The aftermath is mind-blowing https://www.smh.com.au/environment/c...17-p53siy.html

Quote:
"We looked at 300 of NSW?s most vulnerable listed fauna species," the document states. "For some species such as the long-footed potoroo, almost every species sighting ever recorded is within the area affected by fire."

Other species, such as the Hastings River mouse and the brush-tailed rock-wallaby, also had their known ranges burnt out.

NSW's plants, though, may count the most species pushed to the brink.

Among 651 of the most vulnerable flora species, 26 had their ranges entirely burnt while another 30 were located in areas 99 per cent affected.

Quote:
Further north, the fires have devastated parts of the Gondwana rainforest world heritage area, a collection of reserves of subtropical rainforest that span 366,500 hectares across NSW and Queensland.
For context, the Gondwana forests are older than the fire-adapted eucalyptus forests, originating over 100 million years ago. They are poorly adapted to fire and can take over a century to recover. If they get burnt again before that, they may never recover.

Unlike the successful mission to save the Wollemi Pine in the Sydney Basin, the fate of the nightcap grove has received almost no attention.

The nightcap oak Eidothea hardeniana is one of 20 extremely rare ancient plant species found in a small area in the Nightcap National Park, north of Lismore.

In the same botanical hotspot, there are also 29 threatened animal species, including the endangered giant barred frog.

Someone should try to use this tragedy to pitch climate alarmism. It is for the good of the future utopia, where the climate never changes!

Quote:
Paradoxically, a growing perception of state impotence will almost certainly be accompanied by ever more aggressive demonstrations of state power.

In Australia, Morrison?s supporters talk about fuel loads and arson.

In part, the pivot away from climate represents a simple bait and switch. After the world recorded its second-hottest year ever, conversations about hazard reduction help drown out conversations about climate.

But the new focus also shifts the debate in a direction the government likes.

If environmental bureaucracy had prevented hazard reduction (it didn?t), the answer lies in slashing green tape, an easy extension of an already existing ideological commitment to deregulation.

More importantly, the identification of (a largely bogus) arson outbreak transforms an ecological crisis into a law and order problem, paving the way for new legislation and fresh penalties.

And that?s something the state can deliver.

Someone should claim that climate change is the cause of this, and suck all the oxygen out of any other discussion around this crisis.

long read but recommended https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...summer-of-loss

Quote:
I cried when, during one of those impromptu toddler confidences, my son told me that one day he’d be older than me. I cried because I wonder if he will.

To live to be my age, he will have to make it to 2055, when climate change will have rendered much of the planet inhospitable to human life, driven mass extinctions of almost every kind of species, and unleashed civil unrest over resources like food and water on a scale at which there is no precedent in human history.

Moreso than the anxiety or political fury of this summer, I have been gripped by an insurmountable grief for my children and the life I took for granted which they will never be able to share.

The fires are terrible. Politicizing them is even more so.

One example:

Quote:
The The Kangaroo Island glossy black cockatoo is a shining example, with numbers of this endearing bird rising from 150 to over 400 in the past two decades thanks to brilliant conservation work. This dreadful fire has knocked out around 65% of its habitat and we don?t yet know what proportion of the population.

In the short-term, this bird has desperate emergency needs, such as the conundrum of how to feed it. The glossy black is one of the parrot world?s fussiest eaters, feeding only on the seed cones of drooping sheoak ? a tree that?s killed by fire. is a shining example, with numbers of this endearing bird rising from 150 to over 400 in the past two decades thanks to brilliant conservation work.

I keep hoping it isn't that bad. (IT IS)

A pal is training over there, and feels guilty about having flown for something so 'frivolous'. I told him I would do all my running outside for now, to 'offset' his carbon-guilt.

It is, of course, hilariously inadequate.

My brother - who lives in Canberra - told my parents that the media coverage of the Canberra bush fires was a beat up.
