Australian Greens Declare War On Fire

by | 10th, February 2011

ENVIRONMENTALISTS made the bush fires in Australia worse (say no to toilet paper!) – as they made the recent floods worse. But down under, Bob Brown, leader of the national Green Party, knows that global warming and the coal industry it to blame to recent fires in Perth. As he says:

“The coal industry has to face it and take responsibility,” he told reporters in Canberra on Wednesday, adding the bushfires had been more severe because of climate change.

Only:

A 56-year-old Perth police officer has been charged by summons over a bushfire that destroyed 72 properties.

It is understood sparks from an angle grinder the sergeant was using during a total fire ban started the blaze.

Curse those coal-powered angle-grinders!
