Firstly it’s not large fires - It’s MEGA FIRES!!
The significant impact climate change has on the opportunity for back burning is also missing in your comments.
“The fire season has lengthened so substantially that it has already reduced opportunities for fuel reduction burning. This means it is harder to prepare for worsening conditions.”
And you can stick your right wing talking points about arsons causing these mega fires up your jumper
“Despite massive fires causing chaos in Victoria this season, authorities are treating only one blaze as suspicious.”
“NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) Inspector Ben Shepherd said earlier this week lightning was predominantly responsible for the bushfire crisis.“
Let’s refer to the science on this instead of “just your opinion dude”
Because of the long-term warming trend, the Fourth National ClimateAssessment Report concluded,
“Climate change has led to an increase in the area burned by wildfire in the western United States. Analyses estimate that the area burned by wildfire from 1984 to 2015 was twice what would have burned had climate change not occurred. Furthermore, the area burned from 1916 to 2003 was more closely related to climate factors than to fire suppression, local fire management, or other non-climate factors.
Climate change has driven the wildfire increase, particularly by drying forests and making them more susceptible to burning.”
