Nearly 200 People Arrested Across Australia For Deliberately Starting Bushfires

Yet media & celebrities continue to blame “climate change.”


Authorities in Australia have arrested close to 200 people for deliberately starting the bushfires that have devastated the country, yet the media and celebrities continue to blame “climate change” for the disaster.

The fires have caused at least 18 deaths, destroyed thousands of homes, millions of hectares of land and killed hundreds of millions of animals.

A total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for lighting bushfires over the last few months, figures obtained by news agency AAP show.

In New South Wales, 24 people were arrested for arson, risking prison sentences of up to 25 years.

In Queensland, police concluded that 103 of the fires had been deliberately lit, with 98 people, 67 of them juveniles, having been identified as the culprits.

“The link between arsonists and the deadly fires that devastate Australia every summer is well known and well documented, with the rate of deliberately lit fires escalating rapidly during the school holiday period,” reports Breitbart’s Simon Kent.

Around 85 per cent of bushfires are caused by humans either deliberately or accidentally starting them, according to Dr Paul Read, co-director of the National Centre for Research in Bushfire and Arson.

“About 85 per cent are related to human activity, 13 per cent confirmed arson and 37 per cent suspected arson,” he said. “The remainder are usually due to reckless fire lighting or even just children playing with fire.”

Read also highlighted the link between school holidays and kids starting fires, commenting, “School holidays are a prime time for fire bugs, but especially over summer.” The kids have got time to get out there and light, and the most dangerous adults choose hot days.”

Police are now working on the premise arson is to blame for much of the devastation caused this bushfire season. A strike force will investigate whether blazes were deliberately lit, and bring those responsible to justice. https://t.co/TWh1KQycs4 @ebatten7 #NSWFires #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/Dul8dMFrZv

“Police are now working on the premise arson is to blame for much of the devastation caused this bushfire season,” reports 7 News Sydney.

New environmental policies that restrict “prescribed burning,” where land owners burn off flammable ground cover in cooler months in a controlled manner so it doesn’t contribute to bushfires, have also exacerbated the problem.

The fact that the bushfires were deliberately started and have nothing to do with man-made climate change hasn’t prevented that being the dominant narrative.

Last week, Bernie Sanders blamed those who were “delaying action on climate change” for “the blood-red sky and unbreathable air in Australia because of raging forest fires.”

Virtue signaling celebrities have also pounced on the issue to push their dogma, including at the Golden Globes last night when Australian-born Cate Blanchett asserted, “When one country faces a climate disaster, we all face a climate disaster.”

‘When one country faces a climate disaster, we all face a climate disaster.’

They must be really desperate to keep the false climate change narrative alive to do such stupid things. Not only do they destroy lives and the economy, but kill people as well. What kind of mindset do you need to do this?


  1. Cate Blanchett demanded action on climate change on the stage of the Golden Globes that had pretty flowers flown in from Italy because – they’re entitled.
    Russell Crowe might have made more of a statement if he’d told these pretentious twats where to shove their Golden Globe in the interests of a Green Planet.
    Why do these toss-pots think they know better than anyone else how to run the world?



    • Sticking with the Golden Globes, but not on the subject of climate change (sorry):
      Has Tinseltown not changed very much?
      On the very day Weinstein hobbled into court, Ricky Gervais stands on the stage and says:

      ” The Irishman was amazing . . . long, but amazing. It wasn’t the only epic movie. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood? Nearly three hours long.
      Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and by the end, his date was too old for him. Even Prince Andrew’s like, ‘Come on, Leo, mate, you’re nearly 50-something.’ ”

      #metoo is sooo last year darling?



  2. Fascinating how the New Zealand Media are trying to pretend these arrests haven’t happened and continue with the ‘Climate Change’ propaganda…
    I honestly believe that Dear Leader Ardern will declare a ‘Climate Emergency’ in the very near future…
    Can we even have an Election if the Country is in a ‘State of Emergency’??



  3. I been away for a few days and have just flicking around a few sites catching up. On KB I see David Farrar is ripping into Scott Morrison’s lack of leadership –not returning from holiday soon enough etc. Not blaming climate change but not completely dismissing it either as a cause. Usual “pinky” stuff.

    Jo Nova has a good piece saying the media are pushing Morrison in the same way they did Tony Abbott.
    The MSM and the alarmists will ignore the arsonists and any negative effect the Green policies had on the fires because they know their decades long narrative is being totally exposed , so Morrison is going to be the co-ordinated method of distraction.




  4. I’ll post this again in the morning. An estimated half a billion animals and birds have been killed by this Australian Holocaust.
    Interesting report, worth watching especially the cause of the severity of the fires (it is NOT climate change) and the bits about the criminal misuse of water – a bit of a wake up call for us in NZ considering Maori claims to water and companies selling it to the Chinese and other foreigners. No one should own water.
