    As terrible and damaging as fires can be, they’re part of a fire-based ecology which recycles the nutrients into the ground on a cyclical basis; southern Cali is one of those ecosystems, and parts of Australia are, too.

    I think the recent catastrophic bushfire was caused by some asshole arsonist, and if it’s true, then he deserves to burn for it. My heart goes out to all the Aussies who suffered and died because of the recent tragedies :\

    @purple banana:
    That’s the charge on the book right now.

    I always have wondered why people choose to live in that part of California. Just as much as you shouldn’t build your home on slipping sand, you shouldn’t build it on a burning bush. (holy, or otherwise)

    That flower is tough. It’s a survivor…

    @RSIxidor: You know, I was just thinking the same thing… If you build your home in an area that is prone to brush fires, then you should at least be prepared for one to occur…

    @Phyreblade: People were. They were following disaster plans set down by everyone from the Fire Authority, Government policy and general common sense. Every little T and I was dotted in most cases, but these fires were more extreme and more widespread than could ever have be expected. Arson was/is suspected in many cases, diverting valuable resources from fire locations that Firefighters themselves have admitted that 1000 fire-engines would have been powerless to slow, let alone halt. The firefront that tore through one country town had an internal temperature hot enough to melt glass and aluminium (1723 °C or 3133 F)… Read more »

    @asrainox: Wow. Is it me or are natural disasters getting worse in level, intensity and frequency? Or perhaps hearing about it more often and in more detail w/ 24 hour news cycles?

    @asrainox: As I understand it, Firefighters are familiar with that kind of heat, and the nature of brush fires in general, so I don’t think that should have been something they couldnt have anticipated…

    I’m willing to bet the arsonist(s) may have known exactly what they were doing…

    The arsonist/s would certainly have known what starting multiple fires in multiple locations would do.
