Not my words but those of the Sydney Morning Herald who are clearly annoyed at the perhaps 300 unnecessary deaths. However since Green politicians & their media liars cause the deaths of 24,000 people in Britain annually because of the fuel poverty they know could be ended with nuclear power, it would be even more reasonable for some part of the British media to say the same. There is certainly no question that the Greens, of all parties, are deliberate mass murderers. Instead we have seen reporting which implicitly blames the warming, though it has been difficult for the BBC to stress catastrophic warming in the current British climate.

I got this item from CCNet which anybody can subscribe to here & which anybody who wants to know something more than the lies the BBC cover us with should do.

The Sydney Morning Herald, 12 February 2009

Miranda Devine

It wasn't climate change which killed as many as 300 people in Victoria last weekend. It wasn't arsonists. It was the unstoppable intensity of a bushfire, turbo-charged by huge quantities of ground fuel which had been allowed to accumulate over years of drought. It was the power of green ideology over government to oppose attempts to reduce fuel hazards before a megafire erupts, and which prevents landholders from clearing vegetation to protect themselves.

So many people need not have died so horribly. The warnings have been there for a decade. If politicians are intent on whipping up a lynch mob to divert attention from their own culpability, it is not arsonists who should be hanging from lamp-posts but greenies.

Governments appeasing the green beast have ignored numerous state and federal bushfire inquiries over the past decade, almost all of which have recommended increasing the practice of "prescribed burning". Also known as "hazard reduction", it is a methodical regime of burning off flammable ground cover in cooler months, in a controlled fashion, so it does not fuel the inevitable summer bushfires.

In July 2007 Scott Gentle, the Victorian manager of Timber Communities Australia, who lives in Healesville where two fires were still burning yesterday, gave testimony to a Victorian parliamentary bushfire inquiry so prescient it sends a chill down your spine.

"Living in an area like Healesville, whether because of dumb luck or whatever, we have not experienced a fire ... since ... about 1963. God help us if we ever do, because it will make Ash Wednesday look like a picnic." God help him, he was right.

Gentle complained of obstruction from green local government authorities of any type of fire mitigation strategies. He told of green interference at Kinglake - at the epicentre of Saturday's disaster, where at least 147 people died - during a smaller fire there in 2007.

Back when I subscribed to the New American magazine there was an article in it quoting an American environmentalist to the effect that he wanted to use eco laws to "grope our way back to 1492". These people are watermelon marxists; green on the outside, red on the inside. Another article detailed how a Bush jr era congressional panel discovered how the US EPA funneled cash to the envirolobby groups. If I ever get up the motivation I will find the issue. TNA also had an entire issue dedicated to promoting nuclear power, you would definitely have approved.

Unrelated, but I remember that an environmental group in NY state called Riverkeeper was headed by a younger member of the Kennedy clan. Maybe some of the EPA's slush fund was going to keep the Kennedy's in whores and cummunion offerings. It's a shame really, upstate NY used to be an industrial powerhouse respected around the world, now it is a third world cesspool because of the leftists (like Riverkeeper) out of NYC that dominate the state government.

Instead we have seen reporting which implicitly blames the warming, though it has been difficult for the BBC to stress catastrophic warming in the current British climate.

Neil, you didn't get the memo all of the beautiful people in NYC and London got. We are now calling this scare "climate change", not global warming.

Related, but the film about global warming called The Day After Tomorrow was modeled after a communist made film from Hollywood called The Day After that was about nuclear armageddon. The Day After was made by an outfit called Praxis films. Nowadays leftists are smart enough not to be that obvious.
U wouldn't even consider them real Marxists either. The real Marx based his entire thesis on economic progress enhancing ther power of industrial workers. Clearly wrong in many ways but no political philospher was more keen on progress. Lenin promised that cfommunism would be achieved by "the electrification of the whole country". Thus the Greens aren't Marxists pretending to be Greens they are Medievalist parasites pretending to be Marxists pretending to be Green's (& indeed then sometimes pretending to be Liberals).
Yes, but communism in the West became environmentalism, or at least fused with it. The goal of communism was to destroy the West, which it is still working on despite the loss of its' main patron.

I agree though, the ecopagans want us all to enter a new dark age.
