BURN IT AND PAVE IT
Andrew Bolt wrote today about the importance of "fuel reduction burns" as a means of fire mitigation. Jeremy Sear's finely honed lawyer brain magically transforms "fuel reduction burns" into something all together different:
The only way to stop nature burning the state down is to do it ourselves first. And then cover the embers over with concrete in case something flammable grows back.Controlled burns are a well established fire mitigation strategy with many benefits -- some Australian species actually require fire for propagation. City boy Jeremy wouldn't have a clue.
