Australian wildfires endanger the lives of thousands of koala species and other animals. One dog steps in to rescue his furry friends.
Taylor, English Springer Spaniel, is trained to sniff out koala fur and droppings, said her owner and professional dog trainer Ryan Tate. Taylor has rescued eight of the country’s iconic marsupials from wildfires, which have destroyed more than 2,000 homes, claimed at least 26 human lives and potentially killed thousands of koalas. Some of these animals were hospitalized, and others were taken to areas deemed safe, Tate said.
The real cause of this disaster of Australia wildfires.
This is something quite unimaginable but I want to highlight here the reasons that have led to this disaster.
I received a message from a friend in Australia about the situation there and the reasons that led to this and I can be more agree with him.
This is not only a problem for Australia but in general the current political climate all over the world.
There are also many suspicions that climate hysterics have deliberately set fire, but I am not going to take a stand on it.
The real reason behind Australia’s wildfires
Greetings from Australia. The media seems to have a lot of stuff about our wildfires. At the same time, climate change is often written. Sure, a long dry cycle aggravates the situation, but that is not the reason. If you are really interested in what this is all about, here is a bit of writing on the subject.
For thousands of years, locals have controlled fires by burning protected areas. Migrants from elsewhere have always used the same strain. Now, however, green brainstorming has been invented to the detriment of nature. Thus, incineration has been radically reduced.
Previously, a landowner was able to clean undergrowth around his house to protect his home, but now it has been limited. Fines have been given for protecting your own home.
Before animals ate undergrowth in the vicinity of villages, providing shelter from fires, but that too was forbidden. Firefighters had been worried for a long time, but half a year ago politicians’ recklessness crossed the line of tolerance, with fire chiefs coming out, making it very clear that a full disaster was coming.
They told me exactly what was coming and what should be done. The government didn’t take it for granted. No reliable weather forecast can reach months before, so drought was not the cause of the panic half a year before the disaster. At that time, it was already clear that the future situation could not be controlled – whether the climate was hot and dry or not.
In addition, there were savings in fire fighting, where up to now there have been insufficient funds. Fire equipment relies heavily on foreign aid when their own fire equipment is not very advanced. We don’t have any big fire extinguishers ourselves. Most of the fire fighting work is done by volunteers who pay for their own fuel, masks, etc. Many of them lose their income when they are off work. They do not receive the slightest reward from the state.
As the situation worsened, decision-makers did not act. It should have been asking for help from the armed forces and abroad a long time ago, but instead, it has been hoping for rain and making speeches.
The purpose is not to do political advertising on behalf of anyone because mistakes have been made across party lines. Although the arrival of heavy rains and a drier year aggravates the situation, the cause of the disaster is the stupidity of the politicians responsible.
The positive thing here is that for the first time in years, Australian politics is also discussing practical issues, not just barking at competitors.
I haven’t been able to check everything, so the reliability of the details may not meet the strictest scientific criteria.
