    As Australia battles its worst bushfires in living memory, leaders admit they're uncharted territory. Australia's bush fires are being described as a national catastrophe. They are even turning the skies over Auckland New Zealand orange, 2,000 kilometers away from australia.
    At least 24 people have now died in the blazes, thousands have lost their homes and experts calculate more than half a billion animals have been killed. Prime Minister Scott Morrison is facing strong criticism for his handling of the crisis.
    Cooler conditions are expected to give some relief to firefighting efforts. But officials warn the reprieve won't be enough to get fires under control let alone put them out.

I live in one of the hottest towns in the driest state in Australia, in the bush, we have usually had bushfires by now but nothing this year, although we were not stonewalled by greeny protestors etc when backburning and preparing for the oncoming fire season,. amazing what preventative measures can achieve when they are allowed to happen.

Typical media hyperbole, I am right in the middle of these fires. Compared to previous fires these are mild, very few casualties and very little damage compared to some of the fires I have lived through in my 65 years.

The people need support...or at least to show your concern.. and then when he returns says .."maybe I shouldn't have gone on holiday"....wow the world is watching Australia...so sad.. BRAVO TO ALL THE FIREFIGHTERS.. 🔥💓

It is really heartbreaking 💔😭. I am so sad for all that are affected - the people, the animals, the trees, their properties especially the loss of lives. Is cloud seeding could not help? so that there will be rains. They should have done that before the bush fires got worse.

In Colombia, South America, we also have problems with fire and forest destruction, but by criminal groups. It is necessary to face the problem of fires with ingenious and scientific solutions, some in the short term, others in the medium term, which can be found, for example; Water supply networks as is done with extensive crops, with pipes, hoses, and canals, but here to maintain soil moisture and water can come from the sea, which Australia has enough, the energy for pumping would come from solar panels, sun there is enough and government budget too. In scientific research; thesis; mini pumps of vacuum, or hydrogen, etc., that when launching and exploding in a zone of great fire would extinguish everything around, but unfortunately, they also kill every living being in the place. And in the medium term face global warming; changes in energy sources, pollution, etc.

Just look at the debris that is burning beside the road. This is the problem that councils and the bureaucracy dominated by green “environmentalists” refuse to allowed to be removed. The volunteers have been doing a magnificent job made more difficult by tis attitude

Australian fire dept need to out smart the fire.. like they do in the US, pre-burning ahead of the fire, so that it dies out and can't spread anymore.

I felt very sad when I heard about the bushfire in Australia on Instagram page.. Really its a matter of regret that a vast area of land suddenly caught by fire.. The animals were burned tremendously and continuously. The firefighters did their best to save the animals and the forest from burning...

This is how it always has been in Australian Bushland... nothing to do with climate change....but the population growing and loving natural leafy properties and not cool burning before summer and coupled with the criminal arsonists. Devastating fires I remember include now 2019 (25 deaths), 2009 (100+ deaths), 1994 (NSW/Sydney), 1983 (Victoria). So every 10 years approx there have been catastrophic fires.
