Perth's turn for a hammering

Perth is a great place to live but with the good comes the bad:
At least eight houses are believed to have burnt down in Roleystone today - falling victim to one of four bushfires across Perth.

The four bushfires are burning in Roleystone, Ferndale, Brigadoon and surrounding suburbs and Sandy Cape.
Strong winds, which have moderated at least temporarily, have made the fires fast moving and very difficult to bring under control. Here's hoping for the best.

Update Bad news:
There are unconfirmed reports that 20 houses have been lost in one of the bushfires, south-east of Perth.

More homes are believed to be under threat from the blaze, which is burning in parts of Roleystone and Kelmscott.
Update II Channel 9 news reports in an update that 24 homes have been razed by fire.

The "narrative" has already started that our bushfires here were caused by Cyclone Yasi, and thus by Anthropogenic Global Warming due to man's CO2 emissions.

Someone must have sent out the word to spread this meme, since it's been popping up all over the place on Twitter and on blogs.

Just one example:

"59 homes burnt in Perth from bushfire fanned by strong winds created by Cyclone Yasi. Can we call it global warming yet? Can we call it climate change yet? .

Good grief.

Science is dead.

Global Warming causes stupidity?

"The fire is believed to have started by an off-duty police officer who used an angle grinder at the front of his Brookton Highway home, despite a total fire ban." .
