The Left Claims Australian Bushfires Are Caused By Climate Change…So Why Are Jails Filling Up With Arsonists?

(Tea Party 247) – Australian authorities have arrested a stunning number of people for deliberately starting the bushfires that have been ravaging the country.

But you’ll be told incessantly by celebrities and pundits that it’s climate change.

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

Meanwhile, a total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for starting bushfires according to data obtained by the news agency AAP.

In New South Wales, 24 people have been arrested for arson and now face prison sentences of up to 25 years.

103 of the fires in Queensland were deliberately lit, according to police, 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,” 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.”


  1. When you are committed to and controlled by a dogma, that dogma controls every interpretation. If the dogma is correct, you are in luck. If the dogma is faulty, you should look foolish for using it. But if you have power to hurt anyone who disagrees with your use of the dogma, the dogma becomes “true” by assumption. Most of the time, it is best to ignore this foolishness if you are able to.

  2. When one country faces a liberal disaster, we all face a liberal disaster.

    Modern Liberalism……’s incinerating the world.

  3. The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway.
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.
    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.


  4. Climate Change……..

    It’s been around for 6 BILLION years.

    But who’s counting besides the loony left? And they can’t count!

  5. That is such a crock. First Obama scams us for $22 M, then the air force comes up with a tactic to scare the people into believing in an air injection infusion, so they can get more money for ‘research’, now the ‘supposed’ scientists are claiming the natural phenomenon of ice melting, is being used as a scare tactic to claim we’re all going to flood out. That way, they can get ‘research’ money to try to stop it. They must think their talking to children. A normal condition, is a ‘normal condition’ that comes around every few decades. Stop trying to scare people into donating to your useless cause. We are sick of it.

  6. The Left Claims Australian Bushfires Are Caused By Climate Change…

  7. Environmentalist and environment regulation have been the cause of many of our environmental problems. An example , Montana had controlled burns where they torch the summers grass in the forest. The fire would race through maybe scorching a tree now and then and it worked fine for years,keeping the forest intact. Then environmentalist stopped them.The grass become matted and layered and when a fire started it took out the forest.Australian had to deal with the same issues as Montana, in reality, was being cause by environmentalists. Lets not forget the 183 arsonist that have been arrested. I wonder how much can be blamed on Climate change. NONE

  8. There seems to be many climate change believers commenting here about the drought, so here’s some science for you to consider: Each CO2 molecule has a kinetic diameter of 330 picometers, so it takes 9.18 x 10^18 molecules to completely overshadow one square meter of ground and intercept all the wavelengths that CO2 can absorb. At 400 parts per million, all the radiation is intercepted within the first 14 meters of the atmosphere and the heat is shared with all the other air molecules which then pass the heat along by conduction, convection, and radiation in a blackbody pattern based on their average temperature. At preindustrial levels of 200 ppm, this would happen within 28 meters, and at 800 ppm it would happen within 7 meters. At all 3 levels, the same number of molecules absorb the same amount of radiation and share the same amount of heat with the rest of the atmosphere. Increasing CO2 has NO EFFECT on the energy absorbed or emitted. Its ONLY effect is to create a deficit of wavelengths around 15 micrometers AND A CORRESPONDING SURPLUS of other wavelengths in the blackbody pattern based on the average temperature of the air column being measured.
    As the planet warms, the oceans release CO2. When it cools, the oceans absorb CO2. CO2 isn’t the driver, it’s just along for the ride. Before the Ice Age, climate was mild from pole to pole with no ice caps, 14 degrees warmer than today. The Ice Age was produced by massive volcanic hyperactivity generated in part by the North Atlantic Igneous Province. As temperatures dropped, it is said that a drop in CO2 from 760 to 600 ppm caused the ice cap to build up on Antarctica. During the Ice Age that followed, temperatures fluctuated between 3 degrees hotter and 6 degrees colder than today.
    The driver of modern climate is a lack of volcanic hyperactivity since the end of the Ice Age, allowing features from the Ice Age like ice caps, glaciers, and cold deep ocean waters to gradually warm and retreat. If a drop to 600 ppm caused Antarctic ice to build up, today’s 405 ppm can’t be causing it to melt. As long as volcanic hyperactivity holds off, global warming can be expected until the Earth reaches an equilibrium 3 to 14 degrees hotter than today.
    The one thing that could be done to possibly mitigate against global warming is to increase evaporation. Right now evaporation is constantly cooling the planet 192 degrees C to produce 990mm of rainfall per year worldwide. One third of the land area is desert with many dry lake beds. Get fresh water from the ocean via solar and wind power, then fill many of the dry lake beds and irrigate much of the desert. This will increase evaporative cooling at the surface. Fighting greenhouse gases will fail to stop any global warming because greenhouse gases are not causing it.

