    The source of energy is really not the heart of the problem here, it is a symptom and nothing more. And in any case this is not the thread for the discussion.

    What worries me is the vast tracts of forest, or carbon sequestration fields, that are now out of operation for...what...a decade? At a bare minimum? Not to mention the vast stresses that have now been piled on our ecological systems. We cannot afford these fires. This is a national and global disaster.

    So the problem with the ratbags is when the environment collapses they only reinforce their prejudices that nature is to be dominated whipped and controlled

    I overheard conservatives talking endlessly about what they'd like the State to do to the people that started these fires! Is this how conservative media is approaching it? There's a witch hunt for people who 'started' the fires deliberately? How convenient. I didn't realise the fires had nothing to do with climate change and are in fact the product of a few bad apples, probably muslims or black African's or inner city greenies.

    Laura Tingle nails it here... although I'm still waiting for the coal exports issue to be properly addressed, the single biggest lever Australia has to influence climate change.

    George W Bush's failure to immediately recognise a catastrophe during Hurricane Katrina tells us what problems are created by Scott Morrison's perplexing failures of political and policy judgement

    Perhaps the whole issue of climate change policy should be taken out of the hands of politicians. Far too many of them are scientifically illiterate, many deliberately so.

    First dog is appropriately mournful, like the whimpers they dubbed in to the old Lassie show.

    Checked my bat local colony the day after last week's heatwave. death toll mainly on the young. bats dead in the trees and on the ground. Lots of the survivors with heat exhaustion. Falling from the trees in front of us as we watched.

    It's several degrees cooler where I am. But it's a frightening day.
    (edit - if I read it right the old record was 46.9, I could be wrong)
    (edit 2 - on TV they just said the old record was 47.3)
