Of all the renewable technology that could be deployed, I can't believe we're carrying on with that useless, inefficient,...

Re: Australia's burning

I'll assume you were replying to my post. I purposely made no mention of climate change as it's not the place for that debate. I was just trying to put these current fires in a historical context....

Re: Australia's burning

So, as I tend to do these days, I decided to do some research and try and find out about the current fires in an historical context - and what I found was surprising and fascinating. This current...

Re: Advise a non-mechanic - what to look for when buying a used car?

Re: Australia's burning

It's wrong to blame the Greens but I don't think that there will be a backlash. Dirty politics works - as we have seen in Australia, and around the Anglosphere, in recent years

I'm not unhappy to...

Re: Australia's burning

So, the drought's got nothing to do with it? Err, okay. Controlled burns are inherently risky at the best of times. Look at the one in the SW of WA a few years ago - very well planned, ideal...

Re: Australia's burning

I'm no fan of the Australia-hating Greens but agree that blaming them for this is ridiculous. There has been a lack of back burning in many areas on the east coast but that could be down to budgets...