  9. Fires need both ignition and dry fuel. In the California wild fires, early reports were of arsonists. Later the main cause was determined to be sparking electric wires from a poorly maintained electric system as well as lack of forest management. So this past year in California , many residents had to endure long electric blackouts. The electric company responsible has declared bankruptcy. These are not simple events – we all need to read widely to understand what is going on. Some places are experiencing flooding, drought, more violent winds, crop failure, etc. All of our children inherit the world that we leave them.

  10. It seems Australia is becoming California with the fires, gun-grabbing and other super liberal policies.The people should study CA and its policies, regulations, and taxes to see what’s ahead for the.

  11. Greta and Hollywood, ignorance of Climate Change is why young and adults are fire and Sea level rise’s are mentally distorted.

  12. I am a Democrat and I am not crazy as you right-wing nutjobs are blabbering about! Climate change has resulted in Australia experiencing record drought. The drought caused many plants to die and become tinder which is what the bush fires are burning. If the normal rains came to Australia, there would be less chance of having the bush fires. It is so simple a right-wing nutjob could understand!

    • Record drought: climate change!
      Record rainfall: climate change!
      Record flooding: climate change!
      Record snowfall: climate change!
      Record high temps: climate change!
      Record low temps: climate change!
      Record tornados: climate change!
      Record mudslides: climate change!
      Record hurricanes: climate change!

      Yes. The climate changes. Let’s hope it doesn’t change as much as it did thousands of years ago before we burned coal and drove F350s.

  13. Arsonists may have started the fires with matches, but the drought was caused by climate change.
    Can’t believe you guys are that dumb. Morons are plentiful in America

    • joe australia has a history of many droughts. so you can’t call it climate change. just like california this is not the first drought australia has suffered. man has no control over prevailing wind patterns.

  14. The truth is the political climate is what has changed. It’s now radical violent activism that we’re seeing all over the globe. When global alarmist are willing to torch entire nations to achieve their goals sane leaders and their governments need to get control not a few ugly rich families seeking world domination.

    • Love your answer. It seems, for the most part, common sense has left the planet but, your answer stands out and rings true!

  15. It just goes to show you that some individuals are smart, most are stupid when talking about something they are not educated about. If someone has been proved to have started a fire give them fire gear and drop them inside the fire line and tell them to put it out or die trying and that they MIGHT get a lighter sentence when they go to jail.

  16. People with extremely small poorly functioning brains need global warming because they need an enemy to put any reason into their lives. Pray to Saint Dymphna (Saint of the mentally ill) for them.

  17. You can’t blame Trump for arson. But, you can blame Trump for climate change ! I’m not sure why.
    Crime doesn’t fit the “agenda “.

  18. It is not how the fires started, but how bad the fires have become. This does NOT disprove climate change, but rather give more credence to the fact that climate change is real.

    • The fires have become worse because of restrictions on burning flammable brush. Just like California did. Human caused is right only they are all leftist liars.

    • Climate change is real, man made climate change isn’t, regardless of what Greta Thunberg,
      the High Priestess of Climate Change and her Prophets of Doom tell us.
      Just another phoney religion pretending to be science.

  19. Just what “action” are these idiots demanding? No more plastic straws? Oh yea, another tax, so they can give it away to their friends and relatives! I wonder how much carbon was needed to make Cate’s origami outfit? Tsk tsk my dear.

    • Obama’s best Chicago bud, Rahm Emanuel is the one you’re thinking of…

      “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
      – Rahm Emanuel

  20. since humans are the major reason for climate change and humans are starting most of the fires the left statement is true

    • Sorry Ken. You’re full of shit. We humans aren’t causing anything. That’s a niggeRAT lie you bought into.

  21. Since the government confiscated all weapons from the Aussies, the Muslim crime cartels have flourished and violence came with it. This is old news though. But I wonder if the Aussie police and government have identified these arsonists by ethnicity/ideology/religion, you know, are these jihadist terrorists for the most part, or just Aussies in general? T’would be nice to know, don’t you think? What more effective way to humble and/or destroy an entire country than walls of fire lit and let the wind take care of the rest?

    • I read yesterday that they had arrested several Muslims for starting the fires so you may be right.

  22. Leftists lie by nature so you cannot believe a word they say. Climate change is crap, another way for socialist/ commie regime to exert control on a population.

  23. Maybe they should put the arsonist in the middle of a field. Do a controlled fire burn 2 consume them
    I guarantee there won’t be any more fires after that. If only the government had the balls 2 do it. It would end all the fire promblems

    • Totally agree! I am waiting to hear some of the names of these arsonists – Muslims have been directed to set fires in western countries that stupidly let them in – is THAT what is going on here???

    • Yep, Muslims probably started these fires. Muhammad told them to. Muslims need to be exterminated from the planet. They’re all faggots too.
