Re: Table Mountain fire 'burns out of control' in Cape Town
Fair points Margo, thanks for drawing attention to the socioeconomic factors. Clearly global warming has minimal direct influence on urban fires, and if there has been a decent amount of rain then that does point the finger at other causes. A big warning sign for any society when you have people willing to engage in these destructive activities, wanting to burn it all down and start again. I can relate up to a point! However something like a colonial library would be important to keep even for the anti-colonial struggle if it contained documents revealing the true rapaciousness of the culture. Was it just the name of the thing that made twitterers angry?
