    Is this fire comparable to any in recent Aussie history, or is it the worst in memory?

    It has saddened the world. We're all one self, after all. Well, except Ponder. There are two basic energies in the universe: self and Ponder.
    HHAHAHAHAAA!! You’re funny

    No, it’s much worse. I’d like to know what the Indigenous Australians have to say about it. They never get much of a say in anything though. I mean they should be involved in the prevention and things like that, but what would they know? They’ve only been here for 40,000+ years

    The other thing - people from overseas have given more support in a few days than our government in months (it started in September). P!nk donated $500,000 yesterday and some big celebrities have Tweeted important messages (Bette Midler was very funny and had a go at the Prime Minister). American and Canadian firefighters are here helping. Our PM has become a joke and I just hope this shows him up to the whole world.

    Do you know Gypsy that a lot of Canadian firefighters are in Australia fighting the fire, We have so many forests and so many fires that Canadian firefighters are probably the best in the world
    I do not like to talk about someone who is not here, it looks like gossip.
    I had fell of the wagon with him too )

    Are you inferring that Ponder does not care about the fire situation or that he cares little for the notion that we are all one?

    Please explain yourself.

    Edit ... Don't bother.

    If I have something to say ... I will say it under my own name.

    This tells me a lot of what goes on behind the scenes.

    I made a new thread, your welcome to pop in it and discuss the nature of your name ... if you so wish.

    This ponder loves discussing such things.

    I’ve been reading about the fires. This article sums the whole thing up well: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/03/o...te-change.html

    “..We need more able people to defend the town as we are in for bad heat from Friday again. Tucks area will be a problem from today, but trees down on all tracks, and no one to fight it.

    We are tired, but ok.

    But we are here in 2020!

    Love

    Us”

    The bookstore in the fire-ravaged village of Cobargo, New South Wales, has a new sign outside: “Post-Apocalyptic Fiction has been moved to Current Affairs.”

    And yet, incredibly, the response of Australia’s leaders to this unprecedented national crisis has been not to defend their country but to defend the fossil fuel industry, a big donor to both major parties — as if they were willing the country to its doom. While the fires were exploding in mid-December, the leader of the opposition Labor Party went on a tour of coal mining communities expressing his unequivocal support for coal exports. The prime minister, the conservative Scott Morrison, went on vacation to Hawaii.

    .....

    “Australia is a burning nation led by cowards,” wrote the leading broadcaster Hugh Riminton, speaking for many. To which he might have added “idiots,” after Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack blamed the fires on exploding horse manure.

    Such are those who would open the gates of hell and lead a nation to commit climate suicide.

    ———-

    I’m never one to advocate the death penalty but this is like an act of Treason. The country is already economically f***ed thanks to the government. I don’t even know what this means for us. People want blood at the moment.


    In other news, my mother is a bitch

    Thanks for the invite, Ponder.

    Gypsy, did you move back to your mother's house because of the fires?
