The weather bureau today made a timely announcement that eastern Australia is experiencing dry weather conditions, which they attribute to an El Nino event. However, skeptics argue that this is simply a normal dry season that has been occurring in Australia since Captain Cook’s arrival in 1770.
Climate change activists are eagerly jumping on this announcement, viewing it as further evidence of man-made climate change. They see the dry weather as a consequence of our actions and a warning of what’s to come.
But what the Bureau of Meteorology failed to mention is the ongoing geoengineering program being conducted by a secret government department, commonly known as the Deep State. This program involves the intentional manipulation of the atmosphere using substances like barium sulphate and aluminium. These chemicals are allegedly being used to help facilitate deliberate fires, which will be started when the conditions are deemed suitable. Once the fires are underway, rural and urban fire brigades will be mobilized to combat them.
In Queensland, the fire and emergency services have implemented new rules for firefighting, disregarding centuries-old techniques. This decision has raised eyebrows, as it coincides with the emergence of newly-formed aerial water tanker companies. Critics suspect a collusion between the authorities and these companies, benefiting both financially.
Under the new rules, aerial water tankers will be deployed to dump small amounts of water on the fire-fronts. However, many argue that this method is ineffective. The cost to the fire and emergency services is exorbitant, with aerial firefighters costing tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars per day. In contrast, using traditional methods with community-owned equipment comes at no cost to the state.
In the past, experienced firefighters used graders or dozers to create fire breaks and burn back into the wind to control the spread of fires. This method was considered effective and cost-efficient. However, it has now been replaced by water-bombing using aircraft with large water capacities. This approach is widely regarded as ineffective, particularly in cases of crown fires or massive grass fires.
Fraser Island serves as an example of the limitations of aerial water bombing. Residents on the island can attest to its ineffectiveness in combating fires. Many argue that resources should be allocated towards building proper firebreaks ahead of the fire season, rather than relying on the expensive and less effective water-bombing strategy.
Critics claim that water-bombing is just another strategy devised by the mainstream political parties, such as the ALP and LNP, to maintain their authority and control. They urge the public to follow the money and consider the motivations behind these decisions.
This article was written by a firefighter with 50 years of experience in both rural and urban firefighting. The author brings insight and firsthand knowledge to challenge the current approach to combating fires and highlights the need for more cost-effective and efficient strategies.
