so he finally backflipped and announced some proactive measures today which amount to too little too late and presented it all at a press conference with an air of taking charge that convinced nobody but hey, it was the least offensive he'd managed to be in weeks. then he promptly posted a political ad touting the new measures, complete with upbeat royalty free music.

i think it's safe to say the public mood is pretty solidly hostile at this point

i think the death toll now stands at 23 people, conservative estimate for wildlife is half a billion animals. some species may not recover. the prime minister has been enjoying the cricket

white war on the land going nicely, what was your trick to cause so much fire damage? in the cali colony post-holocaust they exterminated many native animals larger than 1mm so there's now limited carbon cycling, tree waste builds up to fire level once a gen. i was walking around my paved CA neighborhood over the holidays and this handyman, who's always outside and always talks too much, boasting about his inheritances and his land-up-north, he said the forestry service released DDT all over CA in the 90s to sterilize the soil & provide continuous time-release runoff for every river north of the bay area, in order to kill off the river invertebrates (and river fish). all the dry-tolerant CA grasses got replaced w/ euro ones (that tan for 6 months during the dry season), why not replace the river bugs with euro ones too? but 500 million animals must be your biggest success yet, that's some real 19th century shit, what are your tricks, just mass species relocations into shrinking 'ecological zones', chemical warfare?, cattle to drink up the land's standing water and dry out the soil? good stuff... you boys must have enclosure down to a science and understand everything about the land

Pretty simple really. Prevent First Nations from managing the land we stole from them (even the bits we still let them live on), cut budgets of all firefighting services and refuse requested resources, and dig as much shit out of the ground as possible at all times.

You have to understand, we're all just big Mad Max fans down here and we're trying to get the entire continent to cosplay

Morrison replaced Abbott because the latter was an utter cretin less concerned with basic leadership than with prosecuting bizarre ego powerplays.



This ecological catastrophe has completely unwound Morrison and made his liberal slash-and-burn-budget kin (specifically old mate Gladys) look like actual statesmen next to him. Actual Trump effect.

conservative estimate of wildlife deaths upgraded to 1 billion.
#707
scientists now have that at 'many billions' and first reports coming through of almost certainly extinct species including the long footed potteroo and the glossy black cockatoo.
