You don't believe news outlets would lie to push an agenda? It is totally in the spirit of present-day "news" to hide the facts and blame global warming.This is an Australian News Site. If there were all these people getting caught for causing fires that are devastating their country, it'd be all over it.
I also believe in actually having research and facts. Did I say it was a possibility that there is a man made factor in what caused the fires? There is. But it is multi-layered and extreme heat which comes with Global Warming likely causes it to get to the level there is.You don't believe news outlets would lie to push an agenda?

I think regardless of why it happened, getting support to Australia is number one. Absolutely, this is a travesty and is hurting the country and endangering large groups of people. But getting the "Why?" Can be helpful in learning what to do next to prevent it. I just saw the article and saw it was kind of... Poorly written, takes a kernel of truth and expands it to a point where it becomes hard to believe.Not sure why anyone cares why it was started or is spreading. Bigger concern is the safety and protection of the people and wildlife while it goes on, and probably how to stop it/slow it down. "Fake news" or not, from either side of the argument (arson or climate change), this is the reason I don't pay attention to the news basically whatsoever. Too much reporting on speculation of what caused events rather than trying to find a solution or actually help anyone.
Just came in to get updates in case anyone had heard from Grievs or Base, as I have no geographical knowledge of where they're at or where the fires are at, or the relation between the two.
5. At least 24 people have been charged for "intentionally starting bushfires". Motivation not important.1. There are fires in Australia
2. People and wildlife are getting killed because of it.
3. People were arrested for lighting fires during a season where there is a fire ban. Motivations, technically not stated.
4. No matter if it was caused by man, or nature, heat and dry weather make it spread more and make it more devastating.
