Bushfires blamed on global warming (letter)


by Alan Barron

News Weekly, February 21, 2009
Sir,

It is extremely disappointing that the CSIRO has chosen this time to push its view that global warming was responsible for the tragic bushfires on the weekend (Sydney Morning Herald, February 9, 2009).

What poppycock! It had nothing to do with global warming.

Fact: Some fires were deliberately lit.

Fact: Vast areas of bushland have been locked away as national parks, and no back-burning has been allowed for years. Hence, the bush was highly susceptible to any adverse weather conditions.

Fact: The Earth has not heated up, but has cooled in the past decade. Global temperatures since 2002 have on average declined by 0.6 of a degree.

Everything seems to be blamed on global warming these days, and the public are being misled over erroneous claims concerning global warming.

The CSIRO should stick to the facts. It's time to call a halt to the unnecessary scare-mongering on climate change.

Alan Barron,
Grovedale, Vic.
