I know that this forum is mainly for music and dancing but I just want to offer my heart felt condolences to all in Australia, nothing shocks me in this crazy world anymore but it took some believing when the amount of wildlife that was dead ran into not 1000s, not MILLIONS, But BILLIONS Plus Human life as well. Some of this Wildlife may never recover which makes me very sad as I love all things to do with nature. Most of the bush fires where natural causes, but some according to the Police were started on purpose, I now what I would do with these N--B HEADS, take them into the forest tie them to tree and leave them (see how they like being burnt). Take my hat off to all the Artists and stars that have donated cash RESPECT to all of them. One day the Human race will get its act together hope its sooner rather than later Keep The Faith. Respect all living things.
The news from Australia is catastrophic, a BILLION animals lost. What's especially devastating is that much of the wildlife is unique to the continent: i.e. not found anywhere else. So there might not be any coming back for some species. There are many appeals online for those wishing to donate. Please do.
It is very very sad about the the loss of human and animal life. It is so incredible that billions of animals could have perished in these fires. Plus the loss of their habitat.
I will make no comment on the abilities of PM Morrison during this disaster. But really hope tthat it is over very soon and that Australia can begin the long process of recovery as quickly as possible.
Good Luck Australia!
Excellent post Rod. I find what's happening in Australia heartbreaking. I cannot bear to see animals suffer and I'm with you in wishing to see a punishment meted out to the arsonists of a kind which the law won't allow. The human victims deserve every sympathy too of course, and it's good to see the charitable aid initiatives gaining momentum.
there appears to be a real effort to help koalas. I am worried about an old ship mate who lives in a bad area in Victoria , who has not sent me a Christmas card for first time in years
