Walsingham Posted May 11, 2009 Share Posted May 11, 2009 http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/8038363.stm A fascinating article, at least for me. The summary would be that there is an argument that sensible fire-mitigation efforts were prevented by 'green' legislation and attitudes in government. My emotional reaction to this is oriented squarely on the assertion by an environmental group who are quoted as being against clearing roadsides because it will impact biodiversity, when it was burning roadsides which killed so many people. I always find it distinctly creepy, if not sinister, when people show more empathy with wildlife than for their fellow man. "It wasn't lies. It was just... bull****"." -Elwood Blues tarna's dead; processing... complete. Disappointed by Universe. RIP Hades/Sand/etc. Here's hoping your next alt has a harp.
