Surprise: Australian Fires Were Pretty Much The Work Of Not ‘Climate Change’

Much like in California, the fires were mostly caused by humans, but, not via “carbon pollution”

Then there’s this from the Sydney Morning Herald

Arson, mischief and recklessness: 87 per cent of fires are man-made

There are, on average, 62,000 fires in Australia every year. Only a very small number strike far from populated areas and satellite studies tell us that lightning is responsible for only 13 per cent. Not so the current fires threatening to engulf Queensland and NSW. There were no lightning strikes on most of the days when the fires first started in September. Although there have been since, these fires – joining up to create a new form of mega-fire – are almost all man-made.

A 2015 satellite analysis of 113,000 fires from 1997-2009 confirmed what we had known for some time – 40 per cent of fires are deliberately lit, another 47 per cent accidental. This generally matches previous data published a decade earlier that about half of all fires were suspected or deliberate arson, and 37 per cent accidental. Combined, they reach the same conclusion: 87 per cent are man-made.

Seasonal changes, in part due to climate change on top of natural oscillations causing the drought and westerly winds, have some origins in man-made emissions. More directly, however, the source of ignition is human.

It’s not lost on police, emergency services and firefighters at the front line that most of these fires were lit deliberately, or accidentally through recklessness, nor that they are unprecedented in their timing and ferocity. Since September, it has been a constant pattern that a few days after the fires roar through we have the first police reports that arson or recklessness was involved.

One really does have to wonder how many are being set by members of the Cult of Climastrology in order to push their cult. Think that’s conspiracy theory?

The Washington Post is yammering about Aussies ditching “climate denial” because of the fires. They missed how many have been started by people. How many of the California fires have been caused by humans and companies, rather than ‘climate change’? All.

    So Teach postulates that climate change activists are starting fires.

    Teach also repeats his straw man argument that fires like this are not “caused” by global warming, but of course that’s not the issue is it? Fires are started by sparks, fires, arson, lightning … but how much worse are the fires because of the heat and drought?

      Lie. Show where in the post he says that. He posts a twat about the Amazon.

      First, it’s summer down there. We have the same problem here in the summer.

      Second, no straw man. You don’t even know what the phrase means.

      Third, even their fake news notes this has nothing to do with global nonsense.

      Go back to Mommy.

      “but how much worse are the fires because of the heat and drought?”

      Considering that the number, intensity and damage done from wild fires has been trending down over the last 100+ years, I would say not so much.

    Wonder why the whiny little sissybitch denies the data.

    Oh, wait…

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      You also make Teach’s straw man argument.

      Dumb, dumb, dumb…

      • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

        Yep.
        You really are that dumb, dumb, dumb.
        Also you might want to look up the strawman fallacy because obviously it’s another concept that’s beyond your meager comprehension.

        You must be looking in a mirror as you say that.

    So many of your lies, so little time…

    Your constant stream of bullshit is not worth the trouble, but your lies…

    Me: So Teach postulates that climate change activists are starting fires.

    Wiz: Lie. Show where in the post he says that.

    Teach typed: One really does have to wonder how many are being set by members of the Cult of Climastrology in order to push their cult.

    Straw man…

    Teach created the straw man argument that those who recognize the reality of global warming are claiming that the warming is causing woods and grasses to burst into flames. Then he proceeded to tear down the argument that no one is making. It’s ironic that you didn’t recognize that.

    Fake news recognizes no impact of global warming…

    Seasonal changes, in part due to climate change on top of natural oscillations causing the drought and westerly winds, have some origins in man-made emissions.

    Now, GFY, you wascally wabbit. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

      No, it’s not. The twat specifically says the WWF paid people to set them. Now who would WWF go to if not environuts?

      Fake news recognizes no impact of global warming…

      Tough when the Aussie cops are jamming it in their faces.

    No, he doesn’t, idiot child. He posts a link to another article stating that. Do you not know how links work, or are you simply unable to read or understand them?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Stormer,

      Teach’s hypothesis – One really does have to wonder how many are being set by members of the Cult of Climastrology in order to push their cult. – was not in the linked article. It’s all Teach. Do you many professors who refer to the “Cult of Climastrology”.

      Teach made a mistake, likely meaning to “box” the selection from the opinion piece.

      Stormer and The Lickspittle can apologize later. Teach could clear it up.

      For the “Is not!” crowd: A straw man is a form of argument and an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent’s argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent. One who engages in this fallacy is said to be “attacking a straw man”.

      • formwiz says:

        First you need to lay off the Ripple, minimu.

        Second, it’s like Ozark Mafia. It’s a description from outsiders.

        Teach made a mistake, likely meaning to “box” the selection from the opinion piece.

        No, you did.

        And, as a great cavalry tactician reminded us all, “Never apologize, mister. It’s a sign of weakness”.

      • alanstorm says:

        IOW, you were unable to read or understand the linked article. Got it. Not surprised.
