Fires burn all over Australia at the moment. Sydney just got out of a huge dome of diy-smog. Melbourne has 65 fires burning and will have over 100 by the weekend, managed by the The Department of Sustainability and Environment. Check out these satellite images of Tasmania, smoke columns 50 km long. With all the fire 'science' it still whiffs of slash-and-burn, cost-effective clearing, cheap land-gains for real estate. Pity about the climate, biodiversity and human health.
On the South Coast The Group Against Smoke Pollution (GASP) is taking action.
Will bushfires change the climate?
