Just in case it isn't warm enough or polluted enough, or fire banned enough, cities throughout Australia continue to set off explosions and pyrotechnics to suit a relatively small minority.

They're exempt from Total Fire Bans.


Here is a question I've always wondered about. Cigarette butts cause fires, so why isn't smoking banned under a total fire ban?

Using an angle grinder or welder in the open is, so why not that?

The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that".

Don't worry. Apparently Fireworks and Fireworks started fires do not add to warming.

quote:
The New Year's Eve family fireworks at Elder Park in Adelaide's CBD almost ended in disaster when a section of reeds along the River Torrens caught fire last night.

Footage of the fire was posted online last night, showing reeds stretching along the River Torrens catching alight just to the north of the footbridge in the Adelaide CBD.

The incident occurred following the 9:00pm fireworks at the Elder Park celebrations near Adelaide Oval in front of about 50,000 people. ...

Key points:
Fire crews extinguished the blaze within minutes with the help of firework technicians

There were calls to cancel the fireworks in the Adelaide CBD

It comes as a number of bushfires continue to burn across the state

It comes after numerous calls last week to cancel the fireworks display due to the potential fire risk and as a mark of respect to South Australian bushfire victims.

Not sure where you all are based, but I hope you, your family and friends stay safe today.

Looks like it will be horrific

Anyone listening to what this Australian professor had to say about climate change over a decade ago knew this fire season was going to be intense:

It's almost like science, with all its gathered data knows more about how climate works than Karen who is convinced it was this hot in the 60's and therefore no issue exists.

Why isn't anyone saying corona virus is fake and created by scientists to get government grants?
