathetic, quite frankly.

    2. @snoop alert Last I heard, generators need fuel to run on you muppet! Tell that to the people stuck on a burning highway!

    3. @Azania Afrika The fire fighters have been working non stop for months now, but when the fires are the size of Belgium, there’s not much can be done.

    1. @despina charalambous he is not the fire chief and has no operational involvement whatsoever in dealing with these fires. So that Analogy of the ships captain does not apply,

    2. @Dorian Shades of gray …he is the commander in chief who is supposed to oversee everything especially a dire national emergency of gigantic proposions. The prime minister of the country is the father of the nation and a father stays with the family when in danger, not leave it to go on a holiday.

    3. @Dorian Shades of gray His third holiday this year! 45 days of sitting in Parliament 45 days of holiday….No a true leader stays with his citizens!

    4. @Paul Connelly you idiot , this is ScoMo’s first holiday since just after the election win in May last year. Stop talking out of your arse.

    1. As an Aussie I appreciate it, but shouldn’t you be praying for your own country. What about the typhoons.

    1. Indeed.. Australia was always first on the board for some of the WORST of Climate Crisis. Desertification of the ENTIRE island – crop failures, loss of wildlife. Australia is in the process of epic change. Great Barrier reefs also dying… Flying foxes will fall from the trees again…. its a tragic situation, and Australia’s gross fascist government shoots off fireworkz, cuz, NUTHIN TO SEE OVER THERE FOLKS! Look over here at SYDNEY! sad.

    2. To cry out about the devastation of an entire continent via ABRUPT CLIMATE CHANGE? not even remotely. If you aint FREAKIN OUT, its because you arent paying attention, or perhaps you are just apathetic and numb. THIS is happening NOW, not over, and not soon to be over. You are witnessing the death of an entire continent. SLow, but this is how it starts… pay attention now, Planet gettin hot.

    3. Markstubation sez “RESPECT MAH AUTHORITAH!”

      say NOTHING that might hurt the sensibilities of the climate-denier.. HAVE SOME RESPECT!

      Hows this for respect, Master-baiter. Go play a game of hide and go fk yrself in the nearest flaming eucalyptus forest.

    1. @Big Draco..And I said thanks for proving my point.
      If you want to further admit you’re incapable of adult discussion and/or want to confirm you agree with my original comment on wildfires, ecology and eco-anxiety, just reply again with “ok boomer” or some other misplaced ad hominem.

  4. thanks for the prayers and hope from around the world but the hero’s just not in australia but from the us,nz and canada are called firefighter’s

    1. perhaps a response with military response from Canada and the US would the fires be the same or reduced, we won’t know, but a response to an epidemic to defend the way the fires have been given an ” underwhelming response” would be like stating that ww2 would be a totally different story if they had not had responded. They need to rethink how to respond respectfully. Canadian here, I have visited 3 times.

    2. @K Lee N The USA should help, but in the longterm the real help needs to be by leading Australia (and the world) by example with a robust #GreenNewDeal to actually deal with this climate disasters that’s only going to get vastly worse, more deadly and expensive as time and inaction against a corrupt fossil fuel industry goes on. #Bernie2020 with #NotMeUs is the antidote.

    3. @K Lee N Can’t be reliant on an Allie who is using Ukraine excuses and is facing impeachment to do much, I wouldn’t be reliant on them. the whole thing is very tragic and sad, they would use some sort of issue about money.

    4. @Cowicide maybe he is ignorant. Maybe he is skeptical. But the fact that while this fire going on having a nice firework at new year’s eve is just nonsense. What’s wrong with this world?!

  5. Koalas are now an endangered species after this fire. The Australian government estimates that 30% have been wiped out as a result.

    1. Such suffering. Its tragic. Eucalyptus forests are evolved to BURN, but… they need time to recover. Drought weakening everything. Desertification underway.

    1. just saw a report that in 1999 over 18 million in china and over 13 million in India died of air pollution related causes, how bad is it in canberra

    1. @Deandre Taylor Exactly, There is a hiden agenda and people need to wake up! The world is getting crazier by the minute. Its about time people open their eyes to what they think is just a conspiracy theory.
