Of course the dry weather means that the vegetation is tinder dry, and this predisposes to Wild fires, but the seasoned Aussies are all too aware of how to manage this.

What does have an effect is the government meddling in stopping owners from managing trees on their land.
I have to say that when my nieces husband told me of the punitive fines for managing his trees....I thought he was exaggerating, but the article posted by Exile earlier in this thread made me realise that it was all true...mea culpa.
aware of that, just the climate change bullshiners really get on my nerves.
N.L.T.B.G.Y.D. Do not argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
